This is my first message on this site, I'm new here :)

I present to you my last Matte painting, it is not very full (only 3 stocks), but the problem is that I was not too many ideas to fill it.

Those that I show here is only the beginning, no adjustment has been done.

Here is the beginning:


Thank you all for your future comments and suggestions :) and i'm just beginner

And sorry for my English.

At this point I don't have nothing to say about this work. But I will strongly suggest you read a little bit about composition rules, perspective, color harmony and also most importantly closely study all great work posted in this forum.

Hi T-Tarek-
One quick suggestion: The way the the foreground mountains stop right in line with the background mountains should be avoided--that is called a tangent. You should move your forground mountains either up or down so than the background mountains don't intersect like that.
Also, you don't have a good sense of what direction the light is coming from--choose one direction, and light all the mountains accordingly.
Hope that helps! Keep at it.

Thank you!

You can forget this matte painting., I'm working on other matte painting and that was a bad start.

Thank you again.
