Hehe, this picture felt somehow familiar at first glance, I quickly realized why when I saw who made it

Great work Dylan, and thanks for the great DVDs!

Man, I just spent about an hour looking at your website and the detail you put into your work is amazing! You've inspired me to try and make my own matte painting - thanks!

Wow, thank you for the overwhelming response.
Thank you everyone for the kind words.

kbarts- yep, used similar trees. I shot them myself in NZ.

walrus-thanks, I had fun at the San Francisco event. I'm glad you enjoyed my session.

Kyena- Thanks, I am glad you can't tell how much is painted and how much is photo, that is the idea! It can't tell you an accurate ratio because I really don't know. A lot of the time it is just lightly painting over photos to add atmosphere or relighting a photo.

kraal-yes, I use a lot of the same photos, but that is usually because my clients ask for something specific and that is what they want. There is only so many ways you can show dramatic tropical green cliffs.

Purc-I wish I knew myself, I would be there with you!

Joscci-Thank you. I am not familiar with Shadow of the Colossus. What is that?

pum- glad you enjoyed the book, thanks!

dash2k4-thank you, I'm glad you like the DVDs. I put a lot into them.

HotGarbage- Thanks, good luck with your own matte painting!

sandrum- "beautiful fantasy goodness" is my favorite kind of painting!

Thanks again to everyone for the amazing response. And thanks again to Blur and Big Huge Games for allowing me to show this.

Very cool, I really like your stuff. How long does it take to make a matte painting of this quality (like it's just not a manipulated set extension thing, but more of a full screen establishing shot or something)?

Incredibly beautiful and well done. The lighting in this is so wonderfully soft and warm. The whole scene feels very peaceful.

I'd like to add that you have consistently been one of the largest sources of inspiration for me ever since I first encountered your work. I can't wait to see more.

5 stars just doesn't cut it.
