Master the technical side of your work by fully understanding how to check and fix your levels!

In a VFX environment, having 'legal values' (I.e. no clipped highlights or shadows) is extremely important and something that most juniors don't quite understand when they first start. Learning this technique and applying it to your work will allow you to stand out from the crowd as a technically aware junior artist.

This tutorial is an extract from the 12 Week MattePaint Course with over 40 hours of content and is run 3 times a year. If you would like more information click here: The MattePaint Course
