Default Matte - 08-20-2012, 03:49 AM

Looks great, very nice...but, in my opinion it is more "Concept oriented" than a matte painting...

I would remove the Color Grading and the space ship as well, cause, these elements, shouldn't be a part of a matte...

But this is just my opinion working in production....and try to follow the same way to work as delivering....

anyway...very nice paint....

I think it's my favorite of all the entries so far, the cloudscape looks very dramatic and realistic. I envy that. It's true it doesn't follow the concept art very closely, maybe that's why I like it so much. :-D

thanks Erik, you're not the only one getting frustrated :) the grade on this is going to do me in... I think I will run with lighter clouds in the distance like our atmo... I realise they are backlit etc but I cant settle in darker ones (like the concept art) and keep getting challenged as what to do with the horizon. One observation with the awesome prometheus clouds is because they were more side-lit the mattes had big sections of mostly unlit space, almost blacks which looked great, really made for nice composition, keep feeling that mine looks all too even across the plate... dave
