Rhinostrich by christopherburdett Rhinostrich by christopherburdett
Rhinostrich
Mutation Nation ArtOrder Challenge
Digital

This was done for the ArtOrder (www.artorder.blogspot.com) challenge, Mutation Nation. I chose path #1, gene splicing, combining a rhinoceros and a ostrich. This is an additional piece I did for myself that is not eligible for the challenge. Everyone was allowed one submission.

Gene Splicing - Select two disparate critters (a rat and a venus fly trap; a dragonfly and a electric eel; a kangaroo mouse and a grizzly bear), strip out their gene sequence, take 'em into you illicit backroom lab, swirl 'em together in a beaker, and see what you get. The monster you create should be more than a sum of it's parts. In other words, I don't want to see an electric eel with dragonfly wings and head. I want to see a brand new creature that is an actual melding of the two gene sequences, and creates a completely unique and integrated critter. Please create a name for your creation - preferably something tongue-in-cheek like Liger (Lion/Tiger), Electric Fly (Electric Eel/Dragon Fly), etc. and have it in the image.

The ones that work for me.

The brush is just a tool. Yes, some do make some aspects of painting easier, but they are not the reason a painting is successful or fails. It is understanding what you do with the brush and all the other aspects of creating a painting that really matter. But here is a post from my blog about my brushes, it is an older post but it is generally actuate to what I am still doing...

Here is a post about the ImagineFX tutorial I recently did, it includes information about my brushes too, as well as a complete breakdown of how I go about creating one of my paintings with a video of the entire process...
