In this video tutorial we go through the entire process of the 3D matte painting workflow. I begin with designing a composition and then get into creating a mood through lighting design. We then go into the modeling process covering how to model the scene keeping in mind that texturing painting will help us achieve most of our look so we don’t over-model our scene unnecessarily.We’ll then go into scene layout and blocking in our scene using our concept as a guide. Creating all our elements and populating the scene with vegetation, people, props and lights. We’ll cover Vray shaders, setting up our lights, creating water, fog and atmosphere and finally rendering out passes that we will use to bring our painting to final, giving us full control of every aspect of the painting.
