The Old Man by sdavis123061
Continuing my Sasquatch series here is the story behind this piece: I was recently reading a book about Bigfoot that had an interesting report. Back some time ago in the 1970's there was a a group of campers who told of a series of ongoing encounters with a group of Sasquatch at their campground located somewhere in the Sierra. A particular creature they mentioned that intrigued me was one they dubbed "The Old Man". They would be able to tell when he was one of the creatures in the area by the massive tracks he left measuring two feet in length. I'm estimating that would've put him somewhere in the 9-12 foot range in height, big even by Sasquatch standards. At the end of the story they described him being the only creature left in the area. The last night they had contact with him they heard his mournful cries leading them to believe that he was perhaps old and/or sick and possibly near death and the others had left him behind as they continued their migration. They never heard or saw any tracks from him again after that. I decided to paint him as I pictured him, in prime health, at the beginning of their report. Done mostly in Photo Shop and a little Painter with a Wacom and 20+ hours in time.
