The Haunted Mansion, Daniele Montella (2D)

Title: The Haunted Mansion
Name: Daniele Montella
Country: Italy
Software: Photo-Paint

This is a recent work done for a challenge on a Matte Paint site.

I'm start from some picture, and play with light and contrast,overpainted or create the others details.

I'm trying to evoke a sense of mystery,solitude,restlessness...with the most realism as possible.

Excellent work!
The atmosphere is perfectly rendered, and the lighting on the trees and the house seem very real!! Concerning the "purpose" of the picture, you've done everything right Mystery and solitude, great description, and I wish I could see whats inside (eheheh!)
It may be stupid to say that, but it looks like a Tim Burton's movie set!

WOW! This work indeed deserves that place on the frontpage! Awesome work! Looks scary... I'd réally like to see that 'some picture' you started with... And maybe the URL of that Mattepainting site...

Stunning work!!!

Nice to see someone else using Photo-Paint. Nice piece . . . normally I'm not too fond of photo-sourced mattes, but you manage to avoid the "collage" look that many such images suffer from.
