Well, I would like to talk about a technic that i found to be very intersting to me. It`s to paint over a photo. As i saw in others posts, the reference is very important to work as a matte painter, so to simplify, a photo is what we are talking about.
Here is my latest work that I did using this technic. I've used basicaly painter program and used photoshop only for image adjusting and add noise filter. I have a wacon tablet that helps a lot too.
So, I wrote a tutorial about this painting but I will translate it to english!!!
Hope you like it!!!
