    Matte Painter?

    What exactly does a matte painter do at a job? I've seen the title mentioned alongside a concept artist, but I've never really known what they do.
    Some nice daily inspirations:

    A Matte painter is someone who is heavily involved with Film and 3D work.

    Basically a matte painter will paint a background for a scene as it is more simple/cost effective then making a model for a backdrop.

    Most of the time now they are digitally painted and composited into the plates.

    Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within has a section devoted to Matte Painting on the DVD. They even show how they went a step further with them and added in simple animation to give them more depth.

    If you want to get into it, then paint heaps of landscapes at insanely hi reses.
