anyway composition test no erm 12 lol. I quite like the density on this one

I like the depth! Some nice design there.

Maybe double-check the perspective of the upside-down v shape of roof just above the satellite dish.

Hi, I think you instinctually think there is something wrong with this painting. Me its the volcano in the the rear, I have been given advice that you must never place anything symmetrical dead centre of a comp, its unsettling. Also geology is letting it down, canyons are formed in plateau areas with no other geology higher than the plateau itself the volcano is alien to the geology. Also its a massively contrasting colour.

Love everything else have a look on flikr there is a matte painting resource page on there, I think you might find what you are looking for on there.

Looking forward to seeing how your matte goes,

Richie.

the first issue I see in this image is the linear perspective, in the right side you have some straight lines but some other lines at the roof are curved totally but the balcony is still straight, this is wrong, and should be fixed, that deformations mimics maybe an angular lens but on the left side you have straight lines.

other maybe is that the right mountains look different to the left ones, , the right ones have a warm monochrome color in both light and shadow and the left ones are warm/ greenish on the light side and Bluer/greenish on the shadow side with a bit of the warm color of the rock, try to integrate both elements better, is looking good, you have a nice flow in there, good luck !

You were right right rich, something didn't feel right in my last iteration so I took out the mountain and I do think its opened it up a bit. Jamie your advice too was awesome I've tinkered with the right mountains and I think I've managed to get some variation between the light and shadow that's close to the left mountains. At this point I think all that's left is the fg buildings and the steam punk elements which ive been building on the side :P anyway here's my latest iteration. as always c&c are very much appreciated

iteration

Dear Matt,
I think your sketch is headed the right way.
Maybe you should jump into Matte Painting mode and start laying in some textures/photos.
It might help you define a few more things compositionally, when you're working out light and dark areas.

Kind Regards,
Milan

Good interpretation of the brief so far
It only seems "wonky" right now? Maybe fix some perspective lines and then finish it with a photo-realistic quality.

Nice concept

Try out making the bridge brown/black and see how you like it better
