This is my first attempt at any sort of mattepainting. For those of you who don't know what that is, it consists of combining photo-manipulation techniques with painting. About 9 hours total.
There was one main plate, and other numerous photos used for texture and debri, and extra buildings.
The smoke and monster are completely painted, and if you can't tell, then I did my job well. Personally I don't feel like he fits entirely just yet, but this is for school, and I can't afford any more time on it.P.S
.... Since they released the toy pictures, I can tell you that my design is not just off... but completely off! Yay!
