    Marco Bucci Art Thread

    This is my first post on ConceptArt, so I guess I should introduce myself. I'm Marco Bucci; I work as a matte painter/concept artist in Toronto, Canada. Also a dedicated student of painting. So much good art on these forums...decided to finally sign up and post some stuff. Feel free to c&c!

    To start with, here's a fairly straight forward cityscape. Every matte painter inevitably has to do a fair share of these

    Those cityscapes are about 3 hours each.

    These are thumbnails painted on the Nintendo DS, using an awesome little app called Colors! I'm sure many people here have it.

    Olivier - thanks for the subscription! I'll try and get a new vid up there soon.

    BenDragon - Thanks a lot! Yeah, Schmid is definitely one of my big influences. Along with Sargent, Weistling, Lipking...you can find traces of all of them somewhere I think.

    Rustveld - Definitely get yourself a DS. Lots of fun! Mine doesn't seem to be working anymore unfortuantely

    Jamesharry - thanks!

    Here's another painting:

    TheGnoll - very cool gallery you have as well.
    Here's some more stuff.

    My friends over at The Labyrinth Book Store (which some of you may be familiar with) are asking artists to submit a piece to their Iron Giant Project. Anything goes, as long as it's related to the film. This is mine:

    This is a straight forward quicksketch concept for a matte painting:

    And some color keys for a short film project that's currently in limbo.

    This one was a fun experiment. I originally painted everything in focus, and then hand-painted a depth map to get the blur. A depth map will be familiar to any 3D artist out there. It's basically just a grayscale image, where black represents close distance, and white represents far distance (and everything in between). This map can be fed into Photoshop's Lens Blur filter to achieve a sophisticated depth of field blur.

    MY GOD I WANT THAT DS THING NOW AND HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR SKYSCRAPERS LOOK SO NEAT!? D:

    Your work is gorgeous! I think for the more cartoony layouts, you could have them a bit more 'lived in', say a washing line full of mine worker's dungarees and underpants, or posters or signs for stores, etc. Thank you for your inspiring work!

    Marco Bucci! I've seen your videos on youtube. They are very very helpful and I hope you'll make more of them.

    I love the depth of field painting. Looks ace.

    I don't really sketch with the DS anymore...I've switched to the iTouch! I'm using Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile for these, with a Pogo stylus.
