Fallen Beauty

Matte painting

Back in May a few fellow painters took part in a small contest, I been the only one who couldn't enter :) decided to have a go all the same. I worked on it for a week or so then lost the original file, restarted and picked it up again over the weekend. To be honest losing the original file was a blessing in disguise, redoing the whole thing probably resulted in a more pleasing result. Always see the good in bad i guess :)

So, was this painted based off of an actual image/picture taken? If so, what's the original picture look like? Where is it located?
everlite's avatar
I no longer have the original image reference, but it was based on the natural history museum in London, UK

This is completely beautiful. It actually somehow expresses a scene I had in my head for a story I am writing. I could never express it, yet this seems to be it completely. Thanks....

Absolutely beautiful work! It is so realistic that were it not for your description about it being a matte painting, I would have asked where this place is!
