yesterday i began to create a new matte Painting without any render or reference pictures and called this Sketch "Canyon Town". In my dreams i saw this little town, surrounded from green hills, stony mountains and some beautiful waterfalls and as i awaked i decide to brush my dream in Photoshop. Hope you like the start of this matte painting. :)
Edit: I should say, its one of my first matte paintings i´ve done. Thats why i would like it, if you can say something more about the FOV, the direction of lightning or about the colour palette and the main concept all in all...please tell me some basic faults or if you think something is off. Your words should help me to become better and i only want to learn more about the techniques of matte paintings. So really big thx, for any people who will give me some feedback now.
Programs i´ve used:
- Photoshop 7.0
- without any graphic tablett
- only with mouse
- no Render, no Reference Pics
