My system at home-

PowerMac G4 dual 533 mhz w/ 1.5 gigs of RAM. 2 Monitors and a
Wacom Intuos 2 tablet. Nothing special, really. I did the work for
"Kate & Leopold" on this system.

However, I've worked on many different systems when I work in-house
at various companies. I've worked on Macs, SGI's, PC's (running Windows
or Linux). Software I use directly include Photoshop (7 or CS), AfterEffects,
ElectricImage, FormZ (but I kinda suck at modeling) , Lightwave 3D.
However I have a working knowledge of 3d StudioMax, Maya, XSI,
and a little teeny tiny bit of Cinema4D. Not
to mention all kinds of different propietary software.

Rick, you are certainly an inspiration. :) Plus your openness to answering questions and explaining methodology is really appreciated.

Thank you!


All the best,

Hi Rick,
I was just wondering if you are going to post any of your recent works?

No. "Kate" was the only thing I was working on at the time.

It's definitely an invisible one, Rick. And it has real depth. Very cool! Knowing your scenic painting background, I was wondering, if you integrate "real" paintings into your mattes. I know a few matte painters here in LA, who started doing it again, and so did I. Also miniatures are back. I think organic stuff sometimes looks better that way.

I'm looking forward to see your site. Will you show some of your painted backings?

PS I have a question, which so far nobody has yet responded (posted under General Discussions), an maybe this is a more visible place here (around Rick Rische) to post it: Does anyone know what happened to Chris Evans, the matte painter (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Enemy Mine,..)?

Thanks for the comments. Since starting in digital matte painting in '97,
I haven't integrated traditional painting into any shots, however I do
build miniatures and shoot them if the shot can benefit from that
approach. You just can't beat real sunlight falling on real surfaces
and textures, as well as all the subtle interactions of light and shadow
that you get by using something from the real world. I'm not a very good
model maker (when I was at ILM I built a few models for some shots in
"Phantom Menace" and you better believe I felt very inferior next to
Steve Gawley and the rest of that crew!) but I can just get by.
Basically, I like to keep all my options open when I approach a shot, and
use whatever seems like a workable solution to get it done.

As for Chris Evans, he has been affiliated with Matte World Digital for many
years, but has moved into a more supervisory, consultation kind of role.
You might want to PM Chris Stoski or Craig barron. They'd have more info
on Chris's recent activities.
