Fox in the Deep Forest by deskridge
Fox in the Deep Forest
Prints: DanielEskrdige.com/featured/fo…

In the deep woods, a red fox stands on the shores of a pond.  So thick are the trees that the only a few rays of light penetrate the canopy to reach the forest floor.  A couple of these highlight the face of the elusive trickster as he looks up from the water to stare back at you.

I've always thought that foxes are a nice subject for art as their fur color contrasts nicely with the greenery of their environment.  I've made a few images before featuring foxes, but this is the first to feature a new model which is specially designed to use rendered fur (rather than fur painted in post production).  So far, I rather like it.

I created this image using digital techniques.  The bulk of the scene was created using CGI, but some painting was done to finish it.

In my last blog article, I talked all about the basic way of posting images to your Facebook Fan Page. That straight forward method was how I started with posting my art on Facebook.

The trouble was that, though a lot of people liked, commented on, and shared my images, not many people clicked through to my print gallery. Some people were just interested in looking at the picture, and, since the basic method allows them to see the whole image, they had no reason for further action. Other people just didn’t see that tiny text link in the description.

The solution I discovered was the “Link Share” post. This is the subject of my latest blog article. If you're interested, check it out: introvertartist.com/link-share…

Warriors Of The Plains by deskridge
Warriors Of The Plains
Warriors of the Plains

An American Indian brave holds his spear aloft as he rides his war horse over a grassy hill.  Both the Native American man and the pinto coated mustang are warriors and wear brightly colored war paint.  The man and his spear are both decorated with eagle feathers to represent courage, strength, and freedom.  The horse also wears elaborate trappings. The heroic pair kick up a shower of rock and dust as they charge through the dark morning beneath cloud filled skies which threaten a stormy day.

As an artist, I very much enjoy creating scenes filled with action and movement, and, being from the U.S., I like subjects that are distinctly American.  So, I find that scenes of Native American warriors usually wind up as my favorites in my gallery.  "Warriors of the Plains" is no exception.

To create this artwork, I used digital art techniques:  The horse and rider were posed in Poser 10 then imported into Vue 2015 where the rest of the scene was constructed.  Final rendering was also done in Vue.  Next, I used GIMP to do some additional painting work. Finally, I used Topaz Adjust to enhance the colors.

My latests video is out :)



Like this? Check out my blog: IntrovertArtist.com

In this video I show you how to create an aquatic scene depicting a sperm whale.  Starting with Sculptris, the whale model is sculpted and painted.  In Blender, it is rigged and posed. Finally, in Vue, an underwater scene is constructed to feature the whale model.  At the end, I'll show you how you can upload art to FineArtAmerica and make it available for sale.

Styracosaurus by deskridge

Styracosaurus

Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

I've always loved paleoart.  When it comes to dinosaurs, I've lately been on a theropod kick.  I was getting a little bored with t-rexes and allosaurs though, so I decided to switch gears a bit.  After doing a bit of browsing on the net, I came across styracosaurus.  With its wild head gear, I thought it would make for some great art.  So, I sculpted a new styracosaurus model and gave it a pretty elaborate coloring to match it's interesting head. This is my first artwork to feature my new model.

The name styracosaurus means "spiked lizard".  This dinosaur was a large ceratopsian from the Cretaceous period.  A distant cousin of the more well known Triceratops, this massive three ton creature sported four to six horns protruding from its frill and a single two foot long horn from its nose.

I created this work using digital techniques.  The dinosaur was sculpted using Scuptris, textured in ZBrush, Rigged and posed in Blender3d, then exported to Vue where the rest of the scene was constructed and rendered.  Gimp was used for post production. I also used Topaz Adjust to do some minor color enhancement.

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.
