This is a stitched together view I just did for the fun of it. There are tree major background paintings I did for this shoot, there are a few others as well but these took the most sweat and bother to create. Each one was painted on a 4' x 7' sheet of wood with no effort to make each end match perfectly to the next. I didn't bother to match them end to end because I figured they would never be seen in the same shot so, why knock myself out? Eventually, curiosity got to me to see what the entire stitched together vista would look like, so I rephotographed the three of them and Photoshoped them into one. click on the image to get a larger view.

Absolutely amazing... Not only is the matte painting really beautifully crafted, the digital stitch is seamless as well!

Whoah... Phenomenal work, Ron!

Now I need to go looking for my jaw. I heard it hit the floor, and then it seems to have just rattled off somewhere... Cat's probably got it now.

Wait, this is a real painting? Not a digital painting? This is so beautiful. You are a talented man!

21 feet wide of REAL paint, I like doing digital 'paint' but cheating is too easy. Never really as proud of anything done in the computer as I am of the many works I've created by spraying and smearing colors with brushes. No 'undo' easy button, just gotta get it right or suffer the consequences.
