Game of Thrones

HBO's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' TV Show


Game of Matte Paintings

German matte painting artist Sven Sauer has shared an article from a German digital painting magazine that ended up having unprecedented access to Pixomondo, the international digital effects company responsible for the award-winning effects of the last two seasons of Game of Thrones. The article focuses on matte paintings, and features quite a few impressive images and details regarding the scope of the use of matte paintings on the show (there’s more than you might realize). Well-worth taking a look at.

The article also includes a video Pixomondo produced featuring some of its effects work on the series, which we’ve embedded below.
