Valinor by geograpcics Valinor by geograpcics
That's my latest matte painting that took me about three days to complete it. The hole inspiration came from an artwork of James Paick with the name "Palace enterance". It's one of the best artworks i've ever seen. I tried to make something very similar to his work to increase my skills with my new graphic tablet.
Thanks for watching

Great composition of architecture and nature, both imposing and fragile, and so precisely drawn - beautiful, really Valinorean picture :)

It looks gorgeous!! But I don't really understand, what's the difference between matte painting and photomanipulation? Aren't you essentially manipulating already existing images?
Reply
:icongeograpcics:
geograpcics Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you. Ok the difference between photomanipulation and matte painting is that you don't manipulate existing images but your own drawing. i start with a draft then i add more details and finally i manipulate images on the existing drawing.

I think that the land of trees was Lothlorien. Valinor was the land of Valars the gods of Silmarilion :)

Yes, you are right, but so am i, because in valinor resided the two sacred trees: Laurelin and Telperion before Morgoth and Ungoliant destroyed them.
