I finally decided to upload my good old Gnomon Tutorial done 10 years ago focusing here on the The "Matte Painting Techniques" Part.
In this tutorial I am using an older versions of 3dsMax and Photoshop but the techniques remain the same, it is a great "back into the basics" of Digital Matte Painting.
145 Minutes of Videos showing DMP techniques from 3D rendering, Texturing in 3D Max to Photo-bashing and lighting techniques in photoshop.
Video I : 3D Scene & Shading Setup - 15 Minutes
Video II : Sky Painting - 21 Minutes
Video III : Landscape PhotoBashing Techniques - 43 Minutes
Video IV : Digital Painting and Detailing - 50 Minutes.
Video V : The Final Touches - 16 Minutes.
*Resolution is 720p these videos were done 10 years ago for a DVD. resolution is 1024x768, still pretty sharp (uncompressed sources).*
*The Full Tutorial including the mood paint is still available on Gnomon if you still have a subscription.*
