Hi all,

Here is a matte that I did for projection in Maya. I think I am close to being done but let me know what you think.


here is a quicktime of the camera move for it.

Looks really nice, but it doesn't "feel" like night. It "feels" more like a very dark, stormy afternoon.

Thanks Jay. I wonder if that is because of the sky or the levels in between the buildings?

Thanks again

I think you're right, Kevin. It lacks the contrast that it would have if it were "dark" outside.

Nice job!

Perhaps I would darken the sky a bit and the upper parts of the buildings. I also thing that the green light is too strong and that there shouldn't be so much reflected light on the side walls.

Keep up the good work.

I think you can fix colors and also format-composition

i like the piece but agree with the rest. I think with night pieces you need lights to justify what you see...for instence you have that light above the door so you can see that area.... now if you darkened the sky and building levels just lighten the areas you place street or building lights... hope that makes sense.
