Rievilo - The Lost Jungle

Hello !
I just open a thread. Pics are coming soon...

After some drawing, I've decided where I'm going.
The scene takes place in a big waterfalls valley with Aztec temples and structures.
In the background : the huge temple/mountain with the aim waterfall.

See you soon !

Hi !

Well, here is my WIP.
I have to finish the matte soon this month but I have already prepared for my future free time the waterfalls valley with the same mountain/temple in the background. It's an inspiring topic !
In this one, a lot of things have to be retouched, adjusted, or simply created.
Comments are welcomed !
Have fun !

Pictures I 'm using

nice work Olivier !

But I think you can do more. You need a light, a mood in your matte. Maybe with this element, the integration of the stones at the foreground will be better.

Salut !

Totaly Right.
I've replaced the sky by a grey one, soft. It brings more light and less yellow. It helps to read better the picture.
I'm working too on perspectives and sizes of the structures.
A lot of exciting work !

And you ?
What do you plan to create ?

See you !

This is looking very very good. Atmosphere is already great. I think though that this would look even better without the ruins in the midle with the three and roots on top of it. Maybe continue the path from foreground with water and rocks. That would lead the eye perfectly. This is already a strong peace hope you finish it. Good luck.

Update

Thanks The Saraf for the advice.
It's a good point. I tried it a few moments ago and It creates a long and weird distance between the little wall in the foreground and the middle plan (1st waterfall).
I prefer to keep it cause I plan to hang skull heads from the tree. Creepy and discrete details for this old and lost Maya kingdom, but I like it.

Here is an update with close-ups ! Of course I have my list of things to change but let me know what do you think guys.
I really appreciate your advices and comments.

Before


After


Close-up : I put a discrete skull on the top of the waterfall.


Close-up


Close-up : skulls too behind the water.


See you !

This is looking really cool, you must be working pretty high res too because everything looks so sharp and crisp I'm loving where you are taking this at the moment. Do you plan on adding any noisy volumetric lighting at all?

Thanks !

For the resolution of the pictures : yeah, it's right. I have a huge image bank in Hires.
And 60/70% are personal pics. This image size : 3000x2000 Pi / 300 dpi

The volumetric lighting : good point !
I tried something, but it was so bad that I let it go for the moment
But well, first, I prefer to finish the details.
And at the end this can be a serious option to consider.

The water on the right side looks a bit off, it seems to be hovering over the steps. You might want to define the structure at the waterfall a bit more as well, a bit to equal in light.


Good progress ! Keep on going.
