Hi folks.

In case not everyone was aware, I just wanted to let everyone know of this great site called MattePainting.org.

www.mattepainting.org

I myself discovered this website very recently and have found it to be very inspiring as well as educational.

Some of the industries best matte artists not only have there work featured,
but also frequent their forums.

For example, people that did a lot of the matte work on the LTOR trilogy
have links to their websites and galleries(some with the before and after blue/green screen plates).

It's a resource that I wish I knew about years ago because it is now making re-think the direction I want to take in using LW.

My interest and love of graphics started when I was introduced to Photoshop
way before I even heard of LW.

And the thing I liked most about using PS was the ability to combine and composite all kinds of different elements and have it look like it all belonged there.

So this website has really helped me to "re-realize" what I truly love doing
and LW is a valuable asset to make it even more than I ever knew it could be.

I know none of this is new to all of you but I had to share it anyway.

So there it is.

Enjoy!
