Matte Painting Exercise #001
This is the first in a series of 4 I will be doing, to develop my matte and digital painting techniques.

In this sketch, the idea was to capture that old Western look with desaturated warm and bland colors, while at the same time changing the setting to a sci-fi/fantasy realm.

Inspiration and guidance taken from Dylan Cole's awesome tutorial over at The Gnomon Workshop.

Estimated time to completion - 7 hrs
Software - Adobe Photoshop
Hardware - Wacom Intuos 4
