Nature Unleashed: My First Digital Matte Painting by Turtlegirl90 Nature Unleashed: My First Digital Matte Painting by Turtlegirl90

This is Nature Unleashed, my first ever digital matte painting, which took approximately 4 days. I made this for my final project in my Visual Communications class this summer. I wanted a challenge to create something I have never done before, so I chose to realistically illustrate an impending natural disaster, because I am fascinated yet terrified by mother nature. Thank you very much to the photographers for their beautiful and wonderful stock photos! Nature Unleashed wouldn't be the same without it!

Please comment and leave feedback, would love to hear everyone's critique!

Wish my first effort had looked as good as this (haha - I'm so old my actual first PM was done by cutting out magazine pictures and glueing them together!). Its a great concept and very nicely done, looking forward to seeing more in the future. Good luck with graduating.
