The only thing I wanna point out is that the building looks like it's sinking into the ground. Other than that, it looks good.

Hi Irhen,

Your work always proves to be interesting and creative. Over all i like this piece and the building is very interesting, nice composition.

How did u create this image, is it a completely painted or have you composed photographic elements and 3d geometry?

A few thoughts ...

The lake to the right, would there be more reflections to the far side of the lake? not quite sure.

Though i'm sure there is one i can't seem to make out a doorway to the building, or an obvious entrance.

Using the strong lighting from the clouds as a reference it doesn't seem to match the lighting on the structure, needs a little balancing maybe.

Maybe stronger shadows been cast from the building itself.

mmmm, can't think of much else. Though the bloods a little freaky :) what's that all about?

Overall nice work, hope we continue to see more :thumbsup:

Oh one more thing, i can't seem to find the video clip??

Oh i see, got it.

Looks nice, a little long but good. Looks very fairietale like, be nice to see a little atmospherics, maybe a little mist floating by a few critters, a little dynmaic light flickering though the trees, etc .. just a few thoughts.

Good work.

Hi irina it's been a while he , hehe nice work good improvement in your technique but here are a few issues I see

first of all integration of elements are not right , you have some photo textures very sharp and other too blury.
think about scale how far is it? how big should it be, I think the main building is too big for the distance you try to achieve
the foreground tree needs more shadow side, it does not match the general illumination
when working with camera projection you don't have to work exactly with the shapes or 3D geometry, I mean you can build new edges out of alpha mattes, with this you can achieve a lot of edge detail such as grass or fooliage in the general enviroment
beware of perspective mostly in the focal node in your image
nice work irina and keep them coming

Hey Irina , great job on finding images to match your concept so well. I think thats the hardest part about matte painting. Many times I do a concept and then I cant seem to find any royalty free images that I can use so I switch to a different project.

Keep up the great work!
