Hello my name is Matthew, and I have been studying and creating digital artwork for over 5 years. I have a degree in Multimedia and a BA in Computer Animation from Full Sail University. Currently I have been studying graphic design at SMFA/Tufts. On a daily basis I create digital artwork using Adobe Creative Suites (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and After Effects) and 3D modeling applications such as Pixologic’s ZBrush Maya and Blender. A foundation of traditional art such as sketching, painting, and color theory has fathered my abilities in design.

Digital artwork is something I've always been passionate about and helping others in my passion just makes it even better. I'm looking to help anyone looking to learn a new application to succeed in there goals. My goal is to help people learn, promote creativity and become successful in creating their vision.

Adobe Flash

I study Adobe Flash. I have debugged animated banners and cartoons. I have also built an interactive program for portfolio presentations by coding with Action scripts into custom made Buttons. I would import my SWF files into Adobe Dreamweaver for further customized websites. For character animations I like to use the bone tools and draw the joints to bind the IK to the characters. (Similar to Autodesk Maya) as well as using the Ease in/Ease out graph editor in motion Tween properties. In addition to creating elements in Flash, I’m able to import vectors base imagery from Illustrator or Photoshop bitmap files.

Adobe Illustrator

In my studies for my Multimedia degree I was taught Adobe Illustrator to create vector graphics for stationary elements for branding and illustration. I also utilize my skills for motion graphics production to be used in Adobe After Effects. I have also been exposed to the study of typography and the proper use of the Character and Paragraph tools. Most of my illustrations are freehand and scanned in which enables me to use the Live Trace/Image Trace in CS6 feature to convert into vector paths.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for over 6 years. I use Adobe Photoshop for all my digital art. I have spent countless hours studying photo editing and manipulation to design pixel based imagery. I use a wacom table to create digital matte painting and character concept sketches. I am able to use the Brush panel to create my own custom brushes to get results. I know how important using masks is for a non-destructive workflow as well as adjustment layers to color correct.

Graphic Design

I have study at the Museum of Fine art Boston MA in graphic design. In my time of study I have been expose to the design process of branding and typography. Studying the anatomy of type and important of proper use of typography. Creating designs like custom logos and stationary, magazine spreads and brochures. For printing, understanding the different between processed color and spot color printing is also important. I’ve also creating content for web design like banners and icons and frameworks.

Maya

I attended college in 2007 at ITT Technical Institute to study Multi-Media. In 2009 I graduated with an Associate In Applied Science Degree. After I attended Full Sail University's Computer Animation Program and received a Bachelors of Science - Computer Animations Degree. My time in college I would help with other students having trouble with there modeling projects or learning Maya. My first Two years of college I learned how to modeling using 3D Studio Max. Once I enter Full Sail I had to learn Maya and ZBrush which was an easy transition. To this day I continue honing my skills modeling in Maya adding to my portfolio.

Video Production

At the end of 2012 I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Animation from Full Sail University. Over the course of my studies, I utilized applications such as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere and The Foundry NukeX. I have learned to edit film, rotoscope and composite 3D models for VFX. I have been exposed to all disciplinary areas of computer animation, such as story boarding, concept art, to scene finishing, compositing and color correcting.
