Building upon the foundation of his first two DVDs, Dylan takes you through the entire matte painting process, from pencil sketch to color study to final rendering. He demonstrates many techniques he uses in production, from various types of photo manipulation to hand painting methods. Many challenges are addressed, such as skies, water, architecture, linear perspective and atmospheric perspective. You will also learn how to relight a painting as Dylan transforms a daylight scene into a sunset shot. As an added bonus, the original photo references and the final Adobe Photoshop® file are included in this DVD-ROM.
