I've been working on this matte painting on and off for the past several months. I wanted to create a scene based 100% off of my imagination, rather than editing existing photography. It was modeled using Zbrush and Maya, with the matte itself done in Photoshop. I then projected the image onto the geometry in Nuke, and touched it up in After Effects. The ships were created and animated in Maya, and comped in Nuke. The breakdown documents the grueling process of taking it from nothing to something I think is pretty cool.
