View Full Version : The Curoius Portal

Hi everyone,

would this qualify as a matte painting? I know that most are landscapes and environments,
but I thought it would be cool to walk thru the portal and see the whole city.

By the way, would someone be kind enough to tell me how to upload a larger image

Hi frank to upload a bigger file you can upload it to a free server , like this one ( thenin your new thread or post in in the insert image button you just paste the URL you got when you uploaded the image and voila ! you get a higher res image in a fast way

or now that you already have uploaded in the cgnetworks server just do the same in the insert imagge button , I just did it in your check it out

looking at you image, it is a nice compoition but a little bit boring, the focal node is in the center and because it is a photo background the foreground elements looks too perfect or CG
that neon light maybe should look different and the light should affect the wall where it is
I see some rough shadow cuts in the right red brick wall

Thanks for the feed back Jamie,
I will clean up the right wall and make some changes. Landscape mattes are on the way
(hopefully soon).

Hey frank , I think right now your foreground is too flat , maybe add some more perspective in there , have those plants coming toward the camera as well maybe some lights , it would be nice to maybe see the sealing or the wall on the right to break it up some.
