Default Matte Painting, 3D Environment by Edward Grad - 11-12-2010, 11:28 AM

Matte painting I did, for Discover Card commercial.

I always enjoy creating day to night time changes matte paintings, it was very pleasant project to work on, because I was responsible for all assets myself, (except one person did moving wire animation, with 3D snow and other comp it in Flame).
Always pleasure for me to work using Photoshop and Maya, see detail and breakdowns below.

Love your shot.
One question- how are you using the alpha channel layers for parallax?

thanks

I always break entire scene in separate assets (layers), determination of the asset boundaries I base on Paralaxing needs and decision what is going to be 2.5 or 3D projection and what is will be composited in Nuke or Shake.
2D asset that goes to comp, has a separate alpha channel file - a black and white version of color the layer. If 2.5 projection on Maya geometry, I have separate alpha channel file too.
To have alpha channel precise I create masks in my Photoshop, as I paint my layers so I can quickly use them when I need to create alpha channel. Otherwise I go to quick mask mode in Photoshop and paint my alpha channel.
