This blog is aimed for anybody who is seriously considering becoming a digital matte painter (DMP) but is not sure on how to go about it or is after more direction. This was something I encountered when graduating and would have greatly appreciated at the time.
I'm a DMP working in television and film since 2011. Some of the projects I've worked on include Kill Command, Independence Day Resurgence and The Dark Tower, to name a few..
Something to be mentioned is that this is not to say that there isn't or wasn't information at the time I realised that this was my desired career path but is merely intended in being a brief history into how I went about becoming a DMP which maybe useful information to some.
