Ballistic has proudly announced that the 240 paged d’artiste: Matte Painting 3 is now available for pre-order.
Ballistic has handpicked three Master Artists - David Luong, Damien Macé, and Milan Schere - to teach their timeless and award-winning Matte Painting techniques. Together these digital wizards have dozens of Hollywood blockbusters, TV shows and hit games to their credit, such as World of Warcraft, Game of Thrones, Diablo 3, Harry Potter and Avatar. The trio bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to Matte Painting 3, which covers everything from concept, to painting and 3D techniques and tricks, to the stunning completion of complex environments.
One of the many highlights is a foreword by Michael Pangrazio, the award winning, traditional and digital matte artist famous for his outstanding work Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back, who is currently Senior Art Director at Weta Digital. Additionally, the three authors pick his brain in an extensive Q and A.
