Lesson 4 of 4 Intro to Matte Painting

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.
