About this eBook

This eBook is a result of many requests to explain how I go about creating my photographic illustrations (digital matte paintings) and what inspires me to start and eventually complete them.

A matte painting is a painted representation of a landscape, set, or distant location that allows filmmakers to create the illusion of an environment that would otherwise be too expensive or impossible to build or visit. Historically, matte painters and film technicians have used various techniques to combine a matte-painted image with live-action footage. At its best, depending on the skill levels of the artists and technicians, the effect is “seamless” and creates environments that would otherwise be impossible to film.

In my case, I don’t make these for film but as personal projects. Up till now I have not combined techniques, but have used photos exclusively – which means no CGI, all of which I have photographed myself.

If you wish to take this route, it is well worth building up a large photo stock library of your own that contains all the elements you would like to use in your own matte paintings. If you wonder what to photograph, just ask yourself what things or objects typically interest you. Personal projects are really about showing the world who you are, what your likes and interests are, and what inspires you.
