Hi Stephanie
You show great understanding of manipulating photos quickly in order to achieve a first result

To take this to a mattepainting level the shadows, colors and balance has to match closer though. Analyze your light source again and have another go. Maybe make some adjustment layers on top and paint shadows via the layer masks. Then create a new layer on top with the blend mode switched to color and unify the painting more

Once you're happy with all that, try to create some visual interest with a stronger depth of field instead of the infinity focus

Good job so far. Looking forward to your update

Here is my final version. The updated breakdown is linked on my original post.

It was a fun painting and I'm really happy how it turned out.

Thanks for viewing and any comments are welcome!
