This is a matte painting I did for the movie: A Different Loyalty. The shot was film in Montreal Canada. I was asking to make it look like it was film in Moscow Russia during the cold war. The trees are hand paint. I didn't have any picture of Moscow with a good perspective. I had to rebuild all buildings in Photoshop to give them the right camera angle. I really enjoy doing this matte. I whish I had more time to spend on the trees, they still need a bit more detail i think.
Here is the original plate
