The Outpost by JamesLedgerConcepts The Outpost by JamesLedgerConcepts
First attempt at Matte Painting. 2 weeks of farting about! All created and painted in Photoshop CS5.
To create something similar would cost about 320 ($500).

I only use photoshop. I just paint and sometimes use photo stock for textures. I have'nt done any animation before or 3D rendering.
I use a wacom intuos 4 tablet to paint with. I learned by watching guys like this [link]

Reply

JamesLedgerConcepts Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks again pin - A matte painting is a painted representation of a landscape, set, or distant location that allows filmmakers to create the illusion of an environment that would otherwise be too expensive or impossible to build or visit. Historically, matte painters and film technicians have used various techniques to combine a matte-painted image with live-action footage. At its best, depending on the skill levels of the artists and technicians, the effect is "seamless" and creates environments that would otherwise be impossible to film.
