One of the many shots the matte painting department got to work on for DIablo III. I worked with many of the other matte team for this shot. As well as many of the rest of the cinematic team. I was responsible for most of the 3d stuff and most of the compositing done by the matte team.
The behind the scenes stuff is of us throwing flower and baking soda around to photograph. We then color corrected the photos and used them in the final matte paintings for some of the Diablo III cinematics.
