Rocky Mountain Buffalo
About this artwork
A great brown bison stands on a grassy hillside. Behind the brown buffalo of the American West, the tall snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains rise into the sky. The huge furry animal looks back at the mounts as if he sees something in the valley below.
This image is actually a bit of a remake of a work I did a few years ago entitle "The Great American Bison" ( http://goo.gl/IxJ60S ). I wanted to see how the new techniques for making mountains and doing animal fur stacked up against those I used in the older image. I rather like the way it turned out.
I created this image using CGI and Digital Painting techniques. To start with I used a tool called Vue from e-on Software to create the mountains, hillside, sky.
