Taken: 9/21/2010
Model: My brother, :iconthe-wizard-of-art:

For those of you who wonder, the bow is a PSE Sequoia longbow. The draw weight is 55 lbs. @ 28", and my brother's draw length is about 30".

:typerhappy: Comments are appreciated, but not needed. If you fave it, it lets me know you like it. :)

Excellent shot with great details! This image has a medieval or Tolkien feel to it.

Thanks. :) He's not a professional archer, but he's not bad. He and I work out a lot, which accounts for his awesome musculature. :)

Wow, I really, really like this one! Archery is a great outdoor sport that echoes generations of cultural heritage. You know, the bow is the only weapon I know of that was used by every single major civilization to arise on earth. Add a touch of God's handiwork in the design of the human body, great lighting, and awesome composition, and you have one amazing photograph.

I don't think it's actually made of Sequoia wood, that's just the name of the bow. :shrug:

Thanks, though. :aww:

One, your brother has an incredible physique.
Two, now I'm finally starting to understand how a bow has to be held.
Three, the... Game (?) of muscles is brilliant.
Awesome shot. I can picture it in a fantasy movie. Ever thought of becoming a director? xD
