Im very new to cgsociety. My friend who works in video games directed me here as a resource to get familiar with other people and resources in the areas of digital art that I fancy.
My name is Ryan and Im from Canada. I have a diploma in graphic design and am currently enrolled at the University of the Fraser Valley, working towards my Bachelor of Fine Arts. Im not planning on being an industry matte painter (although I wouldn’t turn down an opportunity) Im planning on becoming a Secondary (High) School art teacher.
Anyways, I have absolutely no history or works to back up my matte painting skills. Im a complete newbie, aside from being inspired by the many works I have witnessed in magazines, websites and in film. Im here with beginner knowledge to learn what I can and start doing matte paintings because I absolutely love the medium and look forward to communicating with other artists while I work on my degree.
Thank you everyone, just for being here and I get the sense that you lot are a very supportive but critical bunch, which is essential to any growth. Any pointers for a complete beginner would be entirely welcome.
Just a technical note.
I use photoshop, learning Corel Painter 9 and I have an Intuos 3 4x6 tablet that I am also getting used to.
Thank you everyone
Glad to be here.
