warry here goes the first advice for you, NEVER work on someone else's work or try to modify it., it is not a good thing .first of all you need the permision of the artist just to show his work, it is not good at all to modify work that's not yours
please try doing your own stuff, it will certanly help you more .

Thanks for the reply, and for this advice, i can not start a matte because i try to find the perspective of my idea but i not made a success :( .

I was search on all of the forum and google and i saw few tutorials " one point perspective","two point perspective "... but i do not the relationship between the perspective and the pictures.... for exemple :

I was try but i can not find the perspective, can somebody add on the pictures the perspective to explain me ?

Thanks .

Ps : I'm realy motivated, i have a lot of idea and pictures in my head but i can not explain that on the paper uh... on Photoshop lol :) .

its not easy to tell/find the perspective when you only have nature elements in the image.
i would start with citys/buildungs etc. much easier.

Just stick with it, you'll get there in no time.

I think using a 3d program is a good start for correct perspective. I sometimes create the basic blocks for major elements of my scene then use that as a guide to paint over.

Blender is a very good and extremely well supported 3d program that's free ...

And you only need to know the real basics.

Stick with it :thumbsup:
