Dust Storm by eidolic Dust Storm by eidolic
I've been working with bison for the last 5 months here at Theodore Roosevelt National Park so I figured my summer can't be complete without a drawing of buffalo... :) This was a commission for a co-worker I just finished today. I LOVE it!! Almost don't want to let it go.

I've been chased by these things so much that it was easy for me to decide what to do. I tried to keep the attention on the center bull by making him just a big old brute. Thanks for looking!!

12x18" graphite drawing.

Stunning!
I love the composition and the contrast of the fur texture and the soft swirling dust at the bottom

Chased by bison?? How the heck did you outrun them?

I really love the atmosphere you have created with this drawing. It's extremely compelling and seems to embody the sacredness of these animals.

Whoa, nice perspective! The heads actually look fuzzy and the head anatomy looks great too ;) I love the dust around them.

this is awesome man! have you been to the National Museum of Wildlife art in Jackson? They have a huge painting in there by Robert Bateman called "Chief" that I'm sure you would love. [link] the little photo here doesn't do it any justice, but if you've seen it you know how awesome it is.
