About Reindeer

Reindeer are mammals of the deer family along with moose and elk. They are also called caribou. Only Female reindeer of the deer family grow antlers. Reindeer live in the far northern regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. This includes both sedentary and migratory populations. It is the only representative of the genus Rangifer. Herd size varies greatly in different geographic regions.

Reindeer have magical eyes that change colour. Reindeer have thicker bodies and shorter legs. They stand about 2 to 5 feet high at the shoulder. They can weigh as much as 700 pounds and they have thick coats of brown, gray, or whitish fur. Their feet have wide hooves and they live together in herds.

Colouring a Reindeer

After the drawing of a reindeer is completed we move forward with coloring the reindeer. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colours. Reindeer are mostly brown in colour so we fill brown colour in reindeer. We use white and black colour for the shading and finishing of the drawing as always. You can fill color according to our wish too.

Colour Details:

  • Dark Brown
  • Light Brown
  • Dark Red
