Photobashing gets a bad rap these days, but Maxx is determined to change that. In this lesson, Maxx will show you his advanced techniques for integrating photos from different sources into a single piece, and how to give them a consistent look and feel. Building upon your concept from the previous lesson, use advanced Photoshop techniques to achieve seamless color, atmosphere, and lighting effects to finish your matte painting.



Take your concept from the previous lesson through the processes covered and create a finished matte painting.

Loved this part of the lesson but I feel I need to go over the last few chapters a few times and repeat the exercise. The color correction is confusing for me and I need more practice was quite frustrating but I kind of started getting the hang of it. Also made a mistake choosing low res images. Will have another bash at using one of the other concepts I did for the first lesson and try again. Thanks for the course!
