Ron Crabb's Matte Painting Project: Start to Finish
with Ron Crabb
Motion picture matte painter and fine artist Ron Crabb gives an inside look at how he recreated a seaport town that has long since vanished in his masterful painting of the old Port Blakely Mill, "Milltown Morning." In this installment of Start to Finish, join Ron as he walks through the remains of the old mill town, explains his in-depth historical research, and skillfully brings an entire town to life using Cinema 4D, Photoshop, and his amazing talent as a painter and illustrator. The end product is an astonishingly detailed painting that crosses the gap between digital and fine art.
