Sherazade: The Untold Stories - matte paintings

Sherazade: The Untold Stories. I had a pleasure to help out on few matte paintings for the TV series. First one is painted on top of the 3d rendering and depicts Golden City - location in the series ( two lighting scenarios ). The second one was used in number of shots in the desert - painting was used as 360 degrees panorama. Client: Chocolate Liberation Front.


Sherazade: The Untold Stories is produced for Network Ten (Australia), ARD represented by RBB (Germany) and is being distributed by Telepool/Global Screen. The first thirteen episodes launched in early 2016.

Kreola psd file GUMROAD

Another Photoshop file on Gumroad of a matte painting titled Kreola - it was a competition hosted on CG Society. It was shortlisted in top 10 entries list. Within the file you will find 3d renders that served as a base for this work. Layers are named and grouped for easy navigation within the stack. By scrutinizing this file you will be able to learn my techniques.
