Danny Takacs_Matte Painting_Battleground Cincinnati


Since there was an extension I thought I’d have some more fun and try out another category. I’ll be making a matte painting in the destroyed city category. I’m going to turn my city of Cincinnati, Ohio into an alien or robot battleground. Here is the base photo that I will be using:


Damage pass:

With 3D alien ships:


Final still image with fx:

And final matte painting in motion:


I had a lot of fun making this and learned a lot about compositing in the process.

Software used: Zbrush, Keyshot, Photoshop, and HitFilm Pro.
