A color thumb for David Luong’s Digital Matte Painting course that I’m taking. The goal here was to further our black and white comps from last week by finding a base plate photograph that more or less matched the original comp, and then color-picking off the plate to introduce all the new elements into the scene. Below is the photographic plate (originally shot by Liga Eglite) and above is the final color thumb. #art #painting #digital #studio #sketch #color #lighting #mattepainting #dylanpierpont #landscape #environment #conceptart #film #gameart #dark #thumbnails #comps #value #color #photography #photograph #cantbelievethisplaceisreal #ligaeglite

Another round of sillos for digital matte painting. I spent a bit more time on each of these (20-30 min). I tried to simplify the comps and hopefully hit that grandiose scale without too much added information. I.E. here’s a mountain, a wall, a rock, etc. Excited to start finishing a few of these off! #art #painting #digital #studio #sketch #lighting #shadow #environment #conceptart #film #gameart #dark #thumbnails #comps #value #story #mattepainting #dylanpierpont #landscape

Working up another enviro for the  Brainstorm group. Feeling a bit more solid with this one than the previous.  Also playing with the lighting so I don’t keep falling into the typical moody back-lit scenario.  #art #painting #digital #studio #sketch #lighting #shadow #environment #conceptart #level #building #mountain #design #gameart #atmosphere #dylanpierpont #photoshop #photo #photobash #ancient #ruins #sunset #ancientruins

Spent some time today working on a comp for this Brainstorm facebook group.  We were given a topdown view of a hypothetical level in a game, and then we had to pick a location in the level along with a vantage point and do a value comp. Not too thrilled with some of the design choices I made but it was a fun exercise none the less. #art #painting #digital #studio #sketch #lighting #shadow #environment #conceptart #level #building #mountain #design #gameart #atmosphere #dylanpierpont #photoshop #photo #photobash #ancient #ruins #sunset #ancientruins

Got a break today so I fooled around on some environment concepts. Kept is pretty free-form and exploratory. And I recorded the whole thing to my livestream!
