Default HOW TO PAINT LANDSCAPE - 03-28-2007, 03:04 AM

Hi,
is there any tutorial about digital painting of Landscapes, hills, mountains or rocks (photoshop). I founded some on www.cgarena.com but it's not look real and don'n have many details which makes matte painting cool. Thanks for any help.

Go with Dylan Cole's "Introduction to Landscape Matte painting" :) Great DVD. You can watch short samples directly over at thegnomonworkshop.com :)

Any basic painting book would do. The same rules of light and colour apply to pixels as well as oils..

Yep, if you are good at watercolour, acrylic or oils then you got a good headstart against people who are not familiar with any other art medium :)
I also highly recommend Dylan Coles dvds, I have them all and they are top notch! Never watched any dvd so many times! Good recommendation xdreamer!

Nick

Dylan Cole's Introduction to Landscape Matte Painting is Great. Thank you.

It think the best way to do great matte painting is still try after try, image after image

Yeah I agree I just rewatched that DVD a few hours ago and you can learn loads of stuff from it.

In time it will become second nature when you do your digital paintings sketches...you just ' Know ' where to put those colors.

But I'm a guy who preaches references...I'm not saying to become a slave to your references but if you don't know how to ...paint a winter scene in the mountains for exemple...well by all means take the time to search some good references and learn from it.

Besides...you're building a reference library at the same time so it can't hurt.:)

In the end you just have to practice, practice, practice :)
