Hey everyone, this is my first time on the forums, and I am excited for things to come. I am a graphic design student in london ontario. I am familiar with pretty much the entire Adobe CS, but I would have to say that I am most accustomed to illustrator.
I am very interested in matte painting but I am a little confused on what exactly it is, and what kind of techniques people use to create these wonderful images.
Up until now I have done all my Photoshop/illustrator work by mouse, but now I have a nice new tablet which I have been playing around with, I can tell this will really speed up my workflow as well as let me dive into the world of digital art, more specifically digital painting.
If anyone can bring me up to speed or direct me to a good place to start, that would be awesome.
