I wanted to create an image in the style of the film Franklyn (2008). I’ve had the chance to work on some Concepts and Matte-Painting for this project, and I always loved this idea of having gigantic statues in a city like London. This painting is an homage to the original film.
Hi, in this video, I will show you how to create an aerial shot, from above the clouds, with a camera move. We will do the Matte Painting in Photoshop, then we’ll move in Nuke to setup a camera projection and animate the shot in 2.5D.
Here is an accelerated version of the creation of a Digital Matte Painting in the style of the film “The Martian”.
We started with gathering a few images, looking at some references, and then we went through the whole process. I tried to follow the whole creative process, with some attempts, mistakes, change of direction, new sources, etc.
If you want to get the files to try to create this matte-painting, please check my Patreon Page.
It’s very important to be able to check your black levels, your highlights and shadows or your saturation if you have done a Matte Painting by merging a lot of different sources. In this video, I’ll show you how to create a Gizmo in Nuke, extract a few controllers and create a QCNode in Nuke. Enjoy!
