Hey, I've always loved this piece. It's haunting, and it captures the mind. I literally have to dig through my favorites every few months when I get the hankering to see it again. So, I wrote a poem for it. I hope you like it!

And so the stag,
heart-a-rest,
with a hide so white,
did spear his breast.

The life went quickly
from the tine in his chest.
The two lay still,
hunter and prey at rest.

Is this painting based off of "Tales of the Kingdom"?

Yes it is! One of the illustration has a Great King riding a stag during a fierce battle. This reminded of the scene. Very impacting work and so beautifully done. Congrats o the DD. :)

Hm, was this done in illustrator? It looks so clean for it to be Photoshop. Either way, excellent work. The way you treated the color here is very professional and attractive.

Your style is so interesting! I've never seen anything quite like it before. Beautiful!

Also, this scene reminds me a bit of "The Chronicles of Narnia", with the white stag.

Gorgeous. Reminds me of Game of Thrones- when the King is killed by the boar he was hunting. Even kind of looks like Robert, too.
