Hi Everyone, :)

Here's Kaustav, welcoming all of you to the 'CG Universe Digital Matte-Painting Challenges' forum; I hope, all of you will enjoy your stay here at the forums! :) Here in this 'Introduce Yourself' thread, you can post anything and everything you wish about yourself (where you were born, your childhood, influences to become a Matte-Painter, your early career etc) that other members of the community should know about you! :) You can also post your photographs! :) Can't wait to get acquainted with all of you! Take care!

Thanks,
Kaustav

Hi, my name is Tim Guo, a former student in David Mattingly's Matte Painting class at Pratt Institute. I was really inspired when I first saw Dylan Cole's works online, digital paintings and matte paintings, and have had a growing passion for digital arts and concept art from then. I am currently a senior in Industrial Design and I'm working on a portfolio to enter into the Entertainments Design department at the Art Center in Pasadena. This challenge seems like great fun, thanks for all the hard work on setting this up! =)

excuse me, it's possible to know something about the contests of the past month (FALL OF THE WORLD)?
I had participated and sent my matte painting with the various wip, but after August 20 (closing day of the contest), the site was non-existent and gave general error.
This is the link where I had come to the contest page: http://mattepainting.org/vb/showthread.php?t=7177
now I see that there is a new contest for September / October, but no information or notice of the previous.
I'd like to have some information about this occurrence, thanks

Hi Fabio,

Well, unfortunately the previous site where I was conducting the challenges got hacked by the spammers! :( The results are on hold!

Hi there !
I'm also french even though I'm currently studying movie making in Montreal.
I've been into matte painting for about 6 months now and this is the first time I'm going to enter a contest, because I want to see how far I can go and what are my skills in matte painting compared to other people.

I've started my own website, where you can see my gallery, tutorial and other informations (it's in french, but the gallery is universal ^^) : www.mattereal.com

I'll be posting my WIP for the current contest soon =)
