About this artwork
An American Indian woman stands on a grassy hillside. In one hand she holds a rifle, while, with the other, clasps her fur shawl tight against a chilling wind. In the distance, lighting forks down from a dark menacing storm that rolls across the sky towards the setting sun.
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.
