Kokopelli statue

Kokopelli Statue

Piece description from the artist

A digitally created image of what a statue of Kokopelli might look like: a statue of Kokopelli, carved from grey stone, sits on a pile of boulders on a hilltop in the wilderness of the American West.

Kokopelli is a fertility deity from American Indian cultures of the Southwest. He is possibly based upon a real type of person, a kind of traveling merchant, storyteller, and overall entertainer, a Native American equivalent to a European bard, troubadour, or minstrel.

I created this virtual sculpture several years ago for a scene with a more Southwestern environment (https://daniel-eskridge.pixels.com/featured/kokopelli-sunset-daniel-eskridge.html). I wanted to use it again in a scene with more natural colors: blue sky, green trees, etc.

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":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Frontier.

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":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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!":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvoSvRhYPr4

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":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Frazetta and "Michael Whelan":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Whelan. In college, he discovered the work of the "French Realists":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Realism_(arts), the "Pre-Raphaelites":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre-Raphaelite_Brotherhood, and the "Hudson River School":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudson_River_School, which further influenced him and put his work on a course where nature was the dominant theme.
