this is my first post. And i have been lurking the the forums reading a lot of stuff. Now i guess its time i asked a few doubts. As far as Digital Matte Painting.. i find for myself the actual painting process as far as picking the colors or attacking the highlights , then the shadows are just techniques. Would real life oil painting or other media actually help you learn the painting process? Any other tips on the color and blending and other detailing would help. By the way i am a photoshoper..
Cheers and Good Luck for this forum,
