Hey that's looking good. How about adding a slight shadow to the elements that have direct contact to the floor ? The images are pretty small to see all the details you worked on.
Don't worry too much to have the same concept as others here in this challenge, as the resultiung matte painting is going to look completely different anyway. keep it up :)

oh thats a cool concept!

only thing is the perspective of back looks strange compared to the two side walls..
or maybe its the other way around..

Howdy :)

Yeh i agree, love the concept, looks really well, nice lighting, directs quite well. The main issue as mentioned above is the perspective of the two walls, the right side needs pulling back in, you could potentially break away the whole right side and just have that wall open. Really like the use of the lower levels, works well, though a little distorted.

On a final note, remember to try and be as photo-realistic as possible, also note the ratio/size needs to be more appropriate to matte painting :)

Good luck - Dave.

Hey Dave thanks for the feedback .....just want to clarify some of ur suggessions...what do u mean by 'just have an open wall' do u mean not have any architectre n just the caves rock face? Also what is the ratio/size of a matte :shrug: I not know wat it is.

hi snehal really cool looking concept just like u.........
few suggs that walls r in 1 point perspective so staires and midle wall needs to match with them or other way round..... and u can have architecture more in rocks and all again some ruines around will help u to direct the attention.... and ration what dave is talking i think allowing matte to extend in some way will do it.... just need to sit and watch it 4 while u will get ur way......... and
ALL THE BEST............

HI made a couple of changes ..got rid of that wall n flipped the canvas ..i think it makes a more interesting composition.

I like the mood and lighting of your concept, but try to move the center of interest from the middle of the comp. I suggest to make the building twice big as now and try to move it to the right, to have a balance between the stairs at the end of the building and the cave opening.
Can't wait to see more.

oy, i like your concept as well.
giving yourself quite the challenge there. be carefull wit the perspective.
you might wanna try curving it like a panned layout/bg. that way you'd already have the cam solved as well. thumbs up...
