Piece description from the artist
A woman in an aqua colored dress revel has found the perfect spot for whale watching. Under the pink evening skies, she stands on dark brown rocks surrounded by deep water, deep enough for a humpback whale to swim up from and breach. As the whale sends sea spray in every direction, the whale watcher revels in the great splash resulting from the great breaching beast as it arches over her.
I was in the mood to create another aquatic image, but this time I wanted a scene above surface of the water with rocks and lots of splashing…not a gentle sea scape, but a tumultuous artwork full of energy, chaos, and noise. So, whale art was what I decided would do the trick. In this case I made its skin very reflective, more so than would be real, I just thought it looked cool.
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.
