Hi everyone,

I have just come to the end of a BA in Digital Media Design and Graphic Communication after many years of waiting to be able to study. I first caught the Matte Painting bug 30 years ago when I saw Star Wars and was lucky enough to receive a long letter from Chris Evans. He has been an inspiration ever since. Now with a family, I have finally managed to take a degree and hope to get a job soon in the film industry as a concept artist or junior matte painter. I currently paint from scratch rather than composite but am practising this method too. I am excited to meet other people who are in the industry or hoping to begin in the industry and am humbled by some of the talent.

Hey there fellow artists
i stumbled over this forum and was really impressed by these challenges and their well known judges ;)
So i decided to give the set extension challenge a try :D
A bit of information about myself (if you are interested ;) ):
I am a currently 19 year old vfx-artist from Germany, working at Pixomondo Images as a 3D Intern and i really want to get into mattepainting (at the moment i am mostly doing general 3D work, mainly texturing, shading, and matchmoving)
but since i have always drawn a lot i think mattepainting is the perfect deal for me between 3D and 2D painting.
So lets see where i can get with a lot of practice and the challenge is a nice way to improve my mattepainting knowledge. :)
thanks alot for holding the challenge and keeping the forums running.
cheers
Björn

Good Morning from Portland, Oregon. Where today, it is a crisp 37 degrees. Not bad for Spring weather in the Northwest.
I am orignally for Westport, Connecticut. Have travelled domestically and internationally throughtout my career as a concept artist.
I started my career as an illustrator, moved to graphic design and eventually into digital media.
I was fortunate to be one of the first corporate artists chosen to beta test photoshop for desktop publishing. Wow. what a reality check. I worked for a company
whose focus was print/advertisng media, we were still working with camera shots and pen and ink, and then along came the Apple SE. From that first day, I was hooked.

My first dip into compositing was a challenging, rewarding and a major pain in the .... Since then, the bulk of my work has been in Photohsop.
Last year, I decided to complete my college degree in Media Arts and Animation with a focus on 3D Modeling and Digital Matte Painting.
Today, I am sitting in a lab for Senior Studio working on 3D Mattes. Life is good.

The time I have spent upgrading and refocusing my abilities has been energizing. I have had the greatest pleasure working with other emerging artist of all ages, cultures and personalities.
We share ideas, curse Maya and share chocolate, curse Maya again while waiting for the Rendering process to finish.
I will graduate from the Art Institute of Portland next term. I look forward to the next phase of my Artistic Career.

I greatly appreciate everyone's willingness to share their work, knowledge and honest feedback. Making up reality requires understanding reality, and being real.
Enjoy the day.
Good Day from Portland, Oregon
