A great brown bison stands on a grassy hillside. Behind the brown buffalo of the American West, the tall snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains rise into the sky. The huge furry animal looks back at the mounts as if he sees something in the valley below.
This image is actually a bit of a remake of a work I did a few years ago entitle "The Great American Bison" ( http://goo.gl/IxJ60S ). I wanted to see how the new techniques for making mountains and doing animal fur stacked up against those I used in the older image. I rather like the way it turned out.
I created this image using CGI and Digital Painting techniques. To start with I used a tool called Vue from e-on Software to create the mountains, hillside, sky.
I got the bison model from Daz3d.com, here is a link to it in the Daz Store: http://www.IntrovertArtist.com/Bison
To pose the bison I used Daz Studio, and, to add the fur, I used the plug-in LookAtMyHair. To find out more about Daz Studio, you can visit my blog where I have and article describing what it is: http://www.IntrovertArtist.com/Daz.
After importing the bison in Vue and rendering the final image there, I used GIMP to fix errors, adjust colors, and add my stamp.
Thanks for looking!
