Matte Painting :: Practice 1 :: 2D Painting ::JOIN NOW

hey guys after that great atlantis challenge I thought it would be great if we all keep practicing before another real challenge,
I have here a photo taken from the net ( don't know who the photographer is ) but I think that for learning how paint it is a real good example from begginers to advance members.
the practice here will be to paint all , USE OF PHOTOS OR 3D ARE NOT ALLOWED.
just 2D painting , try to do it all manually without the use of gradients, rulers, masks etc.


SOURCE IMAGE

and this is what I could achive in some hours,




IMPORTANT THING:: because we are working with a real photo source try that your elements does not look like sketches, they should look really integrated and photorealistic, study the image very well before starting painting. levels, colors, mood, scale, depth etc. this will be fun and a fast practice for all of us

::YOUR FINAL IMAGES SHOULD BE IN THIS POST NOT NEW THREADS PLEASE ::

I think it’s better to work on something rather than just discuses on subject of 2nd challenge.

It’s good to work on the each dimension of matte p. as a practice. Lets do it this

yeah this is not just a 2D practice is a 2D painting over a real photo source, that has to do a lot of thing with matte painting in real life, I hpe much of your people get involved to this practice

nice one trialanderror vbmenu_register("postmenu_3844708", true); the levels are quite right, and the idea is nice, just I would do a lot more detail to that tower, tiny little details that make the elements more interesting and photorealistic

I've started to have a go at this one too.

one question I have.. is how do you work out the perspective for a scene like this?

donīt know exactly, but if itīs not too complex as in my image, I only use my eyes for perspective and if itīs more difficult (i.e. many buildings, characters,...) I use perspective grids for better proportions, eyelevel, etc...

hope that helps
