Cape Buffalo at sunset..kinda by JordanAbernethy Cape Buffalo at sunset..kinda by JordanAbernethy
I realized I only had one picture of the Buffalo in patina. Shame on me! For a 1/4 scale bronze, he really looks alive.

Are the lines in the skin on the flank intentional or is it damage over time? Do you make these because if so that'd be amazing! So much effort is put in bringing to life this beautiful interpretation, I am especially impressed by the dedication to give the creatures face character and definition.

Yes all the lines were intentional. These animals are always rubbing up along thorny bushes or barbed wire and become very scraped and scarred up. I felt to be true to reality he needed scars, scrapes and mud....and lots of wrinkles.

Ah, I appreciate that level of detail. I noticed that you did much of the same regarding the face and his/her ears having been worn down by weather and age (the character not the actual piece). Far too often I have found such techniques used to make an over-glorified image of the creature (typically of a higher bronze or golden infused nature) with no room for realism. Few are willing to break out such a degree of patience for this, and I thank you for it. Is there another image of such a powerful idol at your disposal? I'd appreciate a link if you do! :)
