Buckhorns by strickart Buckhorns by strickart
Drawn from life that was skillfully killed, gutted, skinned, stuffed, and posed to reenact what it looked like when it was still living.

From the exhibitions at the Buckhorn Museum & Saloon, San Antonio, TX. One of my favorite places in all of Texas.

Thanks! It's actually a combination of scanning cheap typing paper and doing stuff with the levels in PS, deckled edges from old watercolor paper, and toothbrush spatterings with sepia ink.

I'VE BEEN THERE! THAT PLACE IS EEFING AMAZING! I already told them I was determined to work there if I go to UTSA! My favorite was the Texas Ranger Museum. These are sensational!

That's so cool to hear! Yeah, I love that place. Especially the weirder displays like the shrunken heads and two-headed lambs and stuff. If you could work there, go for it!

I've been to the Texas Ranger Museum too. I remember being really impressed by their old gun collection and a display of barbed wires. When I'm back in that direction, I'll try to do some sketches there. : )

the shrunken heads were awesome! My favorite freakshow was the devilfish. You did a great job on all the San Antonio sketches!

I had forgotten about the devilfish! I'll have to try drawing that sometime.
Thank you so much for the kind words! : )
