Welcome to the Digital Matte Painting forum!


Hi guys,

I’m Richard, 22 just graduated from a specialist illustrations degree. I’m based in London and I’m pursuing digital matte painting and hope to make it my profession. As well as mattes I also do a little wildlife painting in the old traditional mediums. I very much look forward from learning from you all.


Hiya all, wohoo first post on cgtalk!

Im Johan, 20 yo from sweden studying game graphics. but im thinking abot aspiring to become a mattepainter, the little i’ve done so far has been much more fun than the usual uvwmapping and whatnots that comes with doing 3d for games.



I buy a ebook obout matte painting by 2Dartist from Tiberius Viris. And why have alot to learn about that stuff.He is a big artist. I work with photoshop,painter and bryce.I ame a newbie in that stuf and spent a hole day for to learn.

Hi everyone this is a great thread. I wish I had stumbled onto it sooner!:cool:


My name is Tim, I trained as a traditional animator and worked at EA for a couple of years. My real passion is drawing and painting, and I studied oil painting at a school in South London. Recently that came to an end and I have been developing a Matte portfolio. I hope at some point to get work in a post production house in London. I’ve been using CGtalk for ages but only just found the Matte section!

Hello Everyone,
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.
