FXWars! Winter Kingdoms, JB, TRIBUTE

I think I'll try a Narnia style White Witch castle. A few establishing shots should be a lot of fun

I'm hoping you're using your matte painting skills for this. For this topic, I'd wish I was a matte painter. Good luck!

Actually, yes it's going to be pretty much exterior matte painting and camera mapping. I'm just starting to work it out in my head and write some stuff down.

Pics to follow soon

Had some free time today, so I took a shot at painting up a castle.

So much more work to go

Thanks so much

I figure I should update with something. Here's what I'm going for, it's a rough sketch, trying to find the mood and colors and good mountain shapes.

Can't wait to put the whole thing into motion, get some snow and blowing trees, camera mapping etc.

Happy new year!

the castle painting looks really well done,it would be nice to see some more architecural elements mixed in amongst the ice.
is it photo based or straight painting?..looking forward to the animation

Thanks Stefan.

Adding more architectural elements is a good idea, hopefully I'll have the time to add extra details.

There are a lot of photo elements in the castle, as well as painting.

Good job JB,

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more.

OK, here's my first go at a composite of this. I made some changes to the castle and have lots of weather elements added, and some blowing trees.
