Thanks for all the feedback everyone, I really appreciate it. Over break I worked on a few new mattes. I've always wanted to do some sort of "destroyed city" matte and finally got around to trying my hand at it. I'm uploading these from DA but the plates can be viewed in the matte painting section on my website.





Thanks for looking,

Jadrien

nice work man, I really like the photo-realism you have able to get in the last piece.

Thanks Rahul, really appreciate it. Here's another one I've been working on a lot this past week, a fictionalized Roman city with a destroyed aqueduct.



And the plate:



I'm trying to really push my digital matte painting skill-set this year, so I'll continue posting to this thread rather than making a new thread every week or so. I have a few new day-for-night mattes under way and I'll post those here as well.

Anyway, thanks for looking.

Cool stuff in here as always! Your handling of colour feels very photorealistic, and the day for night shots show you have thought properly about exposure and lighting from interiors onto the exterior environment. I do feel like the hard sunlit shadows are giving away your second day for night a little, especially as you have moved the position of the moon from where the sun was in the plate. I think it would be nice to see some subtle lighting from the moon on those rooftops and remove the really hard sunlight that remains. Still, looks convincing on the whole!

The sketches look good too, good to see you doing both! I think it may benefit you to loosen your style up a little. Looking at these sketches, they all have pretty much identical, pretty symetrical compositions. Loosening up might help you arrive at some more interesting ideas, and you can just render up your focal point a little more tightly to finish up.

Basically though, this is all really nice work, look forward to seeing more!

Hey thanks you guys, I appreciate the feedback. And thank you for the good advice Nick -- I remember adding that moon as somewhat of an afterthought, I'll have to head back in and do some reworking. Loosening up with my brush strokes has really been a focus of mine, I'm still struggling away haha. I think it's mostly a confidence issue for me at this point (or at least I believe it is) which might be why my brush strokes aren't as bold and, er, confident as would be conducive to create stronger images. I'll keep at it with your advice in mind of course, and thanks again, appreciate it!

*EDIT: Just a small update, I went back into the lower day-for-night up above and adjusted those rooftops.
