mind doing s demo? because it looks like all your using is stock refs and crop and shape... Im just curious on how your getting in the level of form and detail..

I'm planning to do one soon. Got all the stuff I need - now I have to find some time for it.
Since this is a matte painting mostly all is stock material. The biggest work is to find a good composition, the right material and make it fit.
But a demo is planned…
Keep an eye on my blog. this will be the first place I'll post it.
Cheers

so its mostly stock and composition? thats not hard but what about difference in resolution and amount of detail difference in visual weight?

donmalo Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Yup - especially for matte paintings.
Well - I don't call it "not hard" 'cause you have to find the right material and make it fit. Sometimes you have a huge color difference thats must be changed.
If you go for a matte painting you have to use Hires material. The only exception is the background where you could work with blur.
Missing details must be painted in or must be combined with additional structure materials

but how do you make the material cohesive with the paint overs you add?
let me guess.. lighting? the best I've done was this

Well - basically a Matte Painting. So lots of refs and merged together. With a little bit "pure" painting here and there
Best and thanks!!
