This is a short projection animation I did for a matte painting I recently completed. Chose the flipped version, just seemed t flow better with the camera. It was initially only intended for to be painting, but I ended up testing it as a projection and matte painting animation. I enjoyed the hell out of it, and was also a great learning experience with matte animation. I will be posting a breakdown and explanation of how exactly I did it. Hope you enjoy it and your comments are welcome Read Less

Exploitation – Matte Painting/Concept Art/3D

Sofware Used: 3D Max, Adobe Photoshop, Nik Software, Magic Bullet

Hello to all the community.

Finally I have finished off a “little” (that ended up not being so little) personal project.
It’s a tribute to my infancy and all the Sci-Fi movies I watched and adore to this day, be it Blade Runner, Star Wars or the even later Prometheus (there’s a little homenage in there if you can find it and a couple of other references to other things that have influenced my life, London etc).

The visual aspect of these filmes have stayed in my mind, even throughout all my architectural course. I wanted to create a world that was halfway between something earth like and outer earth. The initial working title I think explains the work best. It was initially called “Exploration”, of both the storey line and the techniques involved, thus turning into a more suiting “Exploitation”, which reflects a little of what goes on in the world today with natural resources/mining and ecological factores.

I’ve been longing to create something of this genre for quite a while, as I wanted to explore further the connection between 3D and matte painting. Also trying something I don’t usually have the opportunity to try, exploiting a cold, uncomfortable climat. I became quite interested in matte painting after working at Vyonyx, they really showed me a new way to look at things, so a big thanks to all.

That’s all for now, I hope you like it, and look forward to your comments as well.
