Mitternacht Chateau

Here I challenged myself to do a night painting from the Call of Duty:United Offensive map called "Chateau". It's played under a full moon, in the night, when it's dark, somewhere in Germany. The facade of this courtyard view is very, very similar to the chateau featured in the WW2 movie "The Dirty Dozen"...including the car in front of the entrance. It was a challenge working with moonlight and incandescent light as light sources.

Check out David Carmack Lewis (in my favorite column) ...great night scenes...and Stephen Magsig "Postcards From Detroit"as well..

Nice work. Great concept using COD as a reference source.
