The Artistic Innovation of "Deer Pattern" in Dunhuang Murals — Taking the "Nine-color Deer" Illustration Design as an Example | Amsterdam University Press Journals Online


Illustration is something closely related to life, which appears everywhere. It is exquisite, diverse and fashionable, and can be found on various objects. It is both a commodity and an art. There are a large number of classic allusions and legends in Chinese traditional culture that have been refined and redesigned by modern designers, being given new styles. The nine-color deer of Dunhuang culture is such a classic legend. After redesign, there are a large number of picture books and illustration products about it; however, the product type, quality and consumer groups are not satisfactory. This design takes the nine-color deer series illustration design as the research theme, and conducts research and exploration on the origin, history, current situation, advantages and disadvantages and prospects of the nine-color deer in commercial illustrations and Dunhuang culture. The author combines the professional design knowledge he has learned with the drawing style of modern illustrations to design a series of illustrations that have a wider audience, high economic value and good dissemination, without losing the classic cultural charm and collection value.
