Digital Tutors training released

My course has just been released on Digital Tutors site. Feel free to check out and learn some of my techniques.

In the tutorial we are going to create a concept art based on simple 3D model render which we will enhance in Photoshop to a believable, apocalyptic environment.

We will use various techniques that will help to achieve coherent results that could also be applied to the creation of matte paintings. We will look at recreating lighting, introduction of damage to the elements of architecture, texturing in Photoshop, suggesting strong atmosphere with emphasis on depth cueing, and finally painting over using graphic tablet.

I' Frankenstein

My involvement in 'I, Frankenstein' included production of matte paintings, textures and camera projections. Attached is the link to the trailer . I will share the individual work and break downs once the movie is released. The very first shot when Gideon shoots through the cathedral ceiling uses matte paint I worked on.

Sydney Opera and Harbour Bridge

Couple of shots taken during our trip to Sydney in August. I know, I know : cheesy...still, gotta love this spot! We were lucky to get on the ferry back from Manly at the golden hour right when harbour bridge was casing its shadow on the Opera, magical!
