Hello Everyone !

The key elements of matte painting are a good base plate , an immersive design and execution, one that transports the viewer to far-off worlds.

See how to match a CGI render with a Photo, and paintover to push the image to the next Level like a Digital Matte Painting or a realistic Concept Art.

In this Technical / artistic Tutorial with audio comments, I will be taking you through the process of creation of a Matte Painting / Realistic Concept Art showing different techniques. 

We will see how to use a photograph as a plate and do the matching of Perspective, the focal points, based on the original picture in a 3D scene and Push the composition to a next level with a Photoshop Digital painting and some CG tricks...

My demo is using 3DSMax 20016 but any other 3D software can work for this example! this is a process and technique that is applicable to any other CG tool.
