Illustration Friday: Plain

Okay... I will admit. I pluralized the topic and went for "plains" instead.

Every time I go to Yellowstone, I wonder how bison actually hold their heads up... They're awfully top heavy. And, even though they could flatten me in about two seconds, they give the appearance of wise old sages.

So, for this drawing, I decided to explore the idea of the buffalo as the old grandpa storyteller of the Rockies. Granted, he is a wild animal, so he may gore these cute little ground hog kids if they get out of line.

Hey, and if you haven't seen 'em yet... Here's a couple of my other posts that are in the same vein:

Davy Crockett
Fat Squirrel

this is amazing! I think of buffalo the same way. ...I wouldn't worry about them goring anything...after all, they are gentle giants, and they are pretty much extinct now *sad face* Now I'm rambling like some weird-o. Enough. Great illustration, the characters are adorable.

Wait... how did I not comment on this one yet? I love the colors on that buffalo. He looks friendly in a scary kind of buffalo way too... which is impressive. Very nice, man.
