Welcome to this brand new course on digital matte painting. My name is Ed Lopez. I'm a digital matte painter at NBC, and I have more than seven years experience in the digital matte painting field. Today, we will be creating a fantastic landscape digital matte painting. Sharing with you techniques and tips that will take you fast and easy through the whole process. Before you start on with this course, let me tell you that this is not a basic Photoshop course. So if you require the knowledge of the basic Photoshop tools and such, it's better for you to go onto Tuts+ and find some other courses that cover all these basic tools and Photoshop. So you can later on come back to this course and finish it off. Throughout this course, we use a Wacom tablet all the time, either for painting directly on the image or to the different masks we use. It's most highly recommended that you get a Wacom tablet. Doing this with a mouse is quite difficult, and you will never get the same results. Let's go and get started with our course on the first lessons.
