No need to PM me, I've seen the deadline, but I just got a new toy (upgrade from CS2 Design Standard to CS4 Design Premium) so I've spent my time on Flash this weekend which is quite new for me. (But it had a little to do with matte ;-)) Promise to finish my matte in the coming 2 evenings though.

Hi, my name's Nikita [trainfender] Buyanov and I'm from Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
This challenge was great experience for me. I finally started to paint from scratch
this work's done in about 25 hours with the help of photoshop cs2, 3dsmax 2009 and V-Ray.
here's WIP thread - http://forums.3dtotal.com/showthread.php?t=66038
and the fullsize picture - http://trainfender.indee.ru/threedy/threedy_final.jpg

Name: Joe Melton

Description of image: Nighttime image of medieval street, gateway to castle courtyard. Had to rush the lighting/shadowing toward the end...real life got in the way of my plans for this one.

Technical details: I created the image entirely in Photoshop CS3, with the assistance of my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet.

Well, time's up, so here's the final:

(Click image for 2000px wide version)

Hope you like it, thanks to all who replied in the W.I.P. thread on this forum and thus helped creating this image.

I used several images which were released under the Creative Commons license and learnt a few things on the road. (Amongst others: Make a sketch before you start!)

Hope you enjoy the final result as much as I did making it.

Post Final Entry!

Hi Everyone,

My name: Kaustav Sinha



Short description of the image: Being a huge fan of LOTR trilogy myself, I tried to give an epic feel to this mattepainting! Here, a warrior is seen staring at this massive castle, where he was destined to travel to find something precious!

Technical details: It took me approximately 10 hours to complete this digital matte painting! I have used Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended software to do it. I always do my mattes using a mouse; no graphic tablet!

WIP link is here

Wishing all the contestants best of luck for the results!
