cmiVFX has released a brand new Large Scale Set Extension Digital Matte Painting video with mentor Rohit Nayak. Explore the entire matte painting and set extension workflow from the first concept sketch to the final painting. Gain experience by creating CG assets and painting over a lighting render, which is a commonly used work process for environments in production.
Rohit demonstrates many photo manipulation and digital painting techniques in a very comprehensive manner. This video discusses a complete production pipeline for handling large-scale environments. We’ll be spending most of our time in Photoshop, but we’ll also use Maya for the basic lighting information and to get the perspective matching the base plate. This video is for artists of many different skill levels, and will provide something for everyone. Enjoy!
