    I'm certain that fur or strand based hair would look the best on this bison. But it seems to be a real challenge to get a good look, and then there's the idea of getting the desired results for both Poser and Studio. So these hair sheets should produce a solid result. I mean, look at how our Lion mane turned out. That's pretty solid too. I was hopeful as I was modeling the lion mane that we could get some thing good. And when Laurie got her hands on it, it turned to gold.

    He's starting to look like the buffalo I had outside my truck window.

    .....And i eat Bison burgers! Love Bison Steaks and Burgers! Buy it whenever it is available which is NOT always! And of course would love a whole hide with sculpted head and horns.

    If you make the skin for this can Chris also make a good Buffalo hide rug like the old Bearskin rugs (I have never been able to find of any decent quality in the Poser-verse!)?

    Maybe on face and chin where it would be hanging down, but on neck and hump seems curlier thicker looking hair would look more realistic don't you think?
    Actually I am curious....and this could go out to Laurie too.....is there a way of texturing for curlier fur or nappy fur and hair instead of smooth straight look? How are the Afro curly hair created for Poser? Is that strand?

    Saw an old western movie with Charles Bronson (God I love those old movies especially the westerns) where he tried to find and kill a white buffalo of Indian dreams terrorizing the land.
    I hope a white texture is created for this beauty as well. I already have two bison and despite my begging at the time no white texture for either.
    That might be the sale clincher that determines me buying this beauty. Hint! Hint! ;)

    Hmm, on a rug/flat hide it might be easier to make/use Poser and LAMH hair to generate the "fuzziness"/fur. That actually would be pretty easy for me to do. That would be a cool prop:)

    (And LOL! I make a MEAN buffalo bacon cheeeseburger:)

    Yes I definitely envision doing a white buffalo version as an add-on as I want that for my own artwork:)

    The strands or "fuzziness" could be just on the edges to minimize resource use....I have never used hair room and such so I shy away from even any suggestion to it like an abused feral dog shies away from human hands. :(
    Also would be cool adding morphs to make it less flat and lumpier in appearance and even better to create a folded morph to drape it over pole. Also, corded stretch frame and fleshing tools for native American treating of the hide.
    Bison Bacon or just with Bison burger with regular bacon! :) God you just made me salivate......Peanut butter sandwich is just NOT going to fix that now. Thanks! LOL

    Here we go. Spent a long day today wrapping up the hair sheets on our Bison. I also added more sheets along the back and under the belly. It's been a ton of work, but I think we have something now.

    you know, not only need a buffalo hide blanket, but a buffalo hide robe/cloak with and without the head as a headdress.
