Wallpaper Description:
Matte painting practice...
A matte painting is a painted representation of a landscape, set, or distant location that allows filmmakers to create the illusion of an environment . Traditionally, matte paintings were made by artists using paints or pastels on large sheets of glass for integrating with the live-action footage. The first known matte painting shot was made in 1907 by Norman Dawn. By the mid-1980s, advancements in computer graphics programs allowed matte painters to work in the digital realm. The first digital matte shot was created by painter Chris Evans in 1985 for Young Sherlock Holmes . By the end of the 90s, the time of hand-painted matte paintings was drawing to a close, although as late as 1997 some traditional paintings were still being made. Paint has now been superseded by digital images created using photo references.
