Matte painting requires to focus and combine the images making abilities. Rather than find a photograph to begin building an image from, I created a sketch that depicts overall composition and lighting. Once my sketch and under-painting is fleshed out, I created with the necessary photographic, graphic, 3d, and/or illustrated elements to produce Melting City. I illustrated the flooded city where it covers with water and ice.
