Its too blurred on the left side. I made a mistake there. I left a layer on top of another. I didn't noticed it untill you said it. Next update it will be deleted. Thank you very much..

Great notion there. I will take a look at it. It increased depth, but indeed takes attention as well. Thanks a lot.

Myself, I'm not really into matte painting, but looking at your work really gives me incentive and inspiration, and also some guidance as well

And about your work - like I said, it looks really good. All the details you added fit very well inside the scene. One thing I wanted to note is that orange leaf on the right side. While giving the scene depth, it takes out the focus from the scene. I suggest you make it blend more with the rest of the wood.

Anyway, great job, Tjerk!
Woow I like the concept Colours are looking good. Very detailed work

Nice Style. watch at the scene and paint some sharper details left side.i think the orange leaf in front is out of scene. may you can recolor it or remove the leaf is the better way. Some parts are to blurry. I´m looking forward to the next steps.

Great Job.

Wow, this is exotic scene, using tropical or maybe Asian culture. So far so good dude.
To make it dramatic, mistic and misterious, try to add purple or red fog to the scene.
Hope this can help you.

Nice picture composition and good integration, I think the render can be improved further ... for now the colors are too saturated, I'm not a big fan of fuzzy too ... but it's a choice. For me, work a little more mysterious ... it's my feeling.
> Nice work

Hi Everybody,

here is another update. I tried to do something different here. I listened to the comments and i changed some elements so that the picture plays with the eyes a little more. Also i added some more mysterious parts to the picture.I also deleted the orange leaf and changed it with another plant to create the depth. I like it much better know. The eyes goes all around the picture. I will show a progress sheet soon. I hope you like this version better than the other.

Just for fun i will show the starting picture and the one i have now. Its always fun to see what happened in the meantime..

Here is the original picture



Here is the last update ( There are some blue toning faults in the upperright , i will fix that )

Hi, thanks for comment. More depths of field, i can try that. I used the plant in front to create a depths of field and the picture is a bit bright, but it differs on displays and personally i kinda like it. Ill listen to every comments to and ill take it in concideration. Thanks for your opinion!

Nice work. I think it looks really good so far. I don't really understand the glowing trees, but I think it would be a better effect if you had some heat distortion there and maybe some light smoke. Also, I don't much care for the light in the back of the image. That big opening makes it seem like you're walking away from something, instead of toward it (even though I see something big in the distance...it's very faint). This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it takes a lot of the mystery away from the photo. It seems more like an image you'd take during a tour on vacation than an image that's supposed to entertain. If I were you, I'd focus on making that opening at the end of the walk a bit more looming. It doesn't have to be dark, but I'd certainly "bring it forward" so that we feel more like we're walking toward something we don't understand.

The blending and such looks really nice, though. Good technical work.

Thank you very much. I actually like the light, but to add something as heat distortion is an amazing idea. I have to take a look if i can pull that off. Ill take it in consideration and try to get it better. Thank you

you're on the right path, keep the good work
The left is really good but I'm still skeptical about the saturation of colors ...
