Steeve Good opened a 3D Deer Contest on his blog http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/08/3d-deer-cutting-demonstration-plus.html.
Along with the rules of the contest he provides instructions and video on how to cut a 3D Deer without a pattern.
Today I cut 2 little deers, the height of the tallest is about 1 1/2". A penny is for a reference.
Back to practicing,
