Digital Art - Digital 3d Rendering/cgi
A brown and white English pointer leaps off an old wooden dock into a small tree-lined lake.
This one is actually a bit of a re-do of an earlier work of mine in which there was a human throwing something, but I though that the dog alone would also make for a good work.
This image was inspired by something I saw last summer. My family and I went to see something called DockDogs, which bills itself as the world's largest canine aquatics competition. Essentially, it was a long jump contest for dogs. The owner or trainer would throw a ball or some similar dog toy across a pool and their dog would dash down a runway and leap in after it. I'd never heard of such a thing before seeing it. It was rather fun to watch. Now whenever we see some sort of canine competition in the TV lineup, we give it a look-see.
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!
