Foliage Matte Paintings
The third required matte painting. Instructions were a little more clear. I altered my workflow to start with a basic sketch and establish a pallete before beginning color. From there, I lay down a quick base, and went from section to section, adding detail. I hand-drew most of the leaves, but also created special "leaf" brushes to create a base for the large areas. The piece took over 20 hours to finish.
This piece was well received by my instructor.
