This piece was made in photoshop and composited into nuke. 

The process of making this into a 2.5D matte painting was different than how I did it from other projects based on certain nodes used to make parts of the matte painting more 3D.

By adding a "Displace Geo" node on a card, I was able to make the mountains more 3D without having to project them onto a 3D model, there for saving time. It took the darkest values and made them recede and the lighter values protruded.
