Artwork Created Through 2003, a Gallery

I’ve pulled some of the images I have in old, non-compatible HTML galleries buried on zentao.com.  Here is one image and some composites containing artwork created back then:

This was the gallery start image, and, in this, I find it interesting that you can see the kind of work in the compositing itself that I was and am known for by my long-term clients.   Most of the work I do for them is for very high end glossy print production for varying projects, but that’s another topic, so I’ll just leave that there.

2003 gallery beginning image

This was my 2003 gallery’s intro- image

Next up was my favorite dragon. This is a direct recreation of what I said about/above him in the old presentation:

3D digital art is a study unto itself. A young art, it is still very much in the development stage with respect to software and in exploring the depth of potential of the media. 3D art is one of my favorite digital mediums to experiment with, working with light and shadow on objects, building impossible objects, and rendering images that literally jump through your monitor, such as this emerging dragon image which took me over a year to create, working on it intermittently when inspiration or a new technique to try on it struck me as having potential.

Go ahead. Pet his nose. He doesn’t bite…yet.

Dragon Head

By the way, my official name for this image is “Emerging Dragon.” It still is one of my favorites, though I believe the master file is long lost.  Maybe not, but….

If anyone is wondering, it’s a dragon emerging out of the hot mud of a Yellowstone mudpot–a big mudpot.  In your worst nightmare, right?  Not mine.  I’d love it.  He’s a gentle dragon, after all…unless you piss him off.  Then you become ‘crispy’.

The menu on this gallery went…and still goes like this:

Digital Graphic Art Gallery (2003)

The first sections was…

3D art …which is where the dragon head above is located.  Under 3D art came the subsection…

mindscapes, where this composite of my “mindscape” images appeared.

the mindscapes composite of more than several of my 3D artwork

Also under 3D art was a subsection called “urbs.”  This is the composite image of those works:

urbs composite image of various of my art work created back then

The next main section was landscapes.  Here’s that composite of those works:

Composite of landscapes artwork I created back then.

And next came the macabre section:

macabre art work pieces composited

That’s “Dragon Cage” on the left, an abstract depicting the skeletal remains of a dragon, specifically his rib cage, hipbone, and spine.

After macabre came “Spirit Art” and there was a whole series of these.  I only added a few to the composite–my favorites, of course.  I especially love the ghost humming bird, and, of course, “Maraya Remembered” is…well, it holds a very special place in my heart.

The first version of The Deepening, a pathway through the trees is there, too, and “Angel Eye” is another that’s very special for me.

Here’s that composite:

composite of some of my Spirit Art work

I never got around to uploading my religious art, so there was nothing under that section. I always meant to.  Just never made the time to go back.

And the last section was abstracts.  I didn’t make a composite of those, but was trying an odd DHTML script that employed a negative and positive checkerboard where you entered through the checkerboard negative to view the full sized image.  It didn’t work right, if I remember, so it was just thumbnails on a gold and black checkerboard.

Here’s a couple of screenshots of that, one cropped, one a full spread.  (Yes, the page filled the common-resolution browser window top to bottom and was designed to scroll sideways, an experiment in web design that, of course, failed. Nobody wants to scroll sideways.

Effective Art

As a professional graphic artist, when I work on a project, my job is to listen to what the client envisions and attend the client’s goals for that project.  The goal is usually common: get the target market’s attention, generate interest for the product, service, message, or entity that is the project’s focus.

The client’s goal usually falls into one of two or three categories, and, yes, sometimes several simultaneously:

  • FOLLOW: look a lot like something successful already on the market in order to siphon as much of the desired reward (money or interest) as possible from a clone;
  • COUNTER: provide an alternative to something successful, providing contrast, again to siphon reward;
  • LEAD: present something completely new and different.

Creating the artwork and design to effectively meet any of those goals is the graphic artist’s job…which is identical to the client’s–to fulfill a desire or a need…which is what most things boil down to in this life. 😀
