Jagermeister by screwbald Jagermeister by screwbald
Loose translation of the German poem:

This is the hunter's badge of glory:
That he protects and tends his quarry,
Hunts with honour, as is due,
And through the beast to God is true.

Jagermeister by ~screwbald is an amazing work of art. At first glance you may wonder why a buck would be hunting - but look closer - he's taking out the resident wolves in his forest. Everything about this piece pays homage to the beauty of nature and the careful balance between predator and prey. ( Suggested by Marker-Guru and Featured by cooley )

Dignity, nobility...pagan hunter king of the forest wears the cross necklace, he has been christianized through centuries.... Meaningful work, full of references, the deer strikes an haughty pose.

What an amazing piece of art! And the poem is a wonderful touch. Whenever I look up anthro art, I always see wolves in loincloths carrying bows and arrows, hunting deer, howling, and looking all 'majestic' and 'powerful' and 'hardcore.' Just because a deer is a herbivorous prey animal doesn't mean it can't be majestic and powerful and hardcore too!

I clicked on this because I like the liquor (heheh.. ^^;) but I have to say this is an incredibly beautiful piece of art. While most anthro art is okay in my opinion I really am in awe of this character's design, and everything about the execution is just great (I ADORE the background! :heart:). Really beautiful work.

Wunderschön *_*

Wonderfull, but the correkt word is "Jägermeister" - I know only the german and the nordic lands like sweden and so on uses this ä ö and ü and your keyboard hadn't this key ^^"

If you need the correkt and complete text of the Poem, here is ist ;)

"Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild,
dass er beschützt und hegt sein Wild,
weidmännisch jagt, wie sich's gehört,
den Schö;pfer im Geschö;pfe ehrt."

Do you like german and can you speak it? =)

Amazing! There's so much I like about this picture:
1) The lighting and detail
2) The dramatic pose
3) The character himself
4) The german-style lettering and reference to the poem
5) The association to the drink Jagermeister :p
6) And, of course, the certain black humour to the whole piece
