I can't stop staring at them. They look splendid.

Personally I do not mind the flower switching sides on the female; if you want it that way to make the baby look cuter then that is a valid design choice. But I am probably an outlier.

Based on this sketch, I am certain that the line art will look lovely.

I hope that the tail will be the same color as the neck leaves/flowers...that would be so cute.

I do like how the neck looks now, less puff, but still defined and regal.

These look lovely!

Still think the hatchling and adult females should have a head flower on both sides, both for consistency and just because I think it'd look nice. Flipping the hatchling would also work, but I don't know if you'd actually do that.

Some others' suggestions I'd like to second:
- Straighten the adult male's back, but please don't make it slant down so much again. His hind legs are drawn about the same size as his forelegs, so the height of his back shouldn't be shrinking very much, if at all, either. Deer actually appear to have fairly rectangular torsos. Some examples, mostly bucks but threw a doe in too: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
- Also tone down the curve of the baby male's back. Again, their backs are quite straight
- Smooth out the transition from the female's rump to her leg a bit more
- Give the antlers on the male the same number of prongs
- Tone down the S shape of the male's neck
- Give the male a lil smile and/or have him look at the player
- Neck vines for the male

(That was almost everything other people pointed out, probably a bit much, sorry)

Might want to have the male fawn hump his back when he bucks or have it level when leaping, not kink it that way, he looks like he's broken his hip. I looked up a few things so you can get a good side view of real fawns making these motions. You know that old saying about how a picture can say a thousand words...a fawn keeps their back level when leaping, only humping it when at the gallop when all hooves are on the ground or when hopping. The only way their hip would be connected to the torso like that is if the spine in that area was broken or the hip shattered.

One is on Youtube.

This is not personal opinion...this is the sort of thing that would be backed up by people like forest rangers, zoo keepers, vets, and clearly, wildlife photographers.....

Now, that's what I'm talkin' about!

Just a note, not about Faeloras but about Sylesties in general. I wish more adult male Sylesties had a smile, or at least a little grin or smirk. It's just not fair that it's only the females who always get personable expressions.


yes!! that's something that I've noticed and been a bit bothered by. I'd love to have that looked at :-)

Liking the neck a lot more now. Glad some of the fluff on the male neck was kept. I think they'll probably end up cementing themselves as my favorites after the revamp is done. :D

For the female, I agree that flipping the image of the fawn would solve the issue of the flower's consistency of location. Also, it appears that the line to separate the hoof from the leg of the adult is missing on two of her feet. Easy fixes ^_^

As for the male, I agree that the fawn's back does look a little...err, swayback? But it doesn't have to come up much to look better. Lastly...something about the adult male's neck still doesn't seem quite natural. It pains me to say that because I know you've been working hard to fix it :X But it does have a pronounced "S" shape that real bucks do not.

Thank you for considering my input. I'm still looking forward to these revamps regardless of what you decide to change :)
