The Great Gatsby - Valley Of The Ashes /night/, Jacek Irzykowski (2D)

Title: The Great Gatsby - Valley Of The Ashes /night/
Name: Jacek Irzykowski
Country: Australia
Software: MARI, Photoshop

Time has come to present the work I have done during last 6 months. Valley of the ashes in 'The Great Gatsby' was very important location for Baz Luhrmann. A depressing rubbish dump that characters pass when travelling from Long Island to Manhattan. The majority of this location was created digitally.

Indicated is a wide shot of the valley straight after Myrtle's death.

Matte painting was created in Photoshop from various photographic elements as well as rendered 3d assets. I have started with the sky that changed few times before final approval. Extension of the horizon line had to be produced after that as well as continuation of the rail track and road. Final shot break up will be presented in my showreel 2013 which is coming up soon.

On the animated GIF image ( link below ) you can see the main creation stages.

Credits from Iloura apart from matte painting:
Supervision - Julian Dimsey
Rendering and layout - Tony Alamo
Compositing - Elena Topouzoglou

Amazing work. You have to zoom to appreciate the work.

It's fantastic - a little dark to fully appreciate on the screen - it's true it's better zoomed. Wonderful detail.

Thank you Romanovich and Buscat. It is quite dark true, hopefully you had a chance to see it in the movies
