Archer on Horseback

Piece description from the artist

An American Indian of the western plains draws his bow as his horse gallops over hills kicking up a spray of snow.

The Native American man wears deer hide leggings, beaded moccasins, a hair pipe breastplate and a shoulder pouch. He is also covered in face and body paint. Perhaps he is in battle or just hunting.

The horse is a pinto coated mustang. Its dark mane and tail blow in the wind as it carries its rider through the wilderness of the American west.

This is the latest in my series depicting Native Americans of the Wild West.

To make this image I used a variety of digital art techniques including CGI, digital sculpting, and digital painting.

About Daniel Eskridge

Marietta, GA

Daniel is a forty-something living in the Metro-Atlanta area, and he is one of the few people who was actually born and raised there. He is also married and has two sons and a daughter. By day, he works as software engineer at a small company. By night he is an artist producing realist works depicting scenes of American wildlife, farm animals, fantasy scenes, extinct animals, and images of the "American Wild West":

Daniel has dual degrees in computer science and fine art from the University of Georgia. Given his education, it would seem only natural for him to combine the two by producing art using a computer. Daniel practices a new form of art called "3D Rendering":, a form of virtual sculpting with a computer. This form of art is utilized by film studios for special effects as well as animated movies, but it can be used to make stills as well. "Check out this video of Daniel creating a 3D rendering!":

Daniel’s interest in art began when he was young. As a fan of science fiction and fantasy novels, he became particularly interested in the works of the illustrators that appeared on the covers, such as "Frank Frazetta": and "Michael Whelan": In college, he discovered the work of the "French Realists":, the "Pre-Raphaelites":, and the "Hudson River School":, which further influenced him and put his work on a course where nature was the dominant theme.
