Not so good, around the house you will see the blue color from the original blue sky, the treebrushes are to dark against the scene :psychotic:

But a good try to copy the tutorial from here -> [link]

Even though its a haunted house, its a pretty one lol just because of the little details on it, and the forked stairs, and all the levels of it. i particularly like that little porch on the 2nd story :D id always liked old houses like this lol so you said it was made with a picture and you added all the damaged parts. this is a realy house then? with the forked stairs? ive just never seen a house with them :D you did a very good job :D :D

I did that tut too..I think you got a very nice result from it. How did you do the lightnings? I wasn't able to get them right when I tried. My result is at [link] btw. I think you should include the original, it's always interesting with matte paintings.
