Gnomon releases Matte Painting Techniques for Concept Design

The Gnomon Workshop has released Matte Painting Techniques for Concept Design, a new five-hour masterclass recorded by World War Z and Wrath of the Titans artist Francesco Corvino.

The video, which is available as a direct download – and shortly, a DVD – for $59, explores a workflow for creating photorealistic environments that integrates 2D and 3D tools: in this case, Maya, V-Ray and Photoshop.

Starting from a rough sketch, Corvino models a 3D scene in Maya, lights and and renders it in V-Ray, then adds people, props and other detail in Photoshop, using a combination of photo manipulation and direct painting.
