Three brown rabbits dash across a field lined with dark fir trees. In the early winter, a light snow broken by patches of brown and yellow grass covers the ground, while dense, dark clouds fill the sky. It is a cold and blustery scene, yet, as these three speeding bunnies race past an old oak, they kick up a shower of the loose powder in an exhilarating race.
I have a lot of rabbits living in my yard. Though they are a bit of a pest in the garden, they can be rather fun to watch playing in the grass outside my window. After seeing a bunch scatter recently as I went out to retrieve the mail, I decided to do a rabbit themed artwork with a lot of action in it. I've been doing a lot of fall images lately and have burnt myself out on warm autumn color a bit, so I wanted this one to be much colder in tone. So I dominated this image with greens, blues and cooler browns.
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 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!
