    "Spring Sunset" - matte painting

    I did this over 4 days. My first attempt at a more serious matte painting. I also did a short 20sec animation, which you can find below. Unfortunately the city's movement, volume and crispness make it look like a cardboard. I will do better next time.
    A special thanks to Pedro Camacho for his great soundtrack.

    Well that's just freaking awesome! That's definitely a good way to make a matte painting portfolio, making into actual digital film movement. I guess the cityscape might need to be more in the form of a 3D model somehow to make it come in from left to right in the picture? You could see the mountain in the background turning toward the center as the camera pulled away. Very nice work man. The music worked in sinc real well too, great music. Hope to see more from you.

    That's a gorgeous painting! Did you work from photos at all or is it entirely hand painted?
    How did you do the parallax movment in your movie?

    Thanks everyone...

    I both painted and used photos. Mostly inserting the photo first and then filling in the gaps (sometimes these are huge) with painting. Also the photos require a lot of color/brightness/contrast tweaking before mergind down. Sometimes I repainted the whole thing after applying the photo, like most of the river plain. The parallax movement was done by projecting the painting (several layers) on top of simple geometry in 3dsmax and animating a camera through space.

    Nice! I think the cropped images are the way to go. They have a stronger impression to me than the entire landscape panorama. Plus you can see that the lines are fresh and you get a feel for the marks you're laying down. Nice work! The river image is stunning.

    Hey Andres,
    Great matte! The light and atmosphere in this is terrific. I agree that in the movie the last layer (with the castle and village) looks a bit flat but your paralax move is very convincing. I think if you had used a 3d model with that last part it'd work out just fine.

    DAmn Andreas! Your work is getting very strong!!! I really like this matte. I can agree that the forground castle and village seem placed. 3d is the way to go! It may work with a quick camera move, but I wouldn't really know, just an idea. good luck with the movie though! XD

    Great job Andreas!

    I agree with Bowlin and rambhat on the last layer...

    Keep up the good work!

    Wow, this is an excellent matte painting. I think you captured the sunset atmosphere very well, only suggestion would be perhaps to tone down the light tower and dome, or give parts of the city some more illumination, as to make it stand out as much as the tower/dome. Nice job.
