Architecture Matte Paintings
The fourth and final required realistic matte painting. I had chosen Art Nouveau style architecture. The assignment was to practice geometric structure and convincing perspective.
I decided to use a different method as before; I started with a sketch, again, but moved onto a grayscale value piece, rather than jump in color. After I decided enough of the image was completed, I added color to the grayscale, and drew over the necessary sections to add texture and variations in color. I couldn't decide if the method was an improvement, or simply another option. The piece took around 16 hours.
