That is a great shot, Chris. I really like it. Everything is under control. So good ! :shock:
Every time I see such a work I wonder how much time does it take, I mean for the matte painter only ? :?:

I bought the DVD just to enjoy the beautiful digital work. Ridley knows his business and has made some really good choices on the CGI. I think this movie is somehow a fulfilled VFX film: Not too much and very subtle too. Thanks for sharing.

Good stuff Chris! Nicely done!

So you moved to LA? What studio did you land at? Blitzzzurd? Too bad you just moved ... we really could use some help down here in NZ ;)

Thanks again everyone!

Smooth: Indeed, this should be interesting!

Herve: I believe this one took about a month (on and off) till everyone was happy.

Valentin: Yeah Ridley is a great artist with the pen as well, very visual and specific. He does lots of little sketches along the way (Ridleygrams) which helps to minimize the guesswork.

Loki: Thanks Peter, awesome to hear from you! Yep, Blizzard it is. I realize you guys are superbusy over in NZ at the moment- that's always a good thing with much to be anticipated! Is Paul's leaving for England causing a bit of a crunch? Please give my regards to him and Rachael Haupt... hope all is well!
