Moonlight overture by ImmarArt Moonlight overture by ImmarArt
I watched this Dylon cole tutorial [link] and learned how to properly create a matte painting. I really learned a lot from him and I urge anyone interested in matte painting to look him up! critiques welcome! ^_^

Awesome! Awesome!
I can honestly say that I could so easily see this published in a book, or magic card! The composition is fantastic, it fits awesome with the story telling from left to right. The piece tells just enough to get the idea of what is going on, but it allows enough for the viewer to interpret with their own story. The depth and the values are good as well.
I have to get picky to really pull a critique out of this, so props to you for that!
The char. in the foreground, with the sword, he really stands out from the rock in front. It looks like it is the paintery and the rock is photographic. Which is a difficult fix since the character needs to be rim lighted for this type of piece so I'm not sure on the changes needed. Even then, its minimal, and you did say that this was a matte painting so meh, like I said, I have to get picky... :) Every thing else blends really well so great job on that!

I'll have to say YOUR biggest strength is the mood of a piece. Embrace it and keep on chugging!

Hey thanks a lot! I really appreciate your critiques! You have a good eye and I know that in time you'll be a great artist=) you have a great eye, you just need the technical abilities to be able to put down what's in your head. I think I read on one of your paintings that you use corel painter right? I have some great painter tutorials by ryan church if you're interested. Just send me a note =)

I mainly use Photoshop CS4.I do have Corel Painter 10, but it seems to act finicky with my computer. I would like to work out the kinks and use it more, I love how the brushes act with the canvas. And I would totally love some of those tutorials!
