Default From scenic painting to matte painting - 11-06-2004, 04:34 PM

Hi guys,

The citiscape is a selfpromotional piece, which helped me to get matte painting work. It's an aerial shot of a city, overpainted in Photoshop.

I've also included a pic of a painted landscape (vinyl) for the TV-series Roswell, which I painted back in the days, when I worked as scenic artist. I learned valuable lessons there on how to paint architecture and landscapes. The devil is in the details, and in traditional scenic painting, the details are big.

This is a nice job,
Lots of details and yet photo realistic.
Looking forward to see more.

Thanks Max

I LOVED painting scenic backings (back in the day). I did a lot
of backings for miniature sets. I only did one BIG one (30' high
by 240' wide) and didn't like that very much. I'm afraid of
heights! :-) Doing high quality scenic backings is a GREAT
preparation for doing matte paintings. A good scenic backing
sits there and just looks REAL.

VERY impressive stuff!

Thanks Emrah!

I checked out your "invasion of Istanbul" on cgtalk. Very nice and dynamic!

I will post some new paintings soon. It's hard to do anything while working overtime on a movie and with a 4 months old son (the greatest!)
