About This Course

'Epic Matte Shot' was one of IFCC Academy’s pioneering courses helmed by Steven Cormann. It has aged a bit but it's still very relevant. The course provides a comprehensive overview of concept art from idea to execution using Maya software and Redshift plug-in tools through a series of tutorials. It teaches students easily applicable and intuitive lessons that will ease progression in the field of concept art. The curriculum is a revelation for those seeking new ways and skills to articulate their conceptions. The video lessons focus on creating an inspiring image using 3D matte painting techniques. The course covers wide terrain, gunning for maximum scope while remaining on target. Beginning at the research phase, the lecturer takes you through everything from setting the scene to the finishing touches with over-painting.
