I am currently a Digital Matte Painter working in the film industry. I have been doing matte painting for a while and have felt the desire to want to give back in some way. I also want to contribute to a tighter nit matte painting community where we all keep sharing knowledge.
So I have created a “Tutorials” section of my website where I am posting some tips and tricks of the trade for people getting started and also posting gadgets, tools, shaders, etc for the more advanced industry crowd.
I have posted some beginner stuff now and I will be rolling out some more advanced stuff within the week. If you want to be notified when those are available, follow me on twitter (@gfryart) or get my RSS feed off my website.
Here are some posts available now:
-What does a Matte Painter Need to Know?
-Some Advice for getting into Matte Painting
-Locations photography for Matte Painting
-EMI Creator: Great for Photoshop Brushes
Here is some stuff coming out this next week that you might think is cool:
-Nuke Projection setup with MARI Bridge integration.
-Setting up Multi Projections in Maya
-Maya Shader to view Multi Patch MARI Models
-Nuke/Mari Bridge Gadget for to use Multi Patch MARI Models in Nuke.
-Nuke Tree Card Gadget
Come take a look and leave me some comments. This is the first time I have done tutorials so some feedback would be cool.
