Adidas commercial – matte painting

I had worked on a commercial project last term with a film student Gevorg – a talented 21 years old director. XD He has an awesome sfx team and he showed me some of the fx in progress ~ I think it’s awesome so I joined their team and helped developing the background for the commercial.

Spent about 3~4 weeks on the modern city background and here is the end result. It’s really awesome and I feel honored to be part of this project. 🙂 They are working on the sfx break down video and they will post it online later.

Environment (experimental)

This is an experimental (happy accident) project.
The technique was from our department chair Scott Robertson.
He asked us to use a custom brush (any kind with interesting shapes) and messed around. Then zoom in and use your imagination to find interesting shapes and composition.
I made it too complicated so this was the only one that I think it’s workable.

then I was trying to learn Sparth style ~ but I think I still need to improve my environment painting skills .__.

I haven’t taken any environment classes yet >

We need to do a painting for our environment design class ~
I did the base design referencing crabs photos and I was trying to learn and copy a Korean concept artist Jaecheol Park’s composition/style/colors/lighting.
You can check out his website: http://www.paperblue.net/

The foreground needs to add some colors….I m gonna fix it ……later =v=
