Default matte painting replicas - 08-27-2013, 04:28 PM

I know that site is devoted to digital painting but I miss traditional matte painting so much I have started to paint my own series of matte replicas.

Iím painting on Plexiglas surface instead of glass. It is cheaper and least dangerous that glass.

The first one Iím showing you is from King Kong (1933) the Skull island matte painting. The original one by Mario Larrinaga.


The second replica is from Superman 1978. The original painting was by Les Bowie I think, maybe with the help of Ray Caple.

I hope you like it.






Best regards.

Domingo

Brilliant idea. Most fine art students spend a lot of time copying the masters to learn their craft. I think it would beneficial for us to do this from time to time, even if its just on the computer rather then plexi-glass. Good work.

I’ve been busy with some other projects but the second matte painting replica from King Kong (33) is done. The log sequence painting.
It was originally made as a combination of miniature and glass shot, but I have done it as a full painting.

I hope you like it.

Nice job, it's a really close match. Did you make it in layers to match the original? Or with an accompanying holdout matte to simulate how the footage would be composited?
