Mohamed (Saw) and his companion Abou Bakr Seddik were being pursued by the Quraychits (Arab tribe). They hid in a cave (taur), and God protected them by placing a spider web at the entrance of the cave ? This is an ancient story from which I was inspired to create this matte painting. I thought to portray the scene with a savage and abandoned environment on a mountain, uninhabited, rocky, with a dark atmosphere and little light ? Technically, for the making of this matte painting, I used material textures and high resolution photographic images and painted with various brushes. I also used Photoshop tools such as styles, layer adjustments, masks, etc. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks!
