So lots a couple of people were asking me to do a tutorial. I didn't know they are so hard because I find them kind of a pain in the ass to do , probably because I have never done one.

sorry for the big file size , but I will upload the actual painting by itself probably tomorrow , still some minor touch ups I forgot to handle

Any ways this is a basic approach of to how I would approach a landscape environment either at work or something personal at home

you can view a bigger version of the actual painting here

please don't think this is the only to do it for there are many , i am by no means an expert on the matter so whatever I say is not fact , its just my opinions and approaches to how i do it

lasso tool and gradient tool can be your friend if used correctly. I feel its important to not zoom into the details to early on and not rely on custom brushes. They are all just tools at the end of the day. So learning to paint things from scratch is always makes for a better artist in my opinion, and if you want to paint things from scratch you need reference.

if you want the full size just download it

thanx for looking

No need to explain here, it's all on the image. Just like the brushes, if this helps, please fav and support it so more people can see it. Thank you!

EDIT: IMPORTANT

When you go to the BLUR step, just do a normal BLUR effect. No gaussian blur, or motion blur. Just blur. I messed up when I wrote 15%

Here is a tutorial for another environment. Again my word is not the end all be all. This is just a way I tend to think and approach environments.

If it helps I will release a brush pack with my brushes that I currently use. I don't really think yall would need it , but if enough people say they want it then I'll upload it

Been learning a lot and practicing non stop! : )

until next time

-k-

sidenote: I wrote in the tutorial that you cannot polish a turd ( read the tutorial and you will understand the context of that statement) lol

however :iconiamnie: has showed me a link on myth busters proving otherwise > [link]

so i stand corrected lol :)

Ok, since I get so many questions about tutorials and vides - here's an overdue tutorial of my Museum painting. I know it's not that exciting and that it's a bit out of date but I hope this will answer at least some of your questions!

And btw, it is BIG so it's probably best to download and browse on your computer.

Stay tuned!

BEGINNERS : THIS IS A SHORTCUT METHOD. fundamentals are still more important. :)

EDIT EDIT : i changed the title to matte painting : / though it's really not, as actual matte paintings are very time consuming and painstaking pieces.

EDIT : i'm surprised at all the bashing that'd been going on for this simple tutorial. it's not THE way to paint, it's just a quick and dirty way to get things done/get an idea across. someone asked that i showed them this technique, and so i thought to share it here.

photos and textures are sometimes used in art pieces, and especially when the piece is to be done fast. matte paintings, which are longer and more painstaking to do, also uses photographs.

Updated description written in April 2013:
This is a funky tutorial I made back in the day before I learned how to paint with straight-up color. These days I'd recommend using these filters for COLOR CORRECTION ONLY, not painting an entire image with them like I do here in the tutorial. Still, the tutorial serves its purpose to introduce you to how powerfully helpful adjustment layers are.

Enjoy all the same!
