View Full Version : northern wasteland walkthrough

After wrapping up this matte - which I did mainly as a lighting and colouring exercise - I wrote a few words about the stages I'd saved out as I was doing it, and also did a flash movie step-through of the same.

Thanx plaf! I like this article a lot. and I have to say that flash break down is one of the best i have ever seen! Using the arrow keys to navigate through is a stroke of genius. I can't wait to use this feature on a demo reel dvd.
Slick very Slick

I agree, The Flash version is great.

I think those who spend time to create Tutorials, or Step by Step guides, are showing their confident in their work. And they will be successful.

Also itís good to keep the Step by Step of a project. Sometimes I do something and then I forget how did I do that and I have to re-experience that challenge again.

Another advantage of keeping all the steps is the fact that you can always go back and modify them. Which will make the VFX supervisor happy.

Thanks to those who share their works and I hope to see more contribution like this.

thanks Plaf for sharing,

Your painting looks great, and your brake down was really helpfull to me.

One question: did you paint in that resolution that your final image is?

I have started to paint again, so these kind of step by step things are more than wellcome!Maybe I post something here someday.

Glad to hear that people like this.

Juha : yeah, I pretty much just went with the resolution of my source photograph (2048 pixels wide, I cropped it a little if i remember correctly)

Maryam : Thanks. I like to share - it hopefully helps others, and it helps me.
