Beach Home

Here is my very first Matte Painting. I wanted the home to feel organic, and also a lonely place. More than anything this was just an experiement to see how well I could do on it. Feedback will be much appreciated.

It's hard to tell wich part of the pictre is edited, what have you mixed or not. The chimney and window: the lighting doesn't feel right there, compare the shades with other rock shades. Cheers, everything else is nice

Hey Andrew, Great first try! very impressive.

I think this image needs a little more personality. I want to see the door the person gets out from , foot prints in the sand , maybe some old wine bottles half barried haha. ok a little to far there. Also the window needs more depth, maybe instead of having just the rock wall inside , let us see what the person has inside his crazy house.

Since it is hard to know what is cropped and added thats a good thing , your doing your job . It would be nice to see the references thou.

SpetsK: Thanks, I have been working on it again since seeing your reply. I believe too little has been added and for this piece to be my own, I need to change at least 10% of it. Both os the things have already been changed, I am not entirely ready to show it yet. Below is the reference. As you see, you are correct, only those you noted have been changed.

Matellis: Thanks for the advice, I will try ti implement some of them. The window may be hard to add more detail as it is in very deep shadow. The only thing I can think of is some ornuments of something on a ledge/window sill.

I have redesigned the window and hopefully will make it look like something from long ago, not of this era.

To try and pin-point a story to this piece I will say it is a home before machines were used; possibly 0-1000AD or even before that. I am thinking as this guy is so out of civilisation, he should have to hunt his own meals and collect his own water. So no beer bottles I am afraid.

To mention to the viewers that this place is before machines, I was thinking of a village/town/city on that piece of land in the distance. Another idea could be the viking long boats or soemthing.

Here is the Ref:

The lighting for the chimney still seems off. Any pointers for this please?
