Hi Everyone,
Here's my latest mattepainting, titled "The Mountain View". It's almost a finished work, but I'd really like to get your comments & critiques, to improve upon this mattepainting.

it looks nice =)
can I see the original plate?

the pink cloud looks a bit unreal to me, but if that's the feeling you're looking for then that's cool =) just my personal opinion

Hi kuroe702,
Thank you very much for the complements on my mattepainting! Yes, I tried to make the clouds look pink; I tried to merge reality with a bit fantasy (pink cloud) in this painting! My earlier attempt, "The Lighthouse" got more or less good critique, but one critique was common, that it looked monochromatic (bluish), which was definitely the fact! This time I tried to go for some color-variation, & I'm glad that you liked it! Yes, you can see the original plate! The following two reference images were used to create this mattepainting:

Nice I can see lot of improvements in this attempt. Check your edges, I feel they are too soft and also the persepctive is off a little bit. Maybe try keep those moutains in bg a little a further away in the scene?
