How did you become a DMP artist? How did you get into the Industry?

Heyo!

I would love to hear how all of you got into the industry and what made you pursue the art of Matte Painting? I find the process and the results of Matte painting absolutely amazing, and yet the idea of it is so daunting to me!

Please share your experiences and thoughts, so this hopeful artist can get an idea of how you all got here!!

Cheers!

Hey mate, I got into the industry by accident. A small ad-agency saw my illustrations and asked me to make a landscape so for the hell of it I said “yes”. They said it was a matte painting and after Googling it, I fell in love. Now that i’m in the industry working in film. Its completely different than Commercial work. Its far more trickier and a challenge.

I love matte painting because its very therapeutic. Helps with all the anxiety etc and I learn to focus. Plus each painting is so different in approach which I like a ton!
