really like your work. If I may... in this piece, an overcast piece, not quite buying the direct light source on the mid-ground ruins. I think its perspective is a tad off. It works if you chop the frame down about the height of his staff though. My two cents :)

Whoa, this piece is really great. Really love the grainy effect, but im not sure on how to reproduce it. Care to share the secret?

Big thanks!!!
Well the image is build on refs I got and the grainy effect is simple…
add a white solid over all your layers, apply the noise filter and set the layer to multiply :)
Thats all:)

The shading on that dilapidated house in the midground might be too sharp. Excellent picture though.

Yup - you're absolutely right. Have to rethink the sharpening effect for this kind of paintings! Guess it will be better to not do it for matte painting.

Big thank to you:)

The perspective seems unnatural to me...

I have no idea, I know nothing about this kind of things... Maybe it's about the angle? Don't listen to me though, I'm just a random person from the internet that just likes to enjoy the pictures on DA. P:

Hey - thanks for pointing such things out. Every feedback is welcome.
And for sure - I'll listen to you:)
Well, it could be the angle - its a bit irritating, but that was intentionally:)
Cheers

Really neat to see you do new things. Never grasped how to make matte paintings. I see you are already developing it into your style. Nice work.

An sich sieht alles sehr gut aus, nur ist es insgesamt doch recht dunkel geworden.
