Shadyufo's Tumblr

The tumblr of Shadyufo. Here you will find dead stuff, art, and dead stuff AS art!

I listed a ton of antlers in the shop earlier today! Some have already sold but there’s still some beauties in need of new homes. Stop by and check them out!

Check out these big beauties! Just listed this gorgeous set of antlers here in the shop!

Deer, deer, deer, impala!

Antique store critters. Pardon the lousy cellphone pics.

I bought this rad little buck with the intention of painting him but check out that huge hole in his head right above his shed antler!

Looks almost like a healed bullet hole but I can’t imagine how he could have survived something like that right in his brain case (no sign of an exit wound either) so I figure it might have been an injury from a fight with another buck or possibly an abscess. Either way, it was well on its way to healing when he died.

Tough critter! And now I can’t paint it so I’ll just add him to my collection of pathological skulls, haha.

Hoof from that little deer I found at the creek.

And here’s all that I could find that was left of the little deer. Everything except for the hoof is very gnawed on so I guess the dogs/coyotes got the good out of it.

Deer Tail on a Log.

I went down to the creek for a few hours this afternoon to do some bone and fossil hunting and found the remains of a young deer that was killed, probably by some dogs or coyotes. There are some monstrous coyotes around here (50-60 pound range) so that’s probably what took it out. 

Thought it was pretty odd to find the tail just sitting on a log like that. 

Gonna start slinging some more paint soon. These two are next in line.
