A bald eagle swoops out of the sky and strikes at a reddish brown cobra atop a large grey rock. With one talon, the bird grasps the snake’s middle, while it uses the other to stave off the deadly fangs. Rays of the dawn sun strike the clouds to give them a brilliant edge and create an energetic background to the great raptor as it struggles with the venomous serpent. Behind the struggling creatures, giant pines and fir trees rise into the sky and create a dark backdrop as morning mists rise from the forest floor. 

As the cobra and bald eagle inhabit different continents, this is not a very likely scenario, but I suppose one could come up with a story where such a fight might happen. Originally, I had the eagle struggling with a rattlesnake, but I decided the that cobra with its hood open just looked better in the composition. So I used it instead.

The Staring Contest

I just published my latest wolf art.  Entitled “The Staring Contest“, it features a trio of wolves trying to make the viewer feel a bit uncomfortable with their intense gaze.

This is the latest addition to my wolf art series.  It was my New Years resolution to add a lot more works to that particular series this year and this is the second one so far.  If you’re curios, the first was “Timber Wolf“.

I created this using a variety of digital art tools, but primarily this one is about Topaz Impression which is what I used to give this the Impressionist stylized look.
 
It you want to know what Topaz Impression is, check out my overview of it on my blog: http://fineartbydaniel.com/2017/12/22/topaz-impression/
 
There’s plenty of other digital tools involved as well.  You can check out my resource list here: http://fineartbydaniel.com/resources/

A Storm of Mammoths

Winter is around the corner, and I wanted to post some art to get me in the mood. This one, a bit of Mammoth Art, is from my paleoart series.  I have Mammoths heralding the coming of the cold season. The first dusting of snow has fallen and a rabbit has ventured out to see what all the commotion is about. 

Most animals have a collective noun that names a group of them. For instance, a group of crows is called a murder, a group of chickens is called a brood, cats…a clowder, geese…a gaggle, etc.. However, there doesn’t appear to be a collective noun for mammoths. I guess being extinct deprives them of that. Well, I’ve decided that I like the word “storm” for a group of Mammoths, at least for this particular artwork. 

This artwork was created digitally using 3D art applications as well as painting applications.
