Artwork Description

Hope you like this one, it's one of the few base/environment cards I'm doing. Just at the moment I've been very interested in the techniques used by matte painters, please don't get me wrong at this point because I know that this is not good enough to be used as a matte painting but I've always liked to try to incorporate a little bit of realism into what I've painted and matte painting is that ideal taken to It's limit. Anyway, again, hope you like this one and as always thank you for visiting.

Thank you Malcolm, always a pleasure to hear from you.

Thanks Nathan, there is probably a little more detail than you will actually see on the card, which really means I've wasted my time little but I did enjoy this one which always makes it worthwhile!

Pierre, it's not really important to me that you say anything meaningful in your comment, what is important is that you have taken the time out to do so, thank you my friend!

Thanks for saying that Siravalenta, I have been trying very hard to improve. The thing is if I can't improve then I don't think I'm going to stand much of a chance of surviving as a freelancer. I hope the future will be kind!

Cheers mate, that's a really nice thing to say but personally I think I'm a long way off the standard of Matte painting you see on the big screen these days.

Thanks Christopher, studying how other people work is always a good idea. Unfortunately the more I learn the more I realise how much I don't know!! If that makes sense!

Difficult for me to find anything more clever to say than "wow !". Another "wow" after the many "wows" that your art made me voice.
