Hi everyone!

First of all it's great to have the opportunity to post on this forum.
The link below shows you one of my latest matte painting which I've done for my animation short. It would be great if some of you have any comments to it.

nice composition, a tad blurry for my tastes, but nice structure, form.

are those trees, not sure if they have trees there

welcome moe, I think this is a nice composition as well, and I agree with roguenroll it is too blury .what are the elements here?? how many photos did you use to create this matte painting?
yeah I think those are pines, and sure I've seen them in those conditions, maybe adding some snow at the top of them would look better

Ok, thx guys for your comments and suggestions. I wanted to create a dreamlike / fairytale scene, thats why I used that blury effect. I agree with you jamesvfx, I should add some snow to the pines or even erase them away couse my idea was, that the castle stands on a peak of a high mountain. So I'm not sure but I think starting from a certain height it is not possible to find such a forest..? Argh, what the heck?!
For this work I took this two landscape pictures:
1 (
2 (
Again thx for your comments.:)
More comments are of course welcome!
