Happy River Valley
Digital Art - Digital 3d Rendering/cgi
The first thing that ever really got me interested in art was show The Joy of Painting on PBS hosted by Bob Ross. Each show, he would produce a rather fantastic looking landscape in under thirty minutes. And, of course, all his mountains, trees, and streams were "Happy". His paintings did tend towards a similar design though: A blue sky with happy clouds, a majestic snowy mountain, tree covered hills in the midground, then a lighter sprinkling of trees in the foreground, and there was usually a pond or river.
So I've been practicing a new technique for mountains, and decided to create a Bob Ross inspired scene while doing so. I skipped the clouds though as I through the clear blue sky made the mountain stand out better.
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!
