Matte Painting

An exploration in digital matte painting creation, projection, and compositing.

An exploration in digital matte painting creation, projection, and compositing for my Animation IV class at Ringling College. By combining and color correcting multiple images into a digital matte painting in Photoshop, using images from my personal photo library, I was then able to camera project them in Nuke on cards and geo, color grade everything, and add camera movement and other visual effects into the final composite.
Process / Breakdown:
