Default Cityscapes - 07-28-2005, 04:45 AM

Hi,

I've just stumbled on this forum and I'm in awe of all the fantastic images floating around. Excellent stuff.

Now, to my question...

I'm toying with a graphic novel project I've been working on, on and off for the past 6 years or so. I've got to a point where I want to create some visuals of the places in the book I have in my head. Most significantly a city.

So I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice about creating Cityscapes?

Thanks,
Doogal

The best resource would be Dylan's DVD

Introduction to Cityscape Matte Painting

That would be very useful, but I'm incredibly skint at the moment. So any "free" advice would be great!

Thanks for the pointer though,
Doogal

Then try starting based on a high resolution sky plate such as those available for FREE at:
http://www.imageafter.com

There are some good tutorials on how to start with a sky plate and manipulate it here;

and

Modifying a real plate keeps the image believable.
I also recommend studying Dylan and Dusso’s work on their web sites.
