Spirit of the blizzard

Spirit of the Blizzard

Piece description from the artist

A white wolf stands on dark rocks. This predator of the North American wilderness gazes at you. A blizzard has rolled in and snow whips out of the dark night sky. It's as if the animal has summoned the winter storm out of the arctic. It is the wind that howls or are more wolves near by.

White Wolves, also known as arctic wolves or Melville Island wolves are a subspecies of gray wolf that live in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. They are a bit smaller than the typical gray wolf.

I've created many images with wolves and even several featuring white ones, but I think this is my best image so far to feature a white wolf. Also, a bit unusual for me, this is one of my rare night scenes. However, I didn't want it too dark, so I gave the impression that there is light in the background as if there is some human settlement reflecting light off the low clouds.

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.
