Those who have followed the working process in the wip section have already seen this matte. It's a picture I painted for pleasure and practice with photoshop and a wacom tablet.
I hope you like it... and many thanks to all the artists on this website, you've been the main source of ispiration!

really nice matte painting. the only thing i would say is that the path in the foreground gets way to thin at the end.

even if the path is meant to be really long if u look to the start of the path in the midground its around the same size. make the path a bit wider and it'll work much better.

nice work

That turned out very nicely! I really like your use of light and atmospheric perspective.

I have to respectfully disagree about the path. I'm seeing it as a foot-path and as it turns toward the left we're seeing the side of the curb or raised edge. That would not deminish

This is a very nice image. Turned out well.
But I have to agree that something is off with the perspective
on the path. It seems to diminish far too rapidly. Compare
the scale of the grasses on foreground left with the grasses
to the right of the path. They don't change scale nearly as much.
The path gives the impression of a false horizon.
I think reevaluating the perspective in the foreground path will
help separate the entire foreground from the midground plateau
as well.
