for some reason I keep find bambi drawings and of his father maybe with odd antlers looking like they are facing backwards its starting to annoy me for some reason... you seen any? have you drawn bambi mom with him ? great drawing still ^^
Bambi's father is such a beautiful creature. I love this! great job!
Out of curiosity, in the first movie his father looked down at him and bambi told his mother she said something like "Oh really. Or it doesnt surprise me" Something like that, but if he is the prince of the forest, or the 'Head Buck' then why is bambi in line to be taking his place if the prince has many many sons. Thus him being the dad of many fawns. Unless i am incorrect because i am very confused DX haha
Old comment is super old but I thought I'd go ahead and reply anyway.
When the Prince stopped and looked down on Bambi, Bambi merely told his mother that he did. She replied that she knew (she was obviously) watching.
In terms of Bambi becoming the next Prince...I remember reading the book the movie was based on. Princes were merely roe deer bucks while elk bucks were called Kings of the Forest. I believe it something to do with size since elks are much bigger than roe deer. Disney changed Bambi's species to the white-tailed deer since Americans are more familiar with them.
In both the movie and the book, the terms weren't used as royal titles. So succession in terms of Bambi ruling the forest after his father isn't really addressed at all.
Awesome piece you have here, great tribute for the Great Prince (something I don't see very often). I must admit, while I believe that sepia is becoming over used it has worked out fabulously for this picture. Amazing job, I really enjoy it.
