Jupiter model matte painting



This was matte painting in the good old days. I painted a 3 foot model of the planet Jupiter for a German FX company. I used Gauche which was great because it had a nice shine but was much faster drying than other colours.

The planet model was filmed later using a motion control camera. Painting more than a week on that model almost drove me nuts, so I finally added my name somewhere in the cloud formations near the big red spot ;-)

Those were the days before Internet and CG, so we had to rely for information in books and TV. Please note the book with NASA photos that I used for references.

Sorry for the bad image quality...but it was way beyond digital photography ;-)

Thanks for watching,

Jack Moik
