references for matte painters
1. Borderlands - few things worth mentioning about this one. The mountains furthest away lose all details due to atmosphere leaving nothing but a strong silhouette. Note the shape of the horizon line.
2. Team Fortress 2 - This is more about shape and inner details. Note the variations in diffuse color and value in the layers of rocks.
3. Brush strokes are visible in the textures.
Color variation here is pretty nice too.
4. Borderlands - The pencil line stroke around the edges of the rocks are also important. Hatchmarks on the rocks on the right side are particularly sexy... (ive never said that about a sediment before)
5. Interesting. Shapes.
