Serenading the Fall by deskridge
Serenading the Fall
"Serenading The Fall"

Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

A woman in a light brown, floral-patterned dress sits on some large grey boulders on the banks at a bend in a river playing a lute.  It's autumn and the trees are alive will bright fall colors: red, yellow, and orange. These are reflected in the waters of the wide lazy river.  Yet it is still early enough in the season that the grass beneath the flame colored trees is still a vibrant green.  Overhead, thick puffy clouds drive in a deep blue sky.

The musician strums her lute as she plays a gentle tune to reflect the mood of the warm, lazy autumn day.

The autumn is my favorite time of year.  I have created a lot of artworks with a fall environment, but for this one I wanted much more intense colors and a crisp.  So, I used a much cleaner atmosphere than my usual somewhat misty backgrounds.

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

A small blue and purple feathered microraptor sits on a fallen tree in a dense Cretaceous era forest.  It looks to the left to show its head in profile as is perches on the log.  Its tail curves slightly in the same direction, show off its bright plumage.  The twisted trunk of the down tree is covered with moss and shelf fungus.  Ferns carpet the primeval forest floor as rays of sunlight cut through the thick green canopy above.

The microraptor was one of the smallest of dinosaurs.  It was covered in feathers had wings on both it's arms and legs.  It is one of the most commonly found fossils.

I decided to go a little wild with the coloring of this little dino.  Originally, I had him in various shades of brown, but he didn't seem eye catching enough.  So, I decided blue and purple would really make this fella stand out.  After all, many birds have bright and intricate feather patterns, why couldn't a prehistoric cousin not have the same?

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.

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.

Your renders look so realistic, do you use a biased render engine?
