I have always been enamored with bison, but I wanted Badlands Brawler to be something with a different attitude than the typical bison sculpture. I took inspiration from time I spent in South Dakota and the reality of how different life is for bison in the badlands versus bison in, say, Yellowstone. That gave me this image in my head of a scrappy, tough bison ready to take on the grit of living in the badlands. I kept him healthy looking for the nice shapes that would give, but I put him in the brawler stance to reflect that toughness.
