It'll be a nice weight off your mind now Michael.

That's brilliant. The fur rendering is great and I love the overall tones.

How difficult is it to paint a portrait faded out over the background, or is that fairly straight forward with airbrush?

Your rendering of the fur and the details of the eye and nostril are great. The whole concept is wonderful. The entire series is so well done. It is different than usually presented where so often the animal is the spirit and what a great tribute to the old chiefs.

Michael I've painted a lot of buffalo with the airbrush over the last 10 or 15 years but never with the proficiency that you have attained. It is truly awesome the detail you've created in the face of the bison. Thanks for the close-up. Look forward to your next project.

I'm speechless... This work is not only technically perfekt, but it also brings up a very emotional, serene state of mind...

I just love it, and personally I think this is the best one out of that serie.

I love it! You have a great style. I also love the native warrior/hunter ghost. I get the sense of the two having been in danger of extinction, only one of them making a comeback.
