The Farmer's Daughter by deskridge The Farmer's Daughter by deskridge
Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…

This is the farmer's daughter with her pet goat. She's prettier than any girl in her town. Her father's farm is the most successful for miles, even producing plentiful crops in times of drought. When she grows jealous of someone, they grow sick and die. Good things always seem to happen for the, but, for all her good fortune, she pays a price.

Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Sculptris (for the tree), Zbrush (for the fence), Poser, Vue, GIMP

"Good things always seem to happen for the, but, for all her good fortune, she pays a price."

. . . I'm afraid I don't quite understand what your saying. You're saying that when she is doing well, she also suffers? :/ (Good job btw on your work :D)

Thanks, I'm glad you like the work. There is a darker undertone to this work if you look closer and know a bit about symbolism (particularly goats).

The goat does symbolize sin and the Devil, so...

This is a rather decently composed shot and the characters and background seems to be high quality models and textures.

Wow, talk about some damned good CG skills. Well-deserved DD. You know what, though, you really should add noise to the finished render (really low opacity on a top layer set to Overlay works). This washes-out from the viewer's eyes that "this was done on a computer program" feel - you know those comments you occasionally get about how somebody 'doesn't like 3D art because the models always look' <insert complaint>, noise *kills* that. It gives a analog/painterly feel to the finished render. Check out the pages of ImagineFX, Fantasy Artist, or any of the top-shelf digital artists: They all swear by adding noise. I didn't believe it at first, but then I started doing it and it makes a huge difference.

My first thought when I saw this: Her dress looks much too big for her.... maybe it belonged to her mother, and her mother's dead. :(

Then I read the comments and saw wow, looks like she's got a pretty interesting history already!

Very pretty portrait. :clap:

Goat is pretty well done, though I might recommend a bit more meat on the thigh and less on the hips. Also the tail in a more upright position. Otherwise this picture is excellent with such delicious detail!
