Hey Levi great matte! very realistic , if I was to crit anything I would say maybe you should add some bounce light on the bottom of the boat from that bright grass there. Other then that its very believable! You work too much man! relax and have a beer , you deserve it :)

hey , nice integration on this one, looks great I agree it is very beliavable, and also I agree on the little green color needed on the boat
maybe some clouds on the sky would look better than a boring flat blue
good composition as well

thanks guys

jamesvfx: i did try with several skies, but this cleanone and also dull was the only one that came through. And also if skies would be added, most of the light on the surface would need to be altered, shadows of clouds, and overall alternate light.

great, i would only comment about the grass too as already stated! I actually prefer this sky and I see what you mean with the clouds..

Now where's that viking ship coming out of the gate?? :twisted: only joking.

This is a really fun idea and well executed. The first thing that came to my mind is, rivers like the one in the foreground are usually only a few feet deep at most. A ship with that draft would never get through there! If the water in the foreground were deeper, it wouldn't be so ripply on top. Also, the ship seems to be sitting a bit too high above where the water's surface is in the hidden canal.

Still, I love the image.
