Some of my shots ended up in the trailer as well! The movie will be out in September, go and see it!!! (ps. It was a great experience, had the chance to work with some awesome artists such as Robin Konieczny, Rob Andrews, Antoine Moulineau, Guy Williams and many others)

Click here to see some new paitnings I made at the art camp of Hajós this summer. As always, it was a pleasure working together with my friends, Öcsi Balogh, Feri Farkas, my lovely girlfriend Ilona Istvánffy, and last but not least Italian master Matteo Massagrande. He's inspiring us all.

"The world is always changing. Each year new species and adaptations alter the balance of their ecosystems. Filmed on location in Shikoku, Japan, this VFX intensive short film offers a first glimpse into the world of Dust."

Dust is a short film currently in post-production. It's a really cool project, check out the website of the film.

Also, If you want to support the film and get cool prizes for your help go to the Dust Kickstarter page.

Yes, there will be some matte paintings in the film by me :)

Sorry for not updating my site for such a long time. I've been super busy with working on Total Recall. 

The trailer of the film is gonna hit the net very shortly. I was also a bit lazy, because I still have some drawings from my London sketchbook that I always forgot to upload. So here are a few more :) More update soon!

I made this piece for a CGTantra digital matte painting challenge. The topic was "across the rooftops". We had to make a night time scene, with full moon-cloudy sky.

Another matte painting from Arad. This time it's a cooperative effort of myself and Nick Giassullo. (The painting may seem distorted, but it's gonna be projected back onto geometry.)

I've made this piece for the Marine Island matte painting contest over at CGChallenges.org  I won the 1st place!

One of my friends, who happens to be a writer, gave me a description of a location in his novel. I've drawn several sketches on paper, then made a tonal sketch and started matte painting. I've worked mostly in Photoshop but I also used Maya for the architecture and Mudbox for some details.
