Digital Art - Digital 3d Rendering/cgi
An American Indian warrior stands upon a rocky cliff side. On his arm sits his best friend, a red-tailed hawk. The man wears dark brown and red war paint on his face, arms, and bare chest and carries as tomahawk. Both he and the hawk look across the forested valley dominated by an ominous, jagged, snow peaked mountain.
To many Native Americans, hawks are a powerful spiritual symbol, though, the meaning does vary from tribe to tribe. To some, they offer protection from evil spirits and represent the elements of storms, to others the represent speed, dedication, and good vision. The feathers of a Red Tailed hawk are often considered sacred and are used in ceremonies much like eagle feathers. Possession of such feathers is subject to the Eagle Feather law.
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!
