In this video tutorial we go through the entire process of the 3D matte painting workflow. I begin with designing a composition and then get into creating a mood through lighting design. We then go into the modeling process covering how to model the scene keeping in mind that texturing painting will help us achieve most of our look so we don’t over-model our scene unnecessarily.We’ll then go into scene layout and blocking in our scene using our concept as a guide. Creating all our elements and populating the scene with vegetation, people, props and lights. We’ll cover Vray shaders, setting up our lights, creating water, fog and atmosphere and finally rendering out passes that we will use to bring our painting to final, giving us full control of every aspect of the painting.

Intended for beginning to intermediate painters, this video tutorial will take you through the entire matte painting process from designing a shot all the way through to the final painting. I discuss composition and design and the principles that create strong focal areas by leading the viewers eye and micro-composition from master artists to gathering reference for study and use in your painting. I demonstrate many techniques I use to create successful matte paintings, from photo manipulation, color correction and hand painting techniques. You’ll learn how to stylize your painting, create depth and mood through lighting and atmosphere and create drama in your shots. Whether you’re doing concept art or matte paintings for film or games, these essential steps and techniques will help you design and create artwork at the highest professional quality.
