Today in our VFX lesson we learned about Matte Painting. In film this is where most of a scene is not actually there; the background is fabricated and there is very little real footage. We had a go of making our own, the themes we could do were apocalyptic, cityscape, jungle, fantasy, and so on.
What i decided to do was a sort of overgrown city. So i searched for photos of abandoned buildings, and pictures of jungles. I still need to add a few more structures to it, but i think it went well.
