thx, AA Cool, I'm starting in on matte/3d combos. Would be a big help.
Yes, the forum I started will mainly focus more on 3D related matte paintings, projections, and heavy use of 3D integrate it with 2D painted files/texture creations. I started the forum couple of weeks ago, so it still very new, and we already have almost 400 members in such short amount of time, and it is growing rapidly. Besides matte paintings, PIXOLOGIC is also sponsoring one of my contests related to ZBrush, which is a great new 3D tool, that I recently also used for the movie "Aeon Flux" creating matte painting elelments. Anyways, again, it will be a heavy 3D site !
There is also an Artbook in the works related to 3D matte paintings/projections, Conceptual design for Film and Video games that will be coming out next year worldwide, and I am currently working on the production of the first title from LabOrganika Media and Press http://www.laborganika.com
Below is a scene I modeled in Maya and I will go over some texturing/projections/other related work in the forum soon.
