Hi man, haven't hear from you in a long time. Ok, some tips, you will need to check hue/saturation, you have some mistakes there. Also check for scale, those river rocks look to large compared to rest of scenery. Then you have some fuzzy trees and elements in your matte. Also, perspective, check it one more time

Greetings

M

hello Rievilo,
you have composed it very well, however i think you will need to work a bit more on color correction. also, the middle portion[stones n water] looks more desaturated. try to fix it.

just a suggestion..

Glad to hear that. So where do you live now and where do you work?

I am still freelancing but thinking of moving somewhere also, not yet sure where

I'm in Montreal working for an advertising agency based in Quebec city doing regular freelances from home. It's really the beginning for me.
I arrived almost 4 months ago. The first two months, you have to deal with administration and to find an apartment, to move in it, to learn the city and make networks ... so it takes almost two months. after that it's you have more time for looking for job.

There are a lot of video games and vfx companies here. But it's still freelances jobs, or 6 months jobs inside the company.
One of my good friend from Paris just arrived. He called a known video game company with a very very good portfolio. And they gave him a test for a concept art project and it has been successful. So one of the key is being patient, professional at 300% and proactiv in the way to find a job and contact people.

But you have to know that in Quebec Province, "french" people ask to the (new) citizens to speak FRENCH and English. It's like a huge Asterix village in the middle of north America.
PS : Universal and two others companies will open offices here in Montreal this year.
but well if you just speak English fine well, it works too ! you can fine a lot of anglophones here too. Life is cool here. Nature in the middle of the town, and Springtime is coming right away !
Of course Toronto, Ontario or the west coast can offer good perspectives in this kind of visual industries.

It's a big decision to move. It takes time and money. But between us, this summer I'm marrying the first reason why I did it.

I really like the whole foreground area, very crisp and detailed. I also like the little chaos in the midground and the idea of the great water fall in the beackground, but you should propably decide for a strong focal point and try to establish kind of a visual path for the eye through the "chaos" by means of lights and darks. And the big tree in the middleground still looks a bit flat to me.

Cheers

Right ! Thanks guys !
I've been obstinate by this three...
I've loose my point in this matte.
well ! I try something tonight.
I like too the wild chaos and I tried to keep it but without the ruins.
I worked on two others ideas. It's just rough works without the structures. Let know what do you think.
And, I found this document in internet and I wanted to share it with you guys.
Thanks and see you soon !
