A personal matte painting project, trying to find a proper workflow from 2D to 3D and final compositing in Nuke. Took me a while to get it finished, especially since I was learning Nuke on the way. A big thanks goes to Javier Martín Rodríguez, my matte-painting supervisor at Ilion, who had the patience to train me into Nuke, and also to Adrian Costea, for helping out with the camera export from Max to Nuke (Perspective Match Tool in 3D Max doesn't like Nuke very much...)
P.S. The original photo represents Shushtar, an ancient fortress city located in Iran.
