Smile Kaustav Sinha - Lost Jungle

Hi Everyone,

Oops! This time, I guess, I'm extremely late to participate in this wonderful & very exciting Challenge; could not resist, so here I'm participating at the last moment lol! :P Hopefully, I can complete the Matte on time!

I'm planning to create the Digital Matte-Painting, based on the epic Film, the 'Avatar'; the Matte has a slight-bit of influence from the Film but, I tried to make it as unique as possible (as you'll see)! I went for an aerial POV of the jungle; I tried to make the huge mountain (in the BG, on the RHS), the focal-point of the Matte! I hope that, you'll like it! Comments & Critiques, as always, are heartily welcome!

PS : Credit for the Photos used in the creation of the Matte-Painting goes to Juan (aka plusultra)!

Thanks!

Hi Akim,

Hehe... yeah! Actually, I did saw the Movie three times (twice at the IMAX-3D & once in 2D); so, I just can't get out of the mesmerizing & the beautiful world of the Pandora lol!

Hi Standesign,

Thank you very much for the compliments; I'm glad that, you liked the progress so far! Haha... it can be the Aragorn (Strider), it can be the Avatar (Jake Sully) or, it can be anyone lol! Very nice idea; but, I'm planning to keep the environment as lush-green & natural as possible (let's see)! Sure! Lights-&-Shadows are one of the most important aspects to keep into account; I'll try my level-best to keep them into account!

Thanks once again!
