Convergence by Rahll Convergence by Rahll
Put this matte painting together in my spare time, an hour here and there when I needed to take a break from film work. I've been watching a series called How The Earth Was Made, and it inspired me with all its epic geology.

I made a wallpaper pack for anyone who wants it. Because it's so wide, though, it might not be the crop you want, so I included a higher res version so you can crop it yourself if you wish.

1024x768
1280x1024
1440x900
1600x1200
1680x1050
1920x1200


Hope you like it!

P.S. Listened to this while painting it.

I don't understand how you do this. It looks like a photo.

Just to clarify, a matte painting uses photo elements. I wrote an article a couple years back when there was some controversy regarding matte paintings, so maybe that might interest to find out a little more about them :) [link]

I remember that series, though I never managed to see the whole thing :/

This is amazing though - the shadows and light make it seem so realistic, like a photograph :) Also, I don't know if I'm seeing this correctly, but those little figures in the snow look like people.

How you PAINTED this is beyond me, the smallest details are so freaking amazing, I can't even fathom this... Looks like I'm replacing my cute cat background with this. Amazing.

I downloaded this for the background on my computer, and the readme file made me laugh so hard... x'D Love it. And this is very realistic, I basically repeat everything the person below me said...

The amount of talent shown in this painting is HUMONGOUS. I have no idea how you do it, but you do.
Seriously, the only thing that convinced me that this is a painting, not a photograph is the falling snow that's meant to look as if it were moving too fast to look like a flake.
I deeply admire you, and this is a breathtaking piece.
WOW. Unbelievable.
