Mammoth in a Blizzard

Prints: daniel-eskridge.artistwebsites…    

Out of the swirling snow trudges a massive hairy beast.  The woolly mammoth is one of the best known of the Pleistocene megafauna.  He's also one of my favorite subjects for paleoart.

This is actually an image I made many years ago using a rather old model for the mammoth and armed with much less knowledge about 3D rendering.  I found it while cleaning up my harddrive and decided to see what I could do with it.  I decided to give it an expressionist treatment using some digital painting techniques to add lot's of fog, haze, snow, etc.

Thanks for looking!

The snow effect looks really cool.  Gives an illusion of movement of the mammoth and adds a lot of dimension.
