Hi,

Early wip. I'm practicing adding 3d renders aswell as a building in this piece (not shown here). Need to get it to look more believable. Currently watching Dylan Cole's matte painting DVDs for some awesome tips and tricks.

However, I modeled a basic foreground in maya and then imported it to Vue where I then did a very basic landscape plate and a quick render.

Also got one cityscape matte painting coming up.

I also got accepted into the school I applied for and I recently moved to Stockholm so unfortunately I have not had much time to work on my matte paintings nor sketches.

Take care everyone and thanks for looking,

-Alexander I

Hi,

Just a little update. Started blocking out the FG now and merged some of the mountains a bit together.

Still lots of work left (values etc etc)! The FG had to be warped and distorted in sooo many ways.. It was great practice even though its not done yet.

Thanks for looking and take care,

Thanks for looking and take care,

Hio,

Just a quick update with some progress. Still some cleaning to do but I've done some rough block in on the buildings and just trying things out. No values, colors etc has been corrected yet.

Comments and critique are more than welcome.

Thanks for looking,

-Alexander I

Good start and nice mood you got there. At this stage my only concern is the camera lens distortion you have in your original plate. I would strongly suggest you to remove the distortion and if necessary add it later in the comp.

Good luck,
Rahul

Hey Rahul,

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. I will eventually fix the distortion, not worrying all too much about that in this matte though.

Thanks again man.

Just another update. I haven't got so much time to work on these anymore. School takes most of my time. Done some more clean up, and playing around with the big textures a bit. Tons of stuff left.

Thanks for looking & take care,

Hey everyone,

Just a quick little update on my first cityscape matte painting. It's getting close to finish. At the moment there's value fix and some minor things here and there that has to be improved, reflections some textures etc..

Comments and critique is as usual welcome.

Thanks for looking,

-Alexander I

Hey guys!

Been awhile since I posted anything. School takes up quite alot of time but it's so much fun!

Anyway, here is a WIP of a personal matte I am currently working on whenever I have the time. It's something a bit different from me than what I usually do.

It's still early in the progress as you probably can see but it's good to upload it early anyway, in my opinion. If anyone have any comment/critique etc, it is as usual more than welcome.

Thanks for looking,

-Alexander I

Hey everyone,

An early WIP of a matte painting that I'm working on. It's the first time I paint over a 3D render so that's the main practice with this matte.

The 3D render is basic but it's a start. Will start doing more advanced when I'm finished with this one.

So far I've only done some rough photobashing but any comments/critique is more than welcome.

Thanks for looking,

-Alexander I

This one really looks promising Alex, as of now I am only worried about that slight perspective issues in the center buildings structures.

Looking forward to your update on this one :)

Best,
Rahul
