Trex In The Forest
Digital Art - Digital 3d Rendering/cgi
A Tyrannosaurus Rex stalks by a small stream in a dense Cretaceous forest. Ferns carpet the ground and mist dances around the tall straight trunks of fir trees. A ray of sunlight breaks through the canopy and illuminates the brown striped T-Rex as he sounds a great roar.
Just because I was in the mood to make a big scary dinosaur artwork ;)
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!
