Lone Wolf by deskridge
Lone Wolf
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A lone gray wolf stands atop a pile of snow covered boulders.  Seen in profile, this alert hunter looks across a wintry landscape in the North American wilderness.   He stands next to a twisted old oak tree almost as if he is guarding its gnarled trunk.  A few fir trees can be seen in the distance and dark clouds fill the winter skies.

This is a lone wolf.  Lone wolves are wolves who, for some reason or another, don't run with a pack.  The concept of the lone wolf has come to stand as symbol for people who do things as an individual rather than as part of a group.

This is the latest addition to my wolf themed series of artworks.  For this one, I wanted to create a proud looking wolf standing tall on a natural pedestal, not just any lone wolf, but the epitome of one.  I used a vertical format with a very low horizon line to give him a heroic look.  Just to add a bit of visual interest and to break up the sky, I added the gnarled old tree, but I made it as such that it makes the wolf appear to be gigantic.

Introvert by deskridge
Introvert
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A blurred image of a woman can be seen looking out a the window of a stucco building.  Green shutters and a window box full of white flowers line the window.

I created this image as the header for my new blog about selling art online: www.IntrovertArtist.com. I wanted to create a sense of shyness with this image.  After all the blog is about selling art without having to be as outgoing as artists had to be in the past.

Running Wolf by deskridge
Running Wolf
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A gray wolf runs across a snow covered landscaped.  Perhaps it is on the hunt and has sighted its prey, or maybe he just likes dashing through the snowy field.  Either way this wolf has a look of determination on his face as he kicks up a spray of snow.  Though covered in snow, many of the scrubby plants of the field poke through the cold white blanket.  In the background, a dense forest of pine trees lines the clearing.  Above, thick cumulus clouds drift through the winter skies with only a few breaks showing the blue beyond.    

This is the latest in my series of wolf themed images.  I really like the way this one turned out with its sense of action.  I also rather like the way the winter ground cover looks in the foreground.

Perched Dragon by deskridge
Perched Dragon
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A brightly colored dragon with with red, green, and yellow scales sits perched on a high rocky outcropping.  Smoke drifts from its nostrils as it spreads its wings to catch the cool breeze.  Before it stretches a valley of rolling hills dotted with forests of fir trees.  Giant jagged mountains edge the other side, their massive snow covered peaks reaching into the sky.

This is the latest in my series of fantasy themed artworks.  For this one, I wanted to create a very bright scene, so I made the dragon extra colorful.  I love the way the mountains in the background turned out in this.

The Lady of Halloween by deskridge
The Lady of Halloween
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…


Here is a spirit of Halloween, a human manifestation of the season:  A black robed woman, on the back of a midnight black horse, holds aloft a lantern in a forest rich in the yellow, orange, and red leaves of fall.  Her face is half concealed behind a dark hood, yet you can still see that the gazes directly back at you, the viewer. The dark steed looks directly at you as well, steam blowing from it's nostrils, a much angrier visage than that of its peaceful rider.

This is my Halloween themed work for 2014.  While I create a lot of autumn themed works because I like the color of fall foliage, I rarely create a work that is specifically for Halloween itself.  However, I wanted to make a new artwork this year to submit to various Halloween themed contests and discussions and such.

Daniel Eskridge
Artist | Digital Art
United States
I am a forty-something living in the Metro-Atlanta area -- one of the few people who was actually born and raised here. I'm married and have two sons. By day, I am a software engineer at a small company. But, by night I am a 3D render artist.

I have dual degrees from the University of Georgia, one in Computer Science, the other in Fine Art. So, it seems only natural that I attempt to combine the two by producing art using a computer. Plus, I find that it's a bit more practical than painting as it doesn't require all of the clean up, harsh chemicals, or expensive supplies.

I have been a render artist since some of the first ray-tracing programs were made publicly available in the mid 80's. To date, I have completed over four-hundred images, many of which can been seen in my gallery on this site.
