Dreaming Deer # 1 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In P. Craig Russell’s Dream Hunters, when the Monk visits Dream, we see dreamers within Morpheus’ cloak. After the fox gets her revenge for the death of the Monk and her story comes to an end, we get a final glimpse of The Dreaming and we once again see several dreamers swirling around Morpheus’ cloak.

One of those dreamers is this Dreaming Deer.

This deer appears in Dream Hunters # 4, on page 29 in panel 4.

Like in the published piece, Anna successfully captured the dreaminess of the moment with this character. Her use of clouds and swirls in the background allude to the dreaming and there is a hint of sadness in this deer’s eyes. I appreciate the expressiveness she managed to capture in this portrait.
