Bison Herd in Winter by deskridge Bison Herd in Winter by deskridge
In a secluded valley somewhere in the Rockies a hundreds of bison munch on the last grasses of the season under blue skies. Winter has come and the first snows have dusted the ground. Atop a rise at the edge of the valley, three bulls with steamy breath watch over and guard the massive herd.

This one was a bit of test to see if I could use Vue's ecosystem feature to create a herd of animals. The bison in the forground should look pretty familiar as just lifted them directly from some of my previous works.


Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP


Thanks for looking!
Daniel

This was made using mostly CGI techniques, but there was some digital painting involved too.

Is the buffalo in the front possessed or do buffalo in general have red eyes?

They have light brown irises that will indeed look red under the right lighting conditions.

For thousands of years, the wolves hunted the four-legged mobile meat. Then white men shot all the four-legged mobile meat. Then farmers moved in and started raising a new breed of four-legged mobile meat. Now the farmers complain when the wolves hunt their four-legged mobile meat. Aren't we silly?
