Somewhere in the wilderness of the American West, a wild mustang stands on a large rock to get a better view of the surrounding landscape as it searches for its lost herd on a foggy winter morning. The horse has a white and dun pinto coloration (rare in wild horses). It's black mane and tail blow wildly in the wind. In the background bare winter trees are revealed, emerging from the morning mists as the breeze carries them away.
Created for the Dazaholics "Knight of Realm" challenge
A would-be dragon slayer, a fearless knight in shining armor courageously faces a Wyvern, a fierce two legged dragon with a poisonous sting at the end of its tail. Standing amongst the ferns that cover the forest floor, the noble warrior faces off with the reptilian monster that inhabits the dark wood. He holds in his hands a massive sword and advances to clearing ahead where the great beast roars its challenge and raises its deadly tail.
Fantasy art has always been one of my favorite genres of art. However, I've often found that artists (including myself) tend to go a bit overboard when it comes to armor. Often it's depicted as so cumbersome that it would break the wearer's spine or collar bone. Also, it tends to often be shown with an enormous amount of elaborate decoration. Though it's true that some suits of armor from the middle ages found in museums are very decorative, these were show pieces, not battlefield armor. For my work here, I wanted to go a bit more realistic with the armor for the knight. It's just plain steel with an undercoat of mail. I rather like the way it turned out. I think it rather helps the knight stand out against the forest.
I made this using digital CGI and painting techniques. The wyvern and knight were posed in Poser then exported to Vue for rendering. The forest scene was made in Vue as well. I used GIMP to do the post production work.
A polar bear charges at you. Its powerful snapping jaws open in a great roar as it barrels towards you kicking up snow in every direction. Meanwhile, snow falls from the dark clouds of the Northern skies in this digitally created Impressionist image of the fiercest carnivore of the Arctic.
I created this image as part of my video series on making 3D digital art. You can watch the video on Youtube here: youtu.be/EgfMbcRKkLQ
I made this using digital CGI and painting techniques. The bear was posed in Daz Studio then exported to Vue for rendering. The snow scene was made in Vue as well. I used GIMP, Photomatix, and Topaz Impression to do the post production work.
In this video, I take you from start to finish on how I created my artwork "Charging Polar Bear" using a variety of digital 3D rendering and painting techniques. Not only do I show you how I made it, but also, I tell you how you can sell print like it online.
In this lesson/tutorial I'll cover some of the following topics:

Charging through the winter comes a massive white buffalo. Determined and angry, it breaths steam from its nostrils as it glares at you. As it thunders towards you across the fir tree strewn hillside, it kicks up a shower of snow.
I've had a few requests for a new white bison themed image as of late. So, I decided that it was time to make a new one.
I made this using digital CGI and painting techniques. The bison was posed in Daz Studio then exported to Vue for rendering. I also used the Daz Studio plugin LookAtMyHair to add the fur. The snowy hillside was made in Vue. I used GIMP and Photomatix to do the post production work.
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.
