Carnotar by deskridge
I just published my latest video tutorial on how I use ZBrush to create new textures for poser models.  You can check it out here on my blog:  goo.gl/3uJ4NF


Allosaurus by deskridge
Allosaurus
"Allosaurus"

Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A red and orange striped allosaurus emerges from a narrow, rocky canyon. Allosauruses were theropod dinosaurs that lived around 150 million years ago. This savage looking creature was likely an apex predator of the late Jurassic era.

This artwork actually started out as a test for one one of my prior work,Jurassic Invasion Force ( goo.gl/uEABJ5 ).  I liked it so much though that I decided to make it a stand alone image for my paleoart series.  I particularly like the way the bright color of its skin stands out against the muted tones of the rocks as well as the way it works with the complimentary blue of the sky.  I designed the scene so that this awesome predator was emerge from the shadows to give it more of a sense of menace, similar to the way a shark emerges from the murk of the sea.  

Note: the creation of this image involved the use of purchased products

Tools used: Poser, ZBrush, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!

English Pointer and Little Church by deskridge
English Pointer and Little Church
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…
   
A brown and white English pointer sits on a hillside amongst blades of long green glass.  In the background, a little church sits on a distance hill.  Overhead the deep blue of the sky is broken why puffy white clouds.

This is just a fun work that I put together for a video demonstrating techniques for overlaying text on an image.  It's a video mostly intended for illustrators, but anyone could use these techniques. You can find the video on Youtube here: youtu.be/etCkLpbMiCU

Note: the creation of this image involved the use of purchased products

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP, Photomatix

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

A white dragon perches upon a snow covered tower of rock.  He looks over a mountain range that is locked in a cold perpetual winter.  Stretching his wings in the frigid wind, he gazes into the crystal clear blue sky.  As he exhales his frosty breath drifts away into the air.

For this image, I was wanting give a sense of that super cold air one experiences in the high altitudes of the tallest mountains.  So I used as cold a palette I could come up with. I added the white dragon as a further symbol of cold and frost.

The Wolf of Winter by deskridge
The Wolf of Winter
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

An angry wolf emerges from the blowing snow of a winter storm.  He snarls and exposes his sharp teeth as he looks right at you with a menacing look in his yellow eyes.  Between the dangerous beast, biting cold, savage wind, and blinding snow, this is nature at it's most malevolent.

I created this image as part of a video tutorial demonstrating how I paint snowstorm scenes using the open source image editor GIMP.  You can check out the video on youtube here: youtu.be/2lAexQ0MFG0

Tools used: Daz Studio, LookAtMyHair, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!

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.
