Oh wow that brings back memories.

"Magic white" all over the canvas, and ... of course ... "paint 'a Mighty Tree"

Nice work there J. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Baxter on a film a few years back and he was exceptional.

You need to add a few more "happy trees" and nice little friends... After all "it's your own little world." "Do whatever you like and makes you happy."

I love the fro man. I never had pbs growing up but now have a free-to-air satellite reciever and am trying to get myself in to the habbit of watching the painting shows on Create TV that come on at 9 pm CST. They also come on at 9AM CST if you aren't at work at that time... They have a 30 minute time slot and rotate between Bob Ross, a Watercolor guy, and a One Stroke Lady. If any of you don't have PBS locally, you might want to look in to getting a free-to-air satellite system. I hang out on the forums over at quite a bit, and that is THE PLACE on the internet to learn the diy art of fta... lots of other places have some forums but most other places are illegitamate and just talk about hacking direct tv, dish network, or bel expresvu... satelliteguys is all legit and any hack talk will get you kicked out of the forums for life!... I love having fta satellite. There's TONS of free channels up there in the sky, and it's very liberating knowing I can get all these awesome channels without having to ever pay a monthly bill to anyone ever!... and better yet, it's totally legal!

Default lightsources - 11-01-2007, 10:29 AM

Here is a quick tutorial on how I did some of the lights. This technique I use for a Sun, Lights on freeway, bridge, even window in a building. I just make th e color and / or shape differently. For example windows would be a square /rectangle, change up the color and value. And you have windows. Dont forget, its not just the light it self that seems to glow. Paint reflective light around it to indicate its hitting something. You can't see it in this version, but in the High Res version I have, I did put some interactive light on the rigging and bridge. Even when it got shrank down, it may not be seen, but its perceived. I took a painted element like this and shrank it down to make it lights on the bridge. Then used Hue / Sat and changed the hue on a few to make it more random and not so copied.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much! That was great. I have real trouble to make skyes... I always try by overlapping gradients at low opacity, but nothing looks half as good as well done brush work.

You make it seem almost easy... I guess I'll manage to do one of those one day.

I have long admired matte painting, but never really had much of a clue as to how the magic happened.

Thank you VERY MUCH for this tutorial. You've done a masterful job of making it look "easy," which, combined with some of the other tips and suggestions on this site, truly is inspiring.
