Shannara Chronicles: Sheep matte painting


A 2.5-D matte painting from The Shannara Chronicles, with a bunch of disemboweled sheep. What made this shot unique was that it was mostly hand-painted, without any CG assistance. It's a bit of an old-school analog matte painting technique,  rare in modern VFX, and a service we offer. It can often "feel" more realistic than CG,  while being much more economical to create.
See it in motion on our reel.

Concept Art from The Shannara Chronicles

Some concept art from The Shannara Chronicles from Robot Rumpus and Shutterpunch.

Some early concept for the Changeling, although the final design looked quite different. Originally, it was supposed to look more "fishy," and it ended up being more "goopy." 

..and some environment concepts...

Into the Badlands: The Temple

The steampunk temple we designed for Into The Badlands, episode 6... a fusion of a cathedral and an oil refinery. 

We composited the temple directly over the Griffith Observatory, using the existing building for blocking and eye-line purposes.
