Winter Dragon by Daniel Eskridge
For this contest, the focus was on fantasy art creatures in the snow. It is December now, after all. The first, second and third place winners were all chosen by Fine Art America members. The last three honorable mentions were chosen by the administrator of the group.
Of his Winter Dragon, Daniel Eskridge had this to say:
For this image, I was wanting give a sense of that super cold air one experiences in the high altitudes of the tallest mountains. So I used as cold a palette I could come up with. I added the white dragon as a further symbol of cold and frost.
Thanks for looking!
Daniel Eskridge has academic training in both computer science and fine art. This is part of his story:
By day, I am a senior software engineer. But, by night I am a 3D render artist. I have dual degrees from the University of Georgia, one in Computer Science, the other in Fine Art. So, it seems only natural that I attempt to combine the two by producing art using a computer.
