Course Curriculum (MW001):-

3D Matte Painting and Environment Design

The goal of this workshop will be to teach you the broad strokes of contemporary 3D Matte-Painting, embracing both 2D and 3D techniques in the process of creating a digital environment.

Working in studios over the last 14 years, I’ve observed the role of a Matte-Painter becoming increasingly more demanding, requiring the artist to be adapt in multiple skills that cross different disciplines. Today the artist has to be able to demonstrate a good understanding of different workflows using 3D programs such as Zbrush, Mari, Vue, World Machine, Maya, 3Ds Max, Vray, Sketchup and more!

Throughout the workshop we will focus on a single primary project that addresses all the skills required to create a single 3D Matte-Painting. Aside from the primary project, we will also look at a number of small mini projects to highlight some of the other tasks a 3D Matte-Painter will often be required to do. Throughout the workshop I will share my experience of working in the VFX field, offering advice and continued mentorship, answering questions and providing continued feedback.

I will demonstrate the workflow and thought process involved in creating a 3D Matte-Painting, using both 2D and 3D techniques, highlighting the importance of understanding many different programs and how together they can increase your ability to produce photorealistic results.

At the end of this workshop, you will hold a portfolio piece that demonstrates the skills required in the field of 3D Matte-Painting, including a firm understanding of the workflow involved.
