This is a piece I've been toying with for a bit. The idea started as a color study after a trip I took to the Grand Canyon and Sedona's amazing red rocks. I had read up on the history of the Canyon and how rangers would patrol the early roads ahead of caravans to make sure they were safe, Since Pumas (or Mountain Lions, as they are also called) naturally live in this habitat, I thought it would be interesting to create a moment of tension between the rangers and the puma. This is clearly the puma's territory, but the men seem to be armed? What will happen?
I'll be posting a couple of earlier WIPs soon -- I'm currently at CTN Expo and the bandwidth here is terrible so I'm uploading what I can.
