Matte Paint - The Sentinels

Here's my latest Matte paint.  More concept and painting in this one than the pontoon DMP I did.  I could probably do with beefing up the texture on the structures but I just haven't found the textures.

Matte Paint - Pontoon Village

I've decided to get on a learning binge this year. Fortunately my work paid for me to do a Matte painting course over at CGSociety with Blizzards David Luong.  Here's my first complete* matte paint.

Matte painting certainly makes me look again and the way I work and indeed my perception of what art for the entertainments industry is. I tried to be controlled in the fact I used photos and minimal freehand painting.  I think the real value for me will be when I use these techniques as a launch pad for concept art.
