I’ve been checking this site: mattepaintingresource. And I downloaded some pictures as a startingpoint for the following image.
It’s still a work in progress. In the end Seighti (the main character) should be going down the ‘river’ in a kanoo/kayak (I never seem to remember which is which). But at the moment I’m not good enough with color. I can add color-flats no problem. But to go on and add textures or make things look like they have volume. That’s not (yet) my strong point.
I think I want to make this one in a 3D environment, but with painted textures. So the image still has a bit of an 2D animation feel to it. I will probably use blender.
