It's the middle of winter and you find yourself in a cold snowy forest. Dense fog obscures the trees and hides the trail. Suddenly a great beast, the Spirit of Winter, appears before you. He is a massive brown American buffalo that glares at you angrily gives a steamy snort. His stance is tense and he is ready to charge.
An image for what is turning out to be a rather harsh winter. Even here in the American South, we've had record cold. So I decided to give this season a sort of mascot. A huge angry bison that is mean and menacing.
About how I create my artwork:
Rather than traditional forms of art such as painting or photography, I use a computer to create my images. It's called 3D Rendering and works like so: I make a scene by sculpting and arranging digital models in a virtual 3D space. After stipulating lighting and atmospheric effects, I have the computer create a simulated environment from which I take a virtual snap shot of the scene. Then, using image editing software and something more akin to traditional painting techniques (via a Wacom tablet), I go over the work adjusting colors, adding brushwork, painting in details, etc. to produce the final image. Software I use includes: Sculptris, ZBrush, Blender3d, Vue, Daz Studio, and GIMP.
Thanks for looking!
