Castle of Valleyfield at dawn by fstarno Castle of Valleyfield at dawn by fstarno
Hi everyone,

This matte-painting freelance artwork is actually a print project for now, but the client would like to eventually do a TV commercial. That's why the picture ratio of this image is not conventional to films and television.

The college of Valleyfield is a school based in Montreal, Canada area. They wanted to do a fantastic style matte-painting with the whole building.

We have been into a 2 weeks concept art process and then, realize the final image. The longest part was to erase all the trees in front of the main facade. The rest was not too bad. There is no 3D elements, only photoshop job.

I worked around 40 hours on this project, including all the concept arts and also a different version with no waterfalls but a canal with a different bridge for a poster.

Feel free to comments and ask question.

Thanks

Frederic St-Arnaud

This is beautiful! The only problem is that it needs more fog. Any fall that big is going to have a bunch of fog. Sorry for the comment....
