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…

Thanks for looking!

Holy, epically sensational! The Wondrous Buffalo is stunning and The Lakota Hunter looks incredible. The designs, interaction, expressions, poses, horns, fur, eyes, nostrils, anatomy, muscles, scythe, markings, feathers, pants, muscles, stances, battle, sky, clouds, wind, field, sharp grass, plant life, mountains, ledges, cliffs, crevices, shadows, effects, movement, flow, realisticness, perspective, atmosphere, textures, hues, concept, composition, uniqueness, lighting, colors, style, and other details are also sensational. Amazingly Radical work! :iconfantasticplz:

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

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