Thanks for this David! A lot of very cool stuff in one place! Awesome!

I have suggestion that also might be useful for reference/textures and that is deviantArt. With little bit of searching under photography a lot of nice images is possible to find. Also if in the keywords is included "stock" a lot of free stuff pops out or at price of author's credit and link to his dA profile, so definitely worth checking out in my opinion.

Also there is livestream channel of one of my favorite artists - Levente "Levi" Peterffy. He has there quite a bit of recorded live sessions so definitely something to check out even though it's not exactly matte painting but those skills are still absolute necessary so...Not to mention that what he recorded there is super beautiful stuff and + for free on top of that.

While i'm at live streams there is this one awesome page a recently found out --> http://livestreamstatuslist.appspot.com
It shows when someone is online and painting live. The best part is that when someone is online and you like what is he/she painting there you can join in the chat and ask questions about it, discuss things between users online and the artist and all that there live.
If you click on that button "Show Complete List..." you see there a LOT of streams!

So far, for any beginner like myself, i highly recommend two guys there to check out and keep an eye if they are online. Cool thing about those guys is that unlike others they have microphone and they talk about art and their experience and not type in chat something short. Super interesting when you catch them online live!

JohnSilva -> http://www.livestream.com/johnsilva

This might not be directly DMP stuff but still it is useful when learning painting. I know it is for me since i am also in the middle of learning DMP techniques.

Cheers!

Sure thing!

I was planning on creating a shared repository for reference images. This repository is strictly images taken by the artist themselves and no images from the internet.

However I really don't have a hosting site to support those files.... so I am looking for hosting alternatives...

Also one small note ackdoh, my website is www.ericdmatte.com just a small typo there and thanks for adding me I will also post my updated reel soon...

Few useful free tutorials here --> http://www.escapestudios.com

Under E-learning and then on "Free Tutorials" section you'll find a bunch of nice Maya tutorials but two of them particularly interesting: "Bring a photo to life with camera mapping in Maya" and "Using paint effects to 'bed' geometry into backplates".

Registration is required to enter on E-learning but it's free and only few seconds of time so...

Cheers!

Emmy 2013

Hey Ken,
As I see Game of Thrones and Borgias both received Emmy nominations for VFX.
Congratulations. Those are some good projects to have worked on, I'm sure.

Best Wishes,
Milan
