..............................:buymyprints:..............................

Out of the mists of time comes megaloceros giganteus, commonly called the Irish Elk. He stands in deep grass on a foggy hillside. His huge antlers span over half the width of the image as he looks out of the past right at you.

Tools used to construct the scene: zbrush, and vue. Final rendering was done in Vue 9 and took about 8 hours on an Intel I5 2.8 GHz with 8 GB of RAM. Post production was done in GIMP.

Amazing! I love the foggy mist, and your elk is magnificent! I can only imagine a creature like this I wish I could pop into a time bubble just to go back in time to see our furry friends.

Am I dreaming or is it smiling at us? ;-)

Actually, if you look closely, especially at the pigs, I often give my animals a hint of a smile.
