The Pig and the Hare by deskridge The Pig and the Hare by deskridge
Prints are available through my website here: [link]

When I was in college a fellow artist painted a picture of a pig with a crow sitting on its back. The image stuck with me and, while thinking about it the other day, I decided to give a similar image a try using 3d rendering. I didnít really like the result but I rather like the farmyard environment I had made for the background. So I changed the image around a bit, added a rabbit, and came up with this.

This image is for the A Picture Paints 1000 Words contest: [link]

Note: This image uses purchased content. The animals were posed using Poser 6 then imported into Vue 9 where I build the rest of the scene. Final rendering was done in Vue 9 and took about 48 hours on an intel i5 2.8 GHz with 8 GB of RAM. Post production was done in GIMP.

Yea! He has a new suit! And some new little friends as well. hehe How cute is that! Just love the barnyard atmosphere you have created with the tractor in the background and the wheat looks so realistic. The lighting is so perfect and Mr. Piggy looks awesome. hehe I like this new coat he is wearing. A wee christmas prezzie perhaps? ;P I like the new idea you have come up with and you have perfectly executed it. Fantastic image! These always bring such a big smile to my face! Have a great week! :iconkabecat:

Actually, the dark coat comes with the model, this is just the fist scene that I've had where it looked like the right one to use. It most other scenes I've tried it in, the big just becomes a big dark mass.

Your most welcome! It looks perfect in this scene! He is such a little cutie, I think he would look good in any suit. hehe I really liked the barnyard atmosphere in this one. It reminds me how I think the atmosphere in Charlotte's Web would appear. Excellent job my freind! :iconifeelfluffyplz:

'Never' is a strong word. If you enter, you at least have a chance. The funny thing about art is that you never know what people are going to like. The only way you are sure to never win is to never enter.

never. unless you don't enter the contest :D
when I watch your arts, my breath is 'cut'. really.
I may count on my fingers the number of artist who could me the same thing. and in one single hand.

Yay!!! I ordered greeting cards again... I love your whole shop... I want prints, but I'm caregiver for my mother right now and I don't want to get things like that since I'm living in her house and everything is just a big question mark as far as where I'll be whenever. :D

Wow! Thank you very much! I was wondering if that sale was you. Let me know what the quality is like. One of the reasons I like FAA is there selection of papers for fine art prints, but I don't know much about their greeting cards.

Wow.. I'd been to your site.. and never realized that it was part of anything else.. That's amazing.. I'm checking it out for myself.. Hehe... I love the selection of paper there.. Another thing I love that has nothing to do with art.. is that I got a warning that they don't send to PO boxes when I ordered.. You have no idea how many sites don't do that and then whatever I ordered gets sent back...

It was so hard not buying a canvas of this pig... really hard... =(

I can see how it would really get crazy trying to sell at six different sites.. lol.. I have a cafepress account which does get sales... mostly on "stuff." I never expected that art prints would sell there very well, but I've sold a lot of magnets and t-shirts.. and cards. The thing I hate about that place now is that if anything is sold through the marketplace, the seller gets a set 10% amount of the purchase... They implemented that a few years ago and ticked most of us off... I'll continue selling here, because its easy enough to set up the print while uploading, but I don't make many sales at all at dA...

I really like the truly professional look of FAA. The mere name of this site likely scares a lot of buyers off.. haha

Actually, I did have a stand alone site up until a few weeks ago. It was one of the ones I cut. It was actually the hardest one of all to maintain.

You might try zazzle for selling stuff. I still use it to sell a few t-shirts and beer steins every once in a while. It's not the most user friendly interface, but you can set your own royalty rate.

It's a print now: [link]

I made the decision to only sell prints from one site. It was getting to be too much work to upload to six different sites and set all the prices so they matched from one site to another. I went with my FineArtAmerica account. Of all the print on demand sites, I like them the best.

That's a good decision.. :D The card quality of the ones from deviantart is very good though, I can't remember whether I told you or not.. Now I'll have two different pig themed cards to choose from...
