-part 2- development
You might ask, why a deer?
The truth is, I gained all my ideas to create certain things through hearing-i.e. music, pieces, songs, etc. From the abstract hearing, develop into visual picture-/feeling drawn inside mind.
So, what was the “music mood” when I was brainstorming the ideas for this assignment? Well, since it’s Chinese New Year season (January-February), “oriental pieces” are filling my vibe-list. There many music on my list but I’m going just simplify it by mentioning which are the pieces has a big impact on this “brainstorming phase”

3. 鹿 (lu-deer) -by TOMO
Those are some of the top notch lists. And funny enough the song on the second list is called “deer”. Hence I decided to choose deer as the base animal for my character creation.
After I have set my starting point, I did some research of story-mythology-fable, etc. for this animal that I had chosen i.e. DEER.
There are many inspiring role that deer has in the record of mythology as a read such as:
1.The Legend of White Deer;
2. Being a messenger of God;
3. Gold Horned Deer (Slavic);
4. Sacred animal in Japan;
5. As the accompany of Jurōjin (Seven Gods of Fortune);
6.Deer Dance in Japan (Ritual);
7. Fuzhu 夫诸 (Deer-like creature with four antlers who is gentle and sweet and brings floods and chaos everywhere it goes.)
