It's actually quite funny how I got the idea for this image... some weeks ago a good friend of mine complained to me that the Coca Cola Christmas Truck is not coming through her town this year, and that she would have loved to see it, because of all the stuff that's going on then...and then for christmas my little cousin got a miniature model of it, and I thought, why not take a photo of it and make this a matte painting and send it to my friend...
Please note, that's a matte painting
....I used both photos and painting methods... you can see the basic photo that I took here
. It took me a while, and lots of layers until I had the final result, but I am quite happy with it... it does not have this photo realisitic look that matte paintings usually have, but hey, it's my first real matte painting, so be easy on me
I welcome any critiques and suggestions on how to make that better though
Thanks to everybody who helped me with suggestions and crits on that!
I hope you enjoy it
