My first attempt at matte painting, this piece was based on a simple plate I shot myself up at Cypress Mountain, Vancouver, Canada. All the photographic resources used in the creation of this piece were either shot by me, or sourced from cgtextures.com
Here's a short animated version of the shot, followed by a quick walk-through of all the layers so you can see the work that went into this piece.
You can watch this in HD over at youtube here.
Thanks for looking, please check out my other matte paintings too.
