It seems that I’ve gone over 10 years as a roto/paint artist without ever really learning how to use Photoshop!
Sure, I figure, I know how to paint digitally, so Photoshop would be easy! It is pretty much, but I’ve got SO much to learn.
I finally have some books now that show me some techniques and give me some technical knowledge. I vow to practice and do lessons as much as possible. I need to fulfill my dream of some day being a matte painter.
Here’s something I worked on from scratch today, just playing with different brushes. I had fun doing it. I want to publish my progress, and get to a professional matte painter level. I think it might be interesting to watch me progress as I keep learning and practicing.
