Default Fully 3d landscape from painting? - 05-07-2009, 01:06 PM

Hello there- Lot's of good info here but I haven't been able to find anything about this subject. Sorry if it's already been addressed. Also, I don't know enough about camera mapping techniques or other matte painting techniques to know which ones to try...

Basically I want to take a classic landscape painting- Lake Tahoe by Albert Bierstad for example- and translate it as close as possible into 3d. What would the workflow be like? What 2.5D matte painting techniques apply? How do you figure out the distances between the elements? When given a concept with hardly any straight lines, how do figure out perspective? How much is just "eyeballing"?

Thanks for any advice!
