Yes, my next work is a reinterpretation of the figure of the auroch I did some weeks ago. This animal has always fascinated me and basing on different references have  tried to improve the bottom line.

(Wikipedia ... scratch  study )

The ancestor of domestic cattle, is an extinct type of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia and North Africa; they survived in Europe until the last recorded aurochs died in the Jaktorów Forest, Poland in 1627.
Three wild subspecies of aurochs are recognized. Only the Eurasian subspecies survived until recent times.



The appearance of the aurochs has been reconstructed from skeletal material, historical descriptions and contemporaneous depictions, such as cave paintings.
The aurochs was one of the largest herbivores in postglacial Europe, comparable to the wisent, the European bison. Had an average height at the shoulders of 155–180 cm (61–71 in) in bulls and 135–155 cm (53–61 in) in cows. The proportions and body shape of the aurochs were strikingly different from many modern cattle breeds. For example, the legs were considerably longer and more slender, resulting in a shoulder height that nearly equalled the trunk length.

The skull, carrying the large horns, was substantially larger and more elongated than in most cattle breeds. As in other wild bovines, the body shape of the aurochs was athletic and, especially in bulls, showed a strongly expressed neck and shoulder musculature. Therefore the forehand was larger than the rear. The coat colour of the aurochs can be reconstructed by using historical and contemporary depictions. Some primitive cattle breeds display similar coat colours to the aurochs, including the black colour in bulls with a light eel stripe, a pale mouth, and similar sexual dimorphism in colour. A feature often attributed to the aurochs is blond forehead .... Sleep Sleep

Well, after this Wikiinformation I want to present the final result.

Hope you like it  Very Happy
