I for one would like to assert that digital matte painting uses all the same skills as painting by hand. I go to movies to experience the emotion and enjoy the story. I think emotion and story is...

Hey Jadrien, nice work! I like the shapes you've used and the depth you've created.
My criticisms are maybe the image needs something of more interest on the right to balance it, and that the...

Nice work, my only criticism is I think the sky stock must have been burnt out in the brightest part of the cloud, since now it looks grey and has lost some detail. Maybe it could be painted back in...

I think there's a type of shot called 'ambiguous space', designed to disorent or maybe overwhelm the viewer, where you can't tell what is up or down, and this image does that for me. I was looking...

Hey, I think this is nice. Good colour scheme, nice depth. True I think the lighting or placement of the ship could have been better, it's a bit lost. I also think the image could be balanced...

Really nice colours! Great job :) Maybe the building could be slightly more detailed. Also, we are looking up at the building, at the moment the perspective kind of looks like we are looking across...

Good job so far, biggest area for improvement would be the sky. I feel like the lighting on the clouds doesn't match the lighting direction on the statues.

Nice detailed model. I like it. I think the image could use some more colour, unless that's the style of the film. I think something in the foreground like the lamp post in the original image would...

I like your colours. I think the main thing stopping the image looking real is the clouds, especially in the top centre.

Is it supposed to look real? Or is it meant to be a painting. It kind of...

I like it, but I think it needs a few more buildings to give it a city feel rather than just a few lone towers. I watched the animation and I think the projection is working well, but is it possible...

To me the image look slightly washed out, I'm not sure if it's the gamma. Maybe it's the 'fog' from the rain is it possible it's removing too much colour?

Most of the image works and its a great idea, but I think the lighting direction doesn't match on the snow mountain. Wouldn't it be lit from behind and to the right, rather than just from the right

Mountain Fortress in Snow

Hi I produced a similar painting to this about a year ago, and I thought I'd revisit the same subject to see if I could do it any better. I'm having difficulty painting this tilt-up shot and getting...
