Santa's Reindeer - Rudolph by celesse Santa's Reindeer - Rudolph by celesse
:rudolph: Everybody kept asking for Rudolph, so here he is :P

I've always thought the idea of a glowing nose was rather absurd, so I decided to change it around a bit. Apologies if you prefer the original, but this is my personal take on the reindeer.

Bonus tidbits: Rudolph is Dancer's older brother, and both Rudolph and Dancer are the offspring of Donner.

See the rest of the reindeer here -

His glowing red nose lays source confused me. Why would his nose bred, and glowingly?! O.o
And, honestly, how is that cute or anything? XD
 
Oh well, it's still fun to draw xD

I really like this take on him :D The glowing nose was always intriguing to me, but never seemed realistic. I like the red fur patch idea a lot :3 Wonderfully sweet little deer too.

Merry Christmas

the red nose is shown by a reddish patch of fur on his nose, read the description next to Rudolph

actually if Rudolph didn't hath glowy red nose then why would santa recruit him AT ALL??? ee my point? I think genetics wonked up and yeah. also Rudolph deserves many hugs for the teasing he endured like

"Ole' Neon nose".

"Despite his lack of grace, he is extremely talented at navigating in adverse weather conditions, (...)"
Even if his nose doesn't really glow, he does have the special talent to find his way through tough weather like storms, etc, which was always the reason why Santa recruited him, because his sleigh would've gotten off track without that skill of Rudolph

but without the glowing nose how would santa have known what a fine navigator he was??? plus he would not have been teased if it was just a patch of fur. case closed.

Did you know that both male and female reindeer grow horns, but most males shed them before winter... females keep them all the way until they give birth in spring. 
Therefore, there is a %99.99 chance that Rudolph was actually a girl. Including the rest of Santa's team.
