When creating matte paintings, you'll often be asked to completely change the lighting of a scene. While this may seem like a daunting task, Maxx will show you his techniques to do so with relative ease. Using the cityscape created in the previous lesson, you'll learn to do what's called a "day for night," where you'll study the principles of primary and secondary lighting, and add atmospheric and interactive light to your scene.
Transform your city matte painting from the previous lesson into a night scene.
Try doing a matte painting that isn't a city, and see where you can use lights to give life and scale.
