LCV instructor Angel Torrella took this perfect opportunity to show student how do Matte Painting using a pan & Tablet system, creating seamless and astonishing images. A matte painting is a painted representation of a landscape, that allows graphic artists to alter, manipulate and create the illusion of an environment that is not present at the actual location. This technique is widely used on graphic design, animation and in the film industry.
In the example picture, Angel used matte painting techniques in Photoshop to alter the picture of a historical Vancouver landmark – Vancouver Art Gallery. You can see the before and after images in the animated gif above.
