It’s been some time and I still can’t get bison off the brain. “Indian Head” or “Bison” nickels were always an object of curiosity when I was young. I’ve been experimenting with creating a little mint of my own from assets from my first bison sketch. I’m playing with the idea of creating a bison nickel mint in AS3. The idea would be to save out nickel images that would pull from several sets of images, mix them together, and end up with a bunch of slightly different, unique nickel images. I don’t remember the bison nickel coming back in 2005, guess I missed that. Maybe I can make some posters on etsy to save up and buy one of these.
The image is part of a template I created when saving out some low res files… I thought it looked kinda interesting. Hopefully more to share soon.
