I am 22 years old male from helsinki. My name is matthew jamsen. I love to draw, paint and create inspirational art and make art for other people. art is in a way meditation for me.
This piece was one of my sci-fi projects I chose in my mentorship. Really had fun with this one. i got idea for this painting from no man’s sky game and few other sci-fi movies. we used the same technique on this like we used on others, we started 3D modeling first and continued to photoshop after that where we used textures and painting techniques to make it look ready and beautiful.
my biggest problems were understanding the modern way of making art for example using photoshop and Blender. Drawing with ink was hard too because I have always drawn with pencil and charcoal pencil.
I had hangout sessions multiple times a week and my mentor taught me new ways to make art and how to use Blender and photoshop. It helped me to make my art quicker and better. We painted together and my mentor fixed and helped me with screen-sharing which was really helpful.
Christopher made it feel like you are making art with a friend. It was more than just a school. This mentorship gave me a lot of motivation and made learning fun really fun. I think the biggest difference from other ways of learning was that you were always helping and were personally involved in helping get me to understand what I need to do differently.
This piece was the Aztec subject I chose in my mentorship. It was so fun because I learned so much from it. we started with Blender and made 3D models first. my mentor taught me a lot about 3D modeling on Blender when we made this piece. after 3D modeling, we continued to photoshop. on photoshop we started to paint and then we added some textures. after texture addition, we painted the rest of the details.
It was amazingly helpful. I learned a lot and it open my eyes to how many ways there are to make art. It was nice to see that if u just push yourself forward you will learn at an amazing rate. all in all, CGVerse was a huge step on my art journey and I recommend this concept art school to anyone who wants to learn more and have fun doing that.
I would tell that this is an amazing experience. That you will learn quickly and have fun at the same time. It’s like drawing with a friend but You just learn a lot every time. It will be a huge turning point for you. after the mentorship you will have so much more information on how to create your art more easily. you really get a good foundation from this mentorship.

This piece was the last one that we made on my mentorship. we used 3D techniques and matte painting techniques. This piece was the biggest piece we made on this mentorship and it is my favorite too. we made 3D models on Blender first and added some atmosphere on Blender before we made our way to photoshop. on photoshop we started to add texture on top of the 3D models. After that, we made some detail for shadows and light. Then we started to paint all the details.
