The focus of this class is to take the matte painting skills you have, and apply them to the real world scenarios you might encounter working at a studio. The goal is that by the end of the class each you will have completed several matte paintings that demonstrate a solid technical understanding of what modern matte painting entails.
Students will have the opportunity to set up and paint a variety of shots, from 2D to more complex 3D shots as well as learn the tricks to bring those paintings to life. Just as every studio has a different workflow, students will also gain a basic knowledge of working with different color pipelines, cameras and plates and learn how to adapt while creating their shots.
This class is geared for intermediate to advanced Photoshop users with some Nuke compositing and 3D modeling skills in Maya, or industry professionals who want to enhance their toolset.
“ I must say after your class I am a lot more comfortable understanding aspects that I used to be lost in. Now I can apply them to my own matte paintings. ”
