After painting few pieces for weekly Conceptart.org environments I decided to have a go with another matte painting competition on CG Channel. This time it is based on one of my favorite movies - Peter Jackson's King Kong. Plate was given by host Johnathan Berube and here is my concept painting. Matte painting should take at least a week to finish especially as I will need to create high resolution model for the foreground as I'm planning move camera forward few meters. For the piece you see here I used some basic 3d created in 3d max rest was painted in Photoshop using Wacom tablet.
