HOPA games scene making for my studio,simple question

So i got a job to do a full scene in 3ds max for my studio that makes hidden object games and the director asked me to model it,do the lighting and textures but he asked me to "paint it" in i think he meant photoshop cause he was talking about it.He says our players like this kind of coloring.So my question is whats the actual name of what he's asking me so i can find tutorials on it? ill include some pictures of scenes from their games

thanks a lot in advance!

He's either after a particular mood, or you're about to book a trip to Disneyland and take a lot of photos from their tunnel-based fun rides.

My personal guess is he's after moody colored lighting... But that's just a guess.

"Paint it" should not count as a complete set of instructions.
It's just two words.

I agree completely,from my understanding he asked me to paint models of the scene in 3ds max and give it that feeling of painted ambient rather than just materials and textures,do you happen to know what this process is called?

He means lots of paintovers in Photoshop.

Sounds like he is requesting a style. When I am unsure if I am expressing my vision correctly to our creatives, I am sure to give them plenty of reference. I usually convey a bit more than 2 words.

In my past roles as a production creative, I would give directors with vague directions literally what they asked for, especially if they came across as a arrogant or insulting (not recommended unless you have no fear of losing your job). It used to really piss them off, but got the message across. It still happens occasionally in my group when someone bypasses me and makes a request from one the people in my studio. My creatives will translate a request literally and to their own interpretation, versus the usual subjective expressions used by people every day.

I figured what they want from me..its called overpaint so that the colors look extremely hand colored like while the models in the scene are realistic.I guess now i have to find some tutorials on how can i do that..

I dont really think there are many tutorials on that specifically, but if you search through some of the Matte Painting sites, you should get some good tips on photographic integration.

Yes that's possible. That high saturated look seems to be popular. If I were the one at the working end, I would probably ask the director to be more specific so I didn't waste time doing the job differently to the way he wanted.
