hey everyone its been awhile,

I recently worked on a short which I designed each shot through concept sketches to final matte paintings. These were done through digital painting, photos and geomtry. I created the city through modeling and texturing in maya. Each painting was painted at 2k wide then was later put into 720x364 format. Thanks everyone!

Im speechless!

One question though. If you modelled the city in Maya, and then imported it to PS for post work, how did you add the magenta light from the sun, to integrate the buildings? Did you simply grab a big fuzzy brush with that colour and paint a bit of haze, or is it something more efficient, coz it looks flawless?!?!

Whoa...all of those are amazing! Good job. I like the city one a lot, it has a lot of nice detail.

I was drawing some concept art to paint and whatnot on Photoshop but I couldnt take the picture(with a camera).It kept coming out where you could hardly see it, or it was too bright in the middle and darker on the outside. Is there some other way to do it? My camera has a lot of different modes and flashes, but I didnt try them all. And, I dont have a scanner either.

Thank you so much everyone, I really appreicate your words of kindness. It means alot.

RiKToR- thank you, I checked out your site, I really liked your " green Space" image. I always enjoy space art.

Tightpantsarecool- Thanks alot man, you may want to try taking off the flash of the camera and then setting the picture underneath a fluorescent light, this way the image won't have those harsh shadows on it if you get between the light and image. Or you could try sketching it with a wacom in PS. Hope this helps man.

Gentle- I'm really glad you like it man, I'm really big on mood in art, it seems to convey a story when its put it to play. Great job by the way on your "ocean-waves" matte, it very good. :D

space-sprayer- THANKS! about the Ariel perspective and intergration that is some what true, but its a combination of color overlays in your layer-styles in photoshop and adding atmosphere.

wib- Thanks alot man! Actually it was modeled and textured in maya, then it was later put into PS with digital paint and photos.

zoki- I appreicate your words man, I see your painting is in the spotlight here, it looks great! :D

sregert- Thank you, The city took me about a couple of days, alot of time was more in modeling and texturing then anything else.

Thanks again guys for taking the time to look at these.
