October Challenge! - Desert Dunes

CHALLENGE OPEN 2019-10-01T07:00:00Z2019-12-01T08:00:00Z

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the first monthly challenge! You have until the end of the month to work on your submission. The best submission will receive a prize! (TBC what that is).

The challenge this month is to take the image below and turn it into a photographic matte painting. What makes this seriously cool is that this image was generated by an A.I.! This means it’s up to you to interpret exactly what is seen in this image and show us the best recreation you can muster!


I suggest starting with a good base for the sky and working forward from that. Notice that the sky is quite murky like high cloud cover but there is still some direct lighting on the dunes which are creating somewhat hard shadows in the environment.

To help you out on this challenge, we’ve uploaded over 200 photo’s of deserts and dunes! Just check out the links and gallery screenshot of what awaits you!

Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Yes :v: , and I was very happy to participate, the matte painting technique is new to me. I already knew in theory, but I’m learning a lot here in practice. I have always enjoyed shooting nature and I am really loving the great talents you have here.
hug dear!
