Matte sketch

Christmas is over and weekend starts.. Time to continue with this self-directed matte painting course with a simple painting.
This is a sketch of a matte painting and I made it just as a planar image with no intension of 3d projection - better to start with simple things and then move to more advanced topics.
I'm actually working with my laptop so things are a bit slow, but at least it forced me to start with a small sketch. So when I start to make the actual matte, I will create a new image and use this as a reference.

Comments and most of all critique is welcome at this point, now that I'm still working with sketch and big changes are still easy to make.

Cheers, Petri.J


  1. Good stuff. Legendary matte snow theme. I'd maybe push platform's horizon line down just a little bit. It looks like it's not in sync with the mountain on the right side.


  2. Hi
    cool blog :)

    Maybe you can add some clouds in the sky, and add some shadow on the left mountain (the buildings are a little too bright imo)
