Default Peter Pan - 03-08-2005, 10:39 PM

Due to popular demand (Smooth!) here's a matte painting I did
for "Peter Pan". Wild stuff. Not really my scene, but it was an
interesting challenge. The goal was to create expansive exterior
vistas that matched with carefully lit interior sets that made no
attempt at all to recreate realistic sunlight. I think ultimately this
film had the same challenges as "The Wizard of Oz".

wooohoo! Nice.
Thanks Rick!
As soon as I get a decent computer to be able to finish some of my mattes I was thinking of creating some stuff for a "Wizard of Oz" remake. I know it's a classic. But I think it can be re-vived with the right people and the right touch. Just something I'd like to do.
As for what was said in previous posts...despite it's "no
attempt at all to recreate realistic sunlight"...it still has my nieces and newphew at awe when they see it...OVER AND OVER again. To be able to escape reality for an hour and forget the world in which we live in...is worth it. Thanks.

p.s. i'd like to hear your thoughts on the other post of mine in which Sylvain Despretz's interview was based on. I'm passionate about matte painting and fine art and can bring good things to the table..but if it's useless based on this factor of hollywood being so difficult.Then am I wasting my time? Please tell me theres hope.

Nice work,
You should have worked on King Kong. (It has similar locations)

It would be great to see how it turned out in the final composition.

Thanks for the comments. This is from the sequence
when the children first arrive in Neverland with Peter.
Captain Hook fires a cannonball at the kids in the clouds.
Wendy's brothers end up hanging onto a shredded cloud
before they fall, crash down through the jungle canopy
and splash down in this grotto.

Very nice Rick.
I really liked the movie too. I thought it was appropriately stylized. I would be curious to see what variety of elements you were working with. Thanks for posting.

Here's a couple closeup shots. The painting is 4500 pixels
wide so these details get crunched down when composited.

Great work Rick. Nice to see an example of a painting with vibrant colours given the discussion we had on tones the other day. I've not actually seen this film, is it decent?
