Submission rule:

Matte Painting is a photo real approach to combine photographs, 3D and painting techniques to match the plate and replace green/blue screen.

Please do not confuse this with Illustration or concept art.

Successful matte painting in film is indistinguishable from the rest of the scenery.

Online challenges

Does anybody know of a site that host regular challenges? I'd like to better my skills and think online challenges with a brief and a deadline will help me improve. Whenever I do a search the results usually show sites with finished challenges with no new ones.

I need to Matte Paint and Comp 4 tracked back plates and I have no idea where to start or if there is a pipleline I can follow

I am in my final year of university and I decided to focus my final project on Matte Painting and Compositing in general. I have done basic compositing before but I have no experience with matte painting at all and I'm not sure where to start.

My project is basically making these 4 moving back plates (which I'll link a video to here) look Post-Apocalyptic. For example, making the buildings look all run down and making the sky all dark and gloomy. And maybe add some 3D and 2D assets here and there. My main inspirations were that of The Walking Dead and The Last of US.

I guess I'm both trying to ask if this is even possible to get done by early April and also how on earth do I start and is there a general pipeline I can follow?

Here are my 4 Back Plates: https://youtu.be/njRINsX2sgo

Old fashioned matte painting

Is there anyone in this group that does Matte painting by hand? Like in the films made in the '50s through '70s. Would love to see your work.

I don’t know if it’s normal to ask this kind of question

I have purchased the cgma matte painting masterclass. Now I realize i need to purchase mp4fm Garret fry’s camera projection course. My ass is currently dead broke.

This is just me here trying my luck. Maybe. Just maybe, someone might be willing to share his/her login with my broke ass. I know. I know this is hard. I just wanted to put this here. Who knows😭😬
