Matte Painting Challenge: Alien Landscape

I had this crazy idea to see if people on Video Copilot wanted help create some stuff for an new tutorial about an alien planet that may or may not resemble the one from the upcoming Prometheus film.

Basically we filmed a short scene where Sam is running from some destruction followed by really bad things and one of the shots we need is the one above. As scary as the palm trees look, I was hoping to replace with some mountains and dark sky and something inspired by the Prometheus film to help complete the world.

Now, if I had a little bit of help doing the background I could start working on the other stuff and we’ll just make it a lot better! Plus it would be fun to bring the community together participate in the tutorials, right? Of course your name in the credit and we will even feature some of the best ones on the site for all to see. Plus if you help, I might be able to get this thing done sometime this year!

Directions/Suggestions:

– Replace everything above the horizon like sky and mountains of a desolate planet.
– Design at HD or larger
– I’d like to keep the blue tones for the foreground
– Post a link to your work when you are finished.
– Have fun and be creative!!

The deadline is JUNE 15th!!
