Kalistan Matte Painting: uni by GDSWorld Kalistan Matte Painting: uni by GDSWorld
Final Matte painting for my uni assignment.

1.5million polygons.
Greeble used for surface details

Using a mixture of 3d forground and 2d planes I composited this scene.
Post production was done in After Effects.

This was an establishing shot leading onto the next video where we had to remove the green channel.

You can see this animated here: [link]

Breakdown here: [link]

All stocks used in the establishing shot were from cgtextures.com

i see. but if it was, it'll still be cool. its got that sort of narrative potential. can basically just fit any scenario to it and still be sufficiently powerful

what is Kalistan?

GDSWorld Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Khalistan (Not Kalistan) is a movement started by Sikhs after the 1984 holocaust in India.
Sikhs wanted a place they could call their own. This was just a vision of what such place
could look like.

I've took inspirations from Indian culture to come up with this design.

place they could call their own?..they had punjab for that...
n m sorry to say...none of the indian cultures would look like this...
No doubt you have crafted the picture well..good work!
But this is actually looking very dark n dull, if u wanna show it as a civilization, its looking like the ruins after some massive war. You should show it as colorful, lively, vibrant place, if you wanna show :) .

How can you be so sure what the future would look like?
This was my vision for the concept and thats how I imagined it
and no, I didn't want to show civilization or lively colours
you'd have to read my whole university thread to grasp the story behind
this piece but belive me this is quite close to how I imagined it ;)

u did try to show a culture there and it's quite dull for that...believe me....the colors 'are' dull and dark

ur dull and dark..but we still "let u be"... its his artwork..critique not destruct

and as for ur comments on the issues surrounding 1984..u don't sound like ur that informed abt the situation so lets keep ur views to urself.."they had punjab".. its quite interesting that u would use past tense.. altho it kinda proves the point.. they "had" it..may be before the british came..but not since then

The point of this post is just to show you that, *gdsworld could have picked apart everything and anything u said but he didn't.. so next time wen someone asks for a critique.. be respectful cuz most probably they have put there heart and soul into it.. after all it is called art for a reason :)

I am well familiar with the 1984 situation, as FYI I am from Punjab as well. And you sound like you don't feel that you belong to the country named 'India'..you think that Punjab doesn't belong to it's people now?..Punjab was always thr for sikhs..then why do get to the extremes everytime about making your own place, country/state based on a religion?.in what world are you living...too narrow.

And as for the artwork, someone else as said below...that it looks an exterminated atmosphere...n that's what i said, that it looks like that.Remember, its a work about a place fr people...

Anyways its nothing new that people are still divided in their minds in terms of religion. It's sad.
