"The buffalo can be stubborn with their traditions, but they still have their hearts in the right place."


With her four little hooves echoing in the steppes, the stampede shall go on generation after generation... Until another bunch of settling ponies decide to plant more apple trees or whatever.

Probably one of my most successful pieces this far in technical side, or so I feel like. Although the quite simple palette was there to ease things out. Everything just locked into their places like they should. Only thing I changed in the process with this one was not to start with grayscale, instead I went straight to color like I used to do two years ago or so.

Wow! This is captivatingly beautiful and very well done. Might I be able to use it on YouTube for a country song I've worked on? I'll give credit of course :)

Loving the composition and the background in this -- the complementary colors, use of interesting shapes in every element of the piece (from the rocks to the clouds to the cacti to the lines in the dirt/sand), and how you painted the dust is all very appealing to the eye. Don't have anything negative to say about this at all. Great work!! :aww:

ABSOLUTELY fantastic. Your work gave me GREAT inspiration for my own art that I am currently working on including the Buffalos. I really adore your style, love what u did with the characters! :la:
Not to mention how much detail went into the background, lightning, dust, textures, those brush strokes...
