This is based on a photograph.
Simply put, it appear somewhat like coloring.
What is important is that tracing brushstroke and do control details.
L2,Brushstroke pixels(tracing)(it objects surfaces)
L1,Base photograph (do color correction)
Do its best:)

Thanks so much for teaching!!
I understand the L1 AND L3,but not sure about the L2 (Brushstroke tracing). Does it mean you need to draw and paint on top of the photograph and cover the surfaces to make it not like a photograph?
I always have problem with this part, it never looked right and I have no idea what’s wrong.
Im really glad you replied! Thanks!!!!:)

I think so too for L2, it difficult part.
>Does it mean you need to draw and paint on top of the photograph and cover the surfaces to make it not like a photograph?
Yes. Well… how should I say it need get the knack of painting.
For example, it might be a good idea to reference several other works it will help with your work.
On another note, could it be that are you students in USC? I have been to visit there once.

I totally agree, I really enjoy the process of learning everything myself…
The division of animation recently does not offer any specific class on matte painting…. but I do enjoy the self-learning process!
Yoshitaka san!!!!You should be my teacher!!!
