Original sketch for the architectural layout of the house.

Since this image was to be based on an actual location I did a little research online and found a spot that would fit the description.

This matte painting was actually 2 separate matte paintings, one for the foreground cliff
FG Plate V1

and one for the background mountains.Which were based on a combination of a panoramic photo from Mt.Pilatus and google earth terrain data that I imported into sketchup then exported to 3ds max which is accurate to all the elevations of the background mountains. (but not recommended, the time to cleanup the geometry was substantial!)

All of the elements, along with velocity, zdepth passes and some extra atmosphere, were composed in Nuke.
