Matte Paintings // The Valley

Today I planned on making two matte paintings and changing one to look more “dead” without having to do a lot of extra work. I made the living world first and then began striping away the saturation and color. I also had to destroy two waterfalls. This was a lot of fun and I feel pretty good about them.

The Flood is in the middle of post production / sneak peak


This movie has to be finished by Tuesday the 21st and I am about half way finished with the post production and compositing. Many of the scenes have had some really problematic footage which required a lot of time to stabilize and color correct the problems. I wanted to share a few stills from the movie in the meantime. Thanks for checking it out.




Strangest Baptism Animation Concept.

I am not really sure what I was thinking. I might take this idea somewhere else. There are these tall 3d stone looking towers with text on it. I like the environment look and I really think it will look cool if it were to be animated. Anyway, here it is, take a look.

I just wanted to get this design out there. Chaz did a good job with the logo and I think achieved the light streak technique he was going after. I had to make some wallpapers for the group and get a blog up for them by this weekend. Check out more of the designs at jointherhythm.com. I made a post last week, you might remember, the vector web badges. I used one of those to make a web badge for this group.

You can enter once ever day to up your chances to win the Wacom Cintiq 21ux. I have been thinking about getting one of these tablets for a while. They are usually $1,999 which is a bit expensive, but I think worth it. I currently use a 9×12 Intous 3 Tablet. I would never try painting in photoshop without it. I think the possibilities are endless with direct interaction with your digital canvas on a screen. Makes so much more sense. This competition is being offered by SnapVillage, a source for royalty-free images. The drawing will be September 5. Anyway, enter in the competition and good luck. Click Here.

Yes, these are designs for a blackoutgraphics client, but i thought I would share it anyway. I like where they are going, I just need to finish them. Please feel free to let me know what you think. This is a really high end interior designer looking for something artistic. Her main request was black with her logo red.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Free Photoshop Texture Brush

It is nearly unbelievable to me that someone would make such a hi-res brush set available for free. The download file is 65MB. Yeah, it was so big, my download timed out. We are talking about 2500px brushes here. It’s good stuff. Take a look. I find these handy when you need to overlay a texture on something, or you just need a good pattern as a background.

Download the brushes here.
