Default Finished Matte Paintings - 11-13-2013, 02:10 PM

Hi everyone!

Here is the final image and original plate for the Destroyed Bridge environment I was working on.





I also have a breakdown of it on my blog, so you are welcome to check it out if you like:

And here is a link to the WIP I posted a while ago:

I am happy with the result, but I would love to know your opinion so I can improve my skills.

Thanks!

Pedro Colmenares

Well done,
I like the overall look, addition of puddle with reflection and the use of very foreground element for framing.
I would have change the shape of smoke or remove it.
Well done

Hey Rasoul,

Thank you very much for your comment. I agree with you, I wasn't very happy with the smoke in general. I'll try to put more effort next time.

Thanks again.

Default Futuristic City - 04-16-2014, 09:07 AM



Hi everyone! Here is a piece that I finished recently of a futuristic city.
I made simple 3D geometry, lit and render the scene and use photo elements to add details to the shapes and textures.

I wanted to create depth so I chose this type of lighting and a heavy use of atmosphere.
The main source of inspiration for this piece was the Megacity One aerial shots of the movie Dredd 3D.

You can check a video with the breakdowns on the following link if you wish.

Thanks for taking a look!

Pedro.

Hi Pedro,

I like it. I don't see anything wrong with it right away. Not sure why the graininess, but it looks good. Composition is neat, to me at least. Atmosphere, and yep, lots of space. Forboding.

So, it looks like you've altered the rendering approach I would use for something like this. I did spend a little time with a Dredd-type image. But a it looks like a standard comp course would be very helpful for me. Maybe these people who make these really convincing scenes in films and games actually sort of know what they're talking about....... you know. Might be time to finally head over to FXGuide or somebody and pick up a comp course. (Not an affiliate. I just tune in there a lot.)

Looks to me like you have some fun doing this kind of stuff. I checked out the demo reel. I like the song too.

This pic works for me. Cool.

Joel

Hello Joel,

Thank you very much for your comment. Yeah, you are totally right about the grain, it is way too much. I am one of those people that tends to throw all sort of lens artifacts (flares, grain, dirt, chromatic aberration...) to hide mistakes... All it does is making it all messy, and any DOP would throw a Lens with so much artifacts straight to the trash. I am trying to fix that actually, so thank you for mentioning that. Next time I'll make it more subtle.

In my opinion, there are several areas that still need work, some buildings need more definition, some other ares need less detail, I could have added things like air traffic or stuff... but you know, when you work on this kind of personal projects, you never "finish" one, you just abandon it and move to the next one hehe.

Well, thanks a lot for checking my work, and yes, working on this stuff is quite a lot of fun, as a hobby and as a profession, so I guess I am glad to be part of this Industry somehow.

Cheers!


Pedro.

A new personal Matte Painting project I did during my lunch breaks and slow times at work.
I used a plate I shot and did a Day for Night to start with.
For this one I used only photo elements and a little bit of hand painting techniques. The main purpose of this project was to practice a Day for Night conversion and apply a mood based on night scenes of films like "The Hobbit" with very saturated blue light a the dominant environment light and little warm accents caused by the fire in the ground.

I have a breakdown of this project on my blog, feel free to take a look and throw some comments if you wish!
