I haven't posted anything in a long time and there's good reason!
A lot of I haven't been allowed to post as the projects aren't done and my personal work is for projects still in production also. Give it another 9 months and I should have another big dump.
Anyways, I've been fortunate enough to work on some music videos while in New York. And I've been doing a spec music video for the Decemberists with my friend Daniel Oeffinger. We both directed it and here are some of the mattes from it:
Watch the video here.
This is a wide matte of the city of Los Angeles stylized in our world.
Opening shot of the video. There were 3-D elements added in the final.
This is the Santa Monica Pier. It was changed a good bit in the final shot. The texture was replaced and another set of clouds I painted were comped in.
The gate shot into Los Angeles. A 3-D torn cloth was added into the final shot.
Again, check out the video at here.

Next up, some mattes I did for a music video for a band called Nightmare of You and the song title is "My Name is Trouble." The video is going to be released soon.
The sketch preceeding the matte. Most people like this more than the matte.
The final matte. My Portable HD got dropped recently so I lost the layered file of this (along with every other High res file I had in the past year) but it was around 200-250 layers I believe for lights-on and lights-off total.
Next is another music video done for Fear Before the March of Flames for the song "Taking Cassandra to the End of the World Party" directed by my friend David Bell. This video had around 12-13 unique mattes painted (I say unique because a lot were re-used) and here are a couple before and afters. This video is also yet to be released.
Finally, here is my Blizzard entry for Warcraft. It was a fun challenge. The full size holds a lot of detail and you can see it here.
Thanks for looking! I am working on a few projects as a freelance concept artist and matte painter, but am searching for a full-time position or additional freelance work, so please check out more work at www.rambhat.com.

Jason, thanks! I'm glad you liked the work. That idea was the director's, turning DC into a Tokyo-esque heavily pink/purple futuristic city.
Thanks shyamshriram! I really enjoy seeing your work as well. I was born in Mumbai and lived there for til about 7 or so. That sketchbook was done during the 2 weeks I went there last summer. I'm hoping to visit again soon.

I especially love the texture in your blizzard piece
