Ice Age Rhino

Ice Age Rhino

Piece description from the artist

Here is another image of one of my favorite extinct mammals of the Pleistocene Megafauna: the Woolly Rhino, or Coelodonta Antiquitatis. This shaggy beast was common in ice age Europe and is even depicted in cave art in southern France. Though extinct now, they may have still been alive around 8000 BC in western Siberia. I decided to depict this one up close. I really wanted him to fill the frame. He's walking through a grassy field in the fall. Hence, I gave the grass a reddish gold hue. It's a cold day, and you can see the animal's breath. Also, a slight mist clings to the ground. Otherwise, there is little in the way of background other than distant hills and clouds.
