The Hunter and the Buffalo by deskridge The Hunter and the Buffalo by deskridge

A Native American warrior is hunting in the grasslands of the American west.  He hears a sound from over the next rise and carefully moves in that direction.  However, cresting the hill is not some pronghorn antelope or deer.  Rather it's his worst nightmare, a massive bison bull.  The great beast stares directly at the man.  The hunter armed only with a spear freezes and locks eyes with the huge animal.  In the cold morning air, the buffalo breaths a cloud of steam as it huffs read to accept the hunter's challenge.

For this work, I wanted to give the bison a real sense of menace that threatens not only the American Indian but also the viewer.  So, I placed it high in the composition, in a dominant position where it looks down over everything.

I create this image digitally using 3D rendering applications and paint programs.

How I make art like this: fineartbydaniel.com/2017/12/18…

Tools I used to make this: fineartbydaniel.com/resources/  

Thanks for looking!

When dealing with western themed art, collectors tend to use the term "Buffalo" more often in searches.

I know this is a suggestion but...

Why not a Mammoth?

I had kind of envisioned it as a sort of spirit rather than a real buffalo
