The Digital Matte Painting Handbook, 9780470922422 (0470922427), Sybex, 2011

From an early age, I wanted to be an artist. I was drawn first to comic books and then to science-fiction literature because of the wondrous images that fed my artistic imagination. When I read Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Heinlein, and Isaac Asimov as an adolescent, I would spend as much time studying the covers as I did reading the books, and I began to compose pictures to go along with the narrative. Movies brought these pictures to life. I became an avid fan of fantasy and science-fiction films as much for the visuals as for the stories. I was acutely attuned to special effects and how moviemakers made the fantastic real on screen. With cinema’s magical combination of fantastic imagery and motion, is it any wonder I became a matte artist? In fact, I distinctly remember the first time I became aware of a matte painting in a feature film.
