Hunting In The Age Gene Splicing
Digital Art - Digital 3d Rendering/cgi
At dawn, in a flat, marshy wetland, a hunter has unleashed his hunting pack. It includes two dogs: one a pointer with a white coat and brown spots, the other an American foxhound with a black and brown coat. Between them stands the more unusual member of the pack: a velociraptor. In the skies above, an ornithocheirus chases a flock of seagulls among the fiery clouds. Obviously, this is a situation cannot happen today, but with advances in genetic engineering, perhaps it will one day be possible.
I've always like looking at hunting dog paintings. Growing up in Georgia where the hunting culture is strong, I've seen quite a few such works hanging in homes. I've always found them to be a rather pleasant intersection of landscape painting and pet portraiture. This work, of course, was inspired by such paintings, yet I still had to add my own twist.
