Hey guys !! here we can share our sketches !
as you all know sketching is the first step in to matte painting creation, this technique shows composition
color palette
mood
concept
and of course our 2D painting skills will be much stronger making our eye better and our hands faster to add details where ever you wish when ever you need it
the topic is free, probably most of the sketches we will see here will end in a fantastic high detailed matte painting, so let's start !!

I will star with a couple of my own sketches that I did to create some of the final matte paintings shown in my personal portafolio .

hey Kutkin welcome aboard , , definitly a tablet is a must have , sketching without it is a pain in the ..... you know, thanks sharing your first sketch-concept
for this I think you need more detail, more human reference , I mean I can't understand how big or how far things are. or even what are they , are those mountains?? or some kind of architecture?
keep posting

First post ^^

Hey, yeah tablet is defiently a must, especially if you gotta sketch
and/or doing matte paintings :P
I think i going to post something here too. later
 
  04 April 2006
Thanks,
I have to get some wacom as soon as possible then

The "mountains" in the sketch are supposed to be some architecture underwater...
I haven't worked on it much so far, so it's hard to identify what is going on there


And anyway, Jamie, your sketches are awesome!
I have seen your paintings and they are even better! Good work!

And peeps, keep posting sketches!
Cheers

Nobody seems to be posting any sketches, so here am I with another noob sketch

I was trying to make a lightening above the mountain and stormy heavy sky...

But I am not very happy with it...


And here is the original photo shot of Petrovy Kameny (Peter's Stones/Rocks) in Jeseníky (CZ)


Done in about 1/2 hour.
Some tips, how to do lightening would be great

At least something you can crit

I love the sketches... very inspiring.

Zoki -
Your first picture... Very nice. The rock becomes allmost detailed enough with a few brushstrokes. Though the compostion is a bit off. My leads toward the sun but as there isn't much to see there my eye almost instantly leads me to the cliff side on the right. Seems more interresting to look at.
The sunlight, flare, hides the detail of the structure standing on that cliff.. Make the effect more subtle. And preserve more detail there.. then it is quite good i think.

Second... i think the perspective is a off.. though i have to say the fading of the buildings in the distance is very nice. I think this was a test in depth, wasn't it? Now, fade the smoke the same as the building the smoke comes from. Then the smoke won't be the predominant character in the image.
The detail of the front most smoke now indicates that the focus is there while the front most building indicates the focus is there.
So, fade smoke or make the builing it connects too more detailed then the front building. You're getting there.
Third... Clouds are very nicely done.. They lead the eye nicely in the distance. But the ground needs to be tighter... Now it's fuzzy like the clouds or sometimes even worse. If you flip the image upside down and paint a horizon through the sun you'll have a seascape with very dark storm clouds over it. You'll see.
Tighten the ground up and this image will settle. Also paint some details in there like a vilage or something. It'll help with the scale of your scene.

Kutkin--
Refine the image with the colorfull sky more, please.. the ground refinements are very good, especially since it's done with a mouse. Though what this image lacks is reference of scale and a point of interrest. Try to get something in there. Seems corny but again a village. It will be good training on perspective.

---

This doesn't mean that i paint better then you. But, it's just an observation. I really do like what i see here.

I paint roughly the same as you guys. In my paintings i have the same problems. Detail that shows scale and a point of interrest. It lacks stories, that's the right word i'm looking for. I'm having lot's of trouble with refining, adding details. They allways seem to be off.

I'll post one of my own and you'll see.

Dennis
