matte painting tutorial by Der-Reiko matte painting tutorial by Der-Reiko
It took a while but now my tutorial is ready =)

I try to explain the process of creating a mattepainting, including
basic painting technics, using 3d elements and composing them inside your painting as well some ways of color-
grading. Please donīt hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Hey! I'm a 3d-visual effects artist and this is huge! I'm confused- how could you work in 6k x 3k without stretching a lot of pixels in the image you used? Did you have to paint over those, too? How can I import this scene back into cinema 4d/ after effects and make some camera movements?

I streched the images, but I repainted the lost detail (which is relatively easy when the surrounding already fits). But in most of the cases I simply tried to find images in the right resolution. 
If you want to have camera movement applied to a shot, I would suggest a simple layering method. Foreground, midground, background on different layers (maybe 5 or 6). For a complex shot like that(with a midground reaching from a far to a near plane)  or one with a more dynamic camera movement, you need to create more geometry than I did here, map your painted textures on it or even remodel the detail completely..

Love the tutorial! Was just wondering how you imported the 3D model into the photoshop composition from Cinema 4D? Hope you can help! :)

There is no imported model, unfortunately, the photoshop raytracer sucks, compared to "real" 3D tecchnology, so I just rendered *.tifs out of cinema 4D and used them instead. Hope that helps :)
