A white egret stands in profile. It wades in the water near some papyrus plants in front of a foggy background. The egret is any of several types of heron. They make for a good subject for art as they have a great "S" shaped neck that looks good in compositions. Plus, their white feathers can really look bright against a dark background and draw the viewers to an artwork. For this work, I was going more for the look of a painting rather than realism.
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!
