View Full Version : First Attempt at Matte Painting Ever!

Well here is my first attempt at Matte Painting...


I am quite proud of this one but to tell you the truth I feel this was just more along photomanipulation than Matte Painting, but I guess those two are quite similar. I painted here and there and shaded and lighted some places. Overall about 2 hours work.

What can I do to improve? What is wrong with the picture? What can make it better?

It is great for the first attempt.
As for c&c; for one it might be better to lower the saturation in the mid-ground trees to match them with the background trees and the rest of the image.

and the shadow from the huge tree in the right does not match the light from sky!

ok I will get right on those problems and fix them, thanks for the reply!

Agree to Homer, great work.

The tree on the right seems a bit disproportional to me - compared to the trees to the left.
