I felt that I needed to do a warmup, since I've been staring at the same two matte paintings for over two weeks and while I'm not tired of them, I wanted to approach some of the changes I needed to make with a fresh eye.
This is a copy of a classic matte painting by Rob Stromberg
Update: Look...I know this painting is uber saturated. It's subpar. Will try to do better
Later I checked to see if the film was on Netflix streaming. It is, but as luck would have it I don't think the matte painting shows up in the film.
I was trying as much as possible to replicate classic matte painting techniques in Photoshop. Just used brushes and tried to have fun.
