Matte Paintings

For Gutterdämmerung: The Loudest Silent Movie on Earth, I designed over 30 matte paintings, many of which were combined with live-action footage or 3D elements. These layered 2D digital backgrounds were handed over to the VFX studio in Paris for the final result. All were created in 4k at least.
