I did matte painting for Season One of Chuck & Friends, which was the first show I ever worked on as a painter. The Background design was provided to me, and then I got to design the colour and lighting and made sure it matched the style of the 2d fantasy sequences. The backgrounds were then set up on a flat card in Maya for the characters to animate in front of. I am so grateful I got to work on this show, it really was my dream come true, to paint for an animated series.
I also got to do some prop keys, to show the surfacing artists how the art director wanted them to look
