On holiday in the Cotswolds (England) last year we visited Cotswold Wildlife park where they have rhinos grazing on the lawn to the grand manor house.

These two stood looking at each other as I took the photo. (I took hundreds of photos of the herd just to get a few best shots). It gave me the idea for 'Stand Off', which is more like they would behave in the wild. So I put them into a wild environment.

I used pan pastels for the background and Rembrandt pastels for the rest on Hahnemule Pastelfix Paper.

Very nice Lin. I like the way you have put them into the right environmental background.

Thanks
I always try to move them to somewhere more natural.

Well done Lin Just one thought maybe to attach the shadow to the feet to anchor them more to the ground

Very nice. I agree. Natural settings are the best.
