"The Search Party"
Three achelousauruses search a foggy landscape. The leader calls out into the air, while one of the others peers into the mist, and the third sniffs the ground. Perhaps they have become separated from their herd and are looking for a way back or perhaps a young one has gotten lost in the fog. With Tyrannosauruses inhabiting the same region, this could be a rather dangerous situation for this trio of ceratopsid dinosaurs.
Achelousaurus was a type of centrosaurine ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous in what is now Montana. The species was of the same family of dinosaurs as the more famous Triceratops.
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.
A disclaimer about my paleoart:
When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images and paintings. Scientific accuracy comes second behind artistic expression.
Thanks for looking!
