So, I love cows, the vast majority of bovine creatures really, because they’re just so darn cute. They’re like over-sized puppies, and it helped that once a cow tail-whipped my little bro in the face when he was a kid (that is one of my favourite memories as a kid).

And bison, are a type of cow, at least I’m fairly certain they are, and they have this adorably curly fur. Which one day I’d like to ruffle my hands in to see if it’s as soft as I think it is.

I think I went overboard with the reddish-pink around his eye, however his nose turned out wonderfully.

Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.
