Christmas Reindeer - designs by Kobb Christmas Reindeer - designs by Kobb
Warning - big picture! I saved it in pretty low quality to compensate on filesize, but it should be perfectly legible.

Yes. I'm a dork. I went and looked up tons of pictures of reindeer, then designed all nine of Santa's team. And came up with more detailed personalities for them than last year.

Maybe this is why I'm always rushing to finish schoolwork - I just have too much fun doing pointless things like this. =P

Hope you enjoy. :holly:

Wow, I never thought I'd see someone give personalities to the other reindeer. xD They fit their names very well, everything from the given personalities to the unique designs. The antlers are especially well done. :3

I also now picture Donner with a british accent for some reason.

I love your characterization of the reindeer. Especially making Dancer and Prancer a prankster duo.
Also, you actually made them look like reindeer, instead of skinny white-tailed deer.

Thanks! I made sure to check out actual reindeer before drawing these guys. And Rudolph's not the only one who deserves a personality, I think. ;)

This is spectactular! I love deer and christmas so this is awesome. I haven't really felt in the Christmas mood this year but this inspires me to try a similiar tactic of drawing Santa's reindeer as I see them. I hope you don't mind if I do so. Wonderful job on the anatomy, descriptions, and everything abou this piece. It really got me excited to try it out myself.

Go ahead - I'm glad to see someone else who finds this concept as weirdly fascinating as I do. :) Thanks.

Deer are too much fun to draw... I keep surprising myself by how much fun I have with these. And I do like me a little personality overanalysis, so making up stuff for characters people don't usually think about is also fun for me. :)

Dancer and Prancer remind me of another certain pair of twins from a different 80s franchise I like. Here's hoping neither of them is quite so crazed as either of the other pair though.

|DD This is srsly the coolest thing I've seen all day..

Your deer. Are awesome. O: Whenever I try to draw deer or deer-like creatures they turn out looking like horses or canines~

And.. I love the personalities. x3 Yeh, Cupid and Vixen are adorable.. Donner's cute.. And I love Blitzen. O: Rudolph looks so left out.. :,D

I totally feel like drawing reindeer now. :c

Man, your anatomy skills and pose ability have blown me away once again. O_O I love Cupid and Vixen's design. They're all great, really. But those two are my faves. :D

That's a great idea, characterising Santa's reindeer!
They all look great, and their characterisations really fit the bill! :D
Were you planning some sort of fan-fic with them?

Nah, but I thought I could get some good drawings out of it, maybe. Character-based comics, that kinda thing.

Now to conjure up some time. =P

Yaaay! I am so loving your Dancer and Prancer! They rock my world! These reindeer are awesome! Comet has got a great build, you got the whole deer thing down, mate!

(haha, and just noticed what you wrote about Cupid! hehe Queen!)

Haha - I'm not surprised you like those two. I find deer oddly fun to draw, and I practiced with photos to make sure I got them right. =P

Yeah... blame my dad for that. Queen is now part of my life. :D

Heh... it kinda does work that way, dunnit? =P

Though I suppose Comet's more Raph/Leo and Donner's Leo/Splinter. Get out of my head, all three of you! :shakefist:

There's also Thrasher who is vicious and ready to KILL people. As big as a locomotive and as powerful and very NASTY ! His existence is kept a secret to prevent any more mayhem !
