did you know that Sawbuck is slang for a $10 bill? now you do!
So, there's the four seasons of the deer. I'm actually noticing that the "deer" part of Sawsbuck is really friggin' generic, mostly an actual deer. So it falls to the horns to make up the difference. Also I'm noticing that that image has the seasons out of order and it's pissing me off but ANYWAY
the summer collection is okay, it's what I would expect from a deer with tree branches for antlers. It's a neat idea, and ever-so-slightly reminiscent of the God of the Forest from Princess Mononoke, but here it's presented as just so boring and static. Interesting to notice its trimmed chest, styled hair, and perky tail. Trying to attract a She-buck, eh? or would that be Doesbuck...
Moving onto the best season, Autumn, Sawsbuck has toned down in his lady-attracting swagger, and now sports a droopy mahogany canopy. It's alright, I guess, but I prefer my Fall to be vibrant shades of orange and red. Decent effort, though.
winter brings chills, and the loss of leaves. Sawsbuck somehow retains its Grass typing instead of switching over to Normal/Ice (which would've been badass) and that always throws me off. I like how it grew a white winter coat though. Shit looks classy as hell, I'd definitely lead a winter-solstice hunt of that white stag.
Spring Sawsbuck is the wors, though. It ought to have a big spread of cherry blossoms, instead of a few tastefully arranged twigs. Couldn't its fur get all pink, or something? After the others displayed at least a semblance of someone trying to create a visually striking design, Spring drops the ball hard.
