3d Matte Paintings


Ive come to realize over the years the value of a good matte paintings.Since my initial exposure to animation was in CG, my typical approach was to do all the final lighting in 3d ,which meant hours of painful lighting, rendering and tweaking in 3d to get an ok result.
Im using a different approach for my own short, and that is to actually paint onto a base 3d render.
You can see the result for yourself, much richer and varied colours and a chance to artistically control the lighting without going mad!
