Matte Painting - Sunset Memory, Justin Van Der Lek (2D)



Title: Matte Painting - Sunset Memory
Name: Justin Van Der Lek
Country: Netherlands
Software: (Other), Photoshop

Name: Sunset Memory
Software: Photoshop / Discreet Inferno
Time: 2 Weeks

Hi there...

At work we had a lot of sparetime, so we decided to do a little challenge in Matte Painting. Because we got inspired by watching the new Gnomon Matte Painting DVD's by Mr Lorenz Scheurer.

I started with a plate shot in Holland, and just starting to block in my comp and tried to set the mood by making a sky. This painting is really made without prior planning... by just doing it and just see where it ends. Inferno is used for some atmospheric effects. Hope you guys enjoy... :)

Greetz,
Dalaran AW

This has to be your best matte painting yet Dalaran.
Looking at the original plates you handeled the LIGHTNING and
dust particles really well.

Well, everything seems to blend, a balanced composition, the ideas are in place,
the mood is killer... bravo. Can't wait for your next piece. R.
