The Matte Painting tutorial is a 39-page guide showing you, over five parts, the basics of Matte Painting, whilst also giving some more advanced techniques in the final chapter. Industry professional Tiberius Viris takes an interesting photograph and creates an easy-to-follow set of tutorials about how to add varying conditions to this - or any other - scene.
This tutorial is aimed at beginners, as well as those who already have some experience with matte painting - advanced knowledge of Photoshop is required in both cases. If you are not familiar with adjustment layers, layer masks or channels (RGB), you should read about these topics prior to starting this tutorial.
