Hi there everyone! :)

It's been a while since I've last posted something in here... been really busy in High School.
But a couple of weeks ago I found the time to attempt another mattepainting, so I wouldn't forget everything I've learned. Here it is...

I just wanted to try out some new techniques, but mostly try painting details and other key elements, rather than using photos for everything. The waterfalls and a lot of the foreground vegetation are for example all painted in Photoshop.

Inspired by Dylan Cole's matte painting DVD's. I hope you like it.
Criticism is most welcome.

Really nice piece Thomaskrahn.
I'm amazed to see that your only 17 and still in High school. very impressive.

Great job and keep it up. Best of luck to you!

Very very nice man, I find only two things in the piece that may need a bit of fixing... The top edge of the puffy cloud on the left side looks a lil rough/the color may be a bit off but not by much. Is it a repeated version of the cloud on the right? Could be a layering property issue. It works well against the dark blue bg, but on the lighter blue it creates a bit of distracting appearance.

VERY MINOR DETAIL might I add, the piece is awesome, and I hope to see more of your work. 17.... Damn I should have chosen a studio art major in college.... Nice work, congrats.

The composition is pretty solid but a few things I see are the colour seems a little to saturated but thats truly your choice. Lastly the clouds seem to be a little to much and not falling in atmospheric perspective the like the background mountains are.

Nice to see follow through from concept to final, good work!
