Fabulous pieces of art masterfully created by +Tanya Rochat
 
Thank you for all the positive comments I have received the last few weeks

I had numerous requests to explain how I have done it and have a pdf that I would love to share with you

If you want me to SEND YOU A COPY OF MY WORKFLOW please comment & share this post and I will send it to you personally

This is a quick overview: I first sketched the scene that I wanted to create on paper. From this sketch I created concept art to help me with the element selection. Then I started to look around for the elements to use in the matte painting. Whenever I found something I felt was a potential fit I would photograph it or search for a photo in my (constantly expanding) photography library. Sometimes it would take weeks before I managed to collect all the required elements. Once I had all the elements together it could take another 160+ hours to put it all together. I used Photoshop and also have a Wacom Cintiq which makes the concept art much easier. (Yes I know I could create some elements in software like Maya, Cinema4D, DAZ etc but I wanted to make sure it is all photographic content)

Thank you Sprite Victor. I actually had no idea this check-in would end up on G+. I did this from Google Maps.

Excellent food. Absolutely love the buffet or brunch every day of the week for around 10 bucks. You can't beat it.

Went for the buy one get one free special. Food in restaurant (smoked mozzarella chicken) was okay - a little dry, but fettucini alfredo to go was horrible. The last time we got this deal in March of 2015, you could take home the same dish that you had eaten at the restaurant, and it was a freshly prepared meal. This time it was a refrigerated meal in a to-go container. Won't be visiting Olive Garden again for a while if ever.

Service was fast and friendly! Sat in the outside seating and surfed the web for a while. Very comfortable environment.
