View Full Version : Time to start learning projections!

Hey everyone!

I have been pretty busy over the last while and havent really been posting , but I am going to get back at posting up my stuff and commenting on others.

I decided that it is time for me to start learning projection maps. I have been putting it off for a long while now. I wanted to make sure that my matte painting skills have emproved enough (one thing at a time i guess).

So to start doing projections I decided that I would have a 100% nature scene with no visible architecture. Just so that I dont get overwhelmed once I start. So I came up with this concept a few nights ago as a test.


And then I did a projection onto the concept , just to test it out.

youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYILgCiu6bY)

Today I started working on the final shot. It will not be 100% similar to the concept but the concepts main purpose was just for testing.

Here is the matte painting so far.


Reference images:


To create the mountain I would crop little sections of that middle reference image and then do some paint over to make them look like one formation aswell to make it look like it is in the right perspective to the camera. If anyone whats to know more about the process just drop me a line in here and I can post up some more images and explain my process with a bit more detail.

Any crits/comments are most welcome. I am still in the learning process so any advise would come in handy.
