My name is Stephanie, currently enrolled in the VFX program at Vanarts (Vancouver Institute of Media Arts), and I'm a classmate of Rohit Nayak.
I recently found out one of my matte paintings was selected to be included in D'Artiste: Matte Painting 3! I'm very excited and honoured! :)

We are in the last 6 weeks of our program, so it's crunch time for our demoreels...Stress!
I hope to participate in the upcoming challenges, more practice is always a good thing.

Cheers,

Stephanie

My name is Denis. I was born and live in Montreal. I’ve been drawing since childhood and had the chance of having really supportive parents that always encouraged me to make a living out of it. After my father passed away, I decided to use the amount he left me to enter a VFX/3D animation school. I knew then I had found my way but through a series of what could be considered a combination of bad decisions, I ended up leaving school with a crappy demo and hence never could get a job in the industry.
Reality check aside, I needed to pay the bills and got a pretty standard office job in a call center but I now understood that I could not be great at everything 3D related plus do everything myself and that I needed to choose an area of expertise to focus on. Matte painting was only vaguely mentioned in school but it still managed to tingle my curiosity and I ended up buying Dylan Cole’s DVD. What an epiphany lol ! I knew then and there that this is what I wanted to do. Matte painting requires a vast array of skills and knowledge not only related to digital arts but also of the world itself Perfect for curious minds like mine. From then on, I’ve been trying to build a decent portfolio in the hopes of one day fulfilling my dream and becoming a professional matte painter. The amount of feedback given here is really impressive and I’m looking forward to sharpen my skills through these challenges. :)

Cheers !

Hello all, my name is Julia. I’m super excited to discover these challenges, and I hope they continue so I can participate in them!

I am an artist and currently work as a web/graphic/motion graphics designer. I've worked some as a 3D animator and artist, and only recently discovered the amazing world of Matte Painting. I’m so excited and eager and looking into a professional career shift! Matte Painting is everything I’ve ever wanted to do, I just didn’t know it until I found it! Better late than never, I guess.

I’m inspired by what I’ve seen here, and hoping to meet other folks in the industry. Looking forward to sharing and getting feedback from the community.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Kaustav!

And for the info about the workshop. It sounds really great, especially about workflow and process and more.

I think it's amazing and generous of you to sponsor these contests. Thanks for doing them. It's a fun and inspiring way to build some portfolio, gain insights from everyone who offers them, and I'm looking forward to finding out what else.

Thanks again!
