I had the opportunity to create a matte painting for an animated film. Semi-realism was important and the image started as a composite of dozens of separate photos. Texture samples from some photos were used to create brushes to ‘paint’ with. After a general layout was approved, the collage was then heavily painted over to build a cohesive image used in the final shot. The people in the image were eventually replaced with CG models in the style of the film.
