It's a cool spring morning on the plains. A dense fog blankets the ground. The silence of the morning is broken by a distant rumble that grows louder and louder. Soon the ground begins to tremble and shake. Then, out of the fog, emerges the great bulls of the bison herd leading the mass of great beasts right towards you. When you picked this campsite, you chose poorly.

I usually get out 1 or 2 a week these days. I've slowed down a bit due to a full family/work schedule.

Didn't realise they were only supershaggy on the front :) Love the ominous looking snorting and pawing. Kinda makes you want to get the hell out of the way ;)

Really beautiful render. There might have been somewhat more variation in size and form of the buffaloes, but I don't know whether they have sufficient parameters for that. The POV is fantastic!
