Racing Pig



My original idea for this particular artwork was to have a horse galloping across a field, but it just didn’t pop. Then, I remembered going to one of the local orchards here in north Georgia during the apple picking season. The orchard had all sorts of events going on. One of them was a pig race. So I had the idea of replacing the running horse with a running pig. The scene almost immediately brought a smile to my face. So this became the latest in my pig art series.

The pig was posed in Poser 6 then was imported into Vue 9.5 where the rest of the scene was constructed. Final rendering was done in Vue as well. Render time was about 24 hours on an Intel I5 2.9GHz with 8 GB of RAM. Post production was done using GIMP and was mostly done to fix up the pigs fur and adjust colors.
