waterfall matte painting

And now for something completely different .
a little exercise on matte painting.
Hey , Look , the sexy toons guy do some prof work too , ha ha .

This is a mix of photos and painting .
I collected some images of buildings , vegetation and water , and mix all together to compose this fantasy scene .
as an example , originaly , that castle was side by side , and just half the waterfalls are photos , most of them are painted .

In my last update , I added a Cable car ( totally painted)

BTW , all in photoshop cs2 , in 12 hours .

you can see the wip on my other page.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what exactly does "matte" mean? Is that the word for when you combine photographs with digital painting to make art?

I guess if you google "Matte painting" you will have better answers for your question , with billions of examples online .

its powerful yet a tiny logical notice
since i am a geotechnical engineer the cast with castle with the waterfall underneath it can not sustain it will fall sooner or later :)

I love the little triangle part on the left in front of the waterfall, it reminds me of Minas Tirith from lord of the rings. :D
great job.
