Big Five: Buffalo Breakdown by CrazyAsian1 Big Five: Buffalo Breakdown by CrazyAsian1
Hey everyone! To kick off my new initiative with the Big Five I'm making available the breakdowns/explanations I created for the 5 mechas I designed. As a bonus you can download the full res version for your individual scrutiny!! I'll be adding 1 per week so stay tuned for more :)

For those of you who missed it. I've made prints available for all 5 of the Big 5 illustrations plus the most recent Rhino painting I did. They are for sale through Deviantart which has lots of options for purchasing so please take a look.

ALL PROFITS MADE FROM SALES OF ANYTHING RELATED TO BIG FIVE WILL BE DONATED THE INTERNATIONAL ANTI POACHING FOUNDATION (IAPF.)

The IAPF operates in South Africa/Zimbabwe in Kruger National Park. Their mission is to protect the animals of the park through anti-poaching patrols, aerial drone surveillance, animal tagging/relocation, and community education/outreach. Their efforts inspired me to design the Big Five series. I believe in their cause and as a token of thanks for providing an invaluable service to the planet I've dedicated all profits made through print sales to them. They need the cash more than I do.

I repeat again:
ALL PROFITS WILL BE DONATED TO THE IAPF

You win both ways. You buy some awesome art, and you support an even more awesome cause. :)

Thanks!!!!!!!
Rob

I love all of your ideas on these endangered animals being the protectors of all of the endangered! I really think it is brilliant, from just the art to the practical design of these animals! 
BRILLIANT!clap remake 1a
And also, thank you for showing african wild dogs. They really aren't as well known to be endangered as the others.

I'm curious what these robotic animals would be fighting given that they possess no armament.

:D This is genius. I especially love the Oxpeckers, and their exceedingly cool function as a UAV.
