"Clash of The Ice Age Beasts"
------Artists Proof Available-------
The hand signed Final Artist Proof for "Clash of the Ice Age Beasts" is available for $2900. The proof is a 30" x 18.75" x 1.5" print on gallery wrapped canvas with black sides, signed by me, Daniel Eskridge, the artist, on the front side, bottom right corner where it will be visible to viewers.
What is a Final Artist Proof? To explain: Since I create my art digitally, there is no "original"; however, when publishing an image to my on-line print gallery, I sometimes like to see a print for myself to check that the image looks good on canvas. This proof is the ONLY hand signed hard copy of any given work, and likely the only print of that work ever in my direct possession.
Two of the most fearsome creatures of ice age Europe are having it out. A rogue male cave lion (panthera leo spelaea) has wandered too close to a grazing woolly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis). Much like what happens when the modern rhinoceros and lion cross paths, a confrontation occurs. Kicking up snow and rocks, the rhino charges the lion while the great cat attempts to circle behind the thundering behemoth. It's a prehistoric battle between two of the mightiest Pleistocene animals.
This image is part of my paleoart series. I liked it so much that I made it my new cover image for my Facebook page.
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.
