A Visit to the Sage by deskridge A Visit to the Sage by deskridge
A marmot approaches an old and grey woolly rhinocerous. It's winter, but an unusually warm one. No snow has fallen, so the rhino rests in a bed of golden grass looking over a dry vally ringed by evergreen covered hills. Perhaps the marmot is confused by the lack of snow, and the warm weather is messing with his hibernation schedule. So, he has gone to ask the oldest creature in the valley why the snow has not fallen.

Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP


Thanks for looking!
Daniel

Greetings Lord Deskridge, Did you know that poachers in Africa are catching Rhinos alive, sawing off those magnificent horns, then turnig them loose with bloody stumps ? I'm an animal lover. What people do to each other is bad enough. What they do to animals makes me sick. animals are better than people. Your art is magnificent. I am truly blown away. You are in my thoughts Magnificent One and my Spirit moves with you. I Am ShadowBear.
