Hello all !

I try to post a new version in high res of the matte. I post some request to moderator and I don't have answers. So i try, myself, to post bigger version...

Why don't you get yourself an account over at www.tripod.lycos.co.uk ?
They still allow outside linking, as far as I know.

Astounded by the quality of matte paintings here at cgtalk - is there a tut somewhere?

02-04-2003, 03:08 PM
Beautiful,very realistic looking.

This is very due for a CGTalk Award!!!

02-04-2003, 03:38 PM
What to say.. stunning!

02-04-2003, 03:42 PM
C'est magnifique.. Comment arrives-tu à un réalisme pareil ? j'imagine les années d'experience, parceque la perso j'avais jamasi vu un truc aussi fin, aussi proche de la réalité. L'éclairage est aussi a tomber par terre, respect absolu

02-04-2003, 03:53 PM
Merci pour les compliments mais je crois que tu fais fausse route. J'ai pris pour base de départ des photos. Ensuite avec la technique du paint j'ai recréé mes ombres et comblé les parties manquantes. Mais le détail en lui même et le motif sont fournis par les photos. Le paint est très utile lorsque tu n'as pas de samples qui correspondent mais il est assez identifiable c'est pourquoi il faut l'utiliser avec parcimonie ou bien en avoir une très grande maîtrise.

02-04-2003, 04:22 PM
Very good work. I would love to see how you did this.

CGTalk Award, where are you :wip:

02-04-2003, 05:34 PM
That's really great. Seeing the detail on the stone really helps the atmoshphere of it.

I can almost see the spaceship sticking out around the corner of that pillar now :p

Well, Bruzundanga, you missed out...it was really nice.... ::taunt taunt::

No, seriously...it was. Awesome work! Would be interesting to hear details of what parts/how much is from photos and what's painted or changed.
