Hi, I'm new here and this is my first mattepainting:


It's not a finished work but I don't know what to do next

Sorry for my English. I'm still learning it :P

My first advice would be to fix the lighting.

Right now it somehow looks as if the moon is the main lightsource, but most of the clouds are lighten up by the sun which is coming from the right side somewhere.
Then you can see thru the bridge and its VERY brith, some for the hill, it has some very bright spot in the middle .. and the castle itself looks like on a cloudy day, with no primary lightsource at all .. try to fix that first, because it will be a lot of work :).

Good luck and welcome to matte paintings.

I will agree with Ulrik
the image quality looks nice, textures are good
but the lighting is rather confusing, the focus should be the buildings but the bright cloud on the right is disturbing. good luck =)
