And finally, here come the final version of this matte painting.
I made small adjustements on the painting, added some details to the 3D geometry and made the final compositing in Nuke.
I learned a lot of new techniques during all the process of creation and I hope you will enjoy it.
(Thanks to Blogspot's video treatment for killing all my color correction.)

First mapping test.
I test the animation of the camera in order to see which part of the geometry need more details. In this case we can see some small white areas around the background mountain and I need to add a little more edge on the cliff of the foreground mountain too.
Here is the first step of the creation of the camera map system in Maya.
I use the painting made in photoshop as an image plane and I create a simple rough geometry which will receive the matte painting projection.
Let's try to keep it as simple as possible and let the matte painting work for us.
