Fantasy Quest by deskridge
Fantasy Quest
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

Four fantasy heroes rest on the shore of a wide gentle river.  Among them is a armored warrior, a sorceress, a massive ogre, and a grumpy dwarf.  Across the river on a forested ridge, a grey stone castle rises from the trees.  Apparently this party of adventures have reached the next location on their quest.

This image was inspired by the somewhat typical make-up of a fantasy role playing game.  I myself played a bit of Dungeons and Dragons as a kid.  I remember that no one ever wanted to be the cleric/healer, so I left such a character out of my scene.  Yet, there was usually someone who wanted to be a monster rather than than a regular player type, so I included the ogre.

I created this image using digital art techniques.  The characters were posed in Poser then exported to Vue where the rest of the scene was made.  A few bits and pieces were sculpted in Sculptris and Blender.  I used Vue to do the rendering, then GIMP and Topaz Adjust to enhance the colors.

Gold Winged Dragon by deskridge
Gold Winged Dragon
Prints: danieleskridge.com/featured/ye…

A huge dragon with red scales and yellow wings perches on a rocky outcropping.  His bright wings flex in the breeze as black smoke drifts from his nostrils.  A forest valley surrounds him with jagged mountains in the distance.  Above him, clouds fill the sky.

I've always enjoyed making fantasy art, and, of course, dragons especially.  This is the latest addition to my fantasy gallery

I created this image using digital art techniques.  The dragon was posed in Poser. It was then exported to Vue where the rest of the scene was made.  I used Vue to do the rendering, then GIMP and Topaz Adjust to enhance the colors.

Three Sharks by deskridge
Three Sharks
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

In the shallow seas, three very menacing forms emerge from the dark aquatic realm.  The most terrifying creature of the ocean is swimming right towards you, and there is not one but three great white sharks in the water.  Rays of sunlight knife through the water and create a dappled effect on the skins of the massive predators.  Meanwhile, ropey seaweed reaches from the sandy seabed to the surface creating a net to trap you as the top carnivores of the see approach.

This is an image I put together as a follow up to my work, "The Biggest Shark" ( daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites… ).  I decided to publish this one just after getting back from a beach vacation as I was in a aquatic frame of mind.  Luckily, while at the beach, I did not encounter any of these fearsome creatures.  

I created this image using digital art techniques.  The sharks were posed in Poser. They were then exported to Vue where the rest of the aquatic scene was made.  I used Vue to do the rendering, then GIMP and Topaz Adjust to paint and enhance the colors.

Running Rabbit by deskridge
Running Rabbit

A brown rabbit dashes across a springtime field beneath cloudy skies.

This was just a quick work that I put together a few days before easter so that I would have a least one new bunny themed work for the season.

I created this image using digital art techniques.  The rabbit was posed in Daz Studio where the fur was also added using the LookAtMyHair plug-in. It was then exported to Vue where the rest of the scene was made.  I used Vue to do the rendering, then GIMP and Topaz Adjust to enhance the colors.

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.
