This was a fun shot. As a matte painter, most of the time my work in a shot is stationary. This was an opportunity to animate my work! In this shot it was the light streaks. Designed and edited in After Effects.
The opening shot for Ice Age Collision Course.Done as a 2D painting in photoshop and then projected and composited into the shot.
I painted everything beyond the tree line. Mountains Valleys Sky and low laying clouds. All projected onto cards and low res geo
For this shot I created everything behind Buck and the first set of foreground rocks.
