    I know close to nothing about matte painting to help you with technique, but I just wanted to say that I think you did a very nice and commendable job turning that first photo into a night scene. I wouldn't mind learning some of the techniques for doing that!

    You did a good job with the first one but the second one the lighting is not consistent and gives a photo collage look to the scene. A strong sense of light would help it and more painting less photo manipulation.

    The size doesn't bother me but the perspective is way off if you look at it the bottom, the ellipes flatten out when they shouldn't, because your horizon line is much lower than the base of the building. You have to move the building or adjust the horizon.

    The first rocks!
    But the second one has many perspective issues, there are almost 2-3 parallel horizons. Even the clouds are looking flat, take care of the lighting there and they will set nicely.
    Also the lighting perspective is a little off. The tree closes to us has some hard sunlight, its rather warm, but the gradation from warm to cold isnt happening much.
    Theres also a lack or atmospheric perspective, the mountains farther off looked blurred out but dont appear that they are far off, maybe play with edges a little bit, get things to merge, do a little play or warm/cold greys there.
    Basically draw over the painting a bit and get the perspective right first, then play with atmospheric perspective and give more soft edges as that will will do away the collage look that the image has right now.

    I hope it helps. But trust your instinct as well. And take any advice with a pinch of salt. Ok maybe not Dpaint, him, he knows what he talks about.

    Hey Nitish. Looks like you fixed the perspective on the little building, which is good. I think the clouds are looking a little too solid still and I suggest darkening up and decreasing contrast on the foreground tree/leaves for better separation and depth.

    You have fixed some things but you still need to get a direction for the lightsource. The light direction is still inconsistent. Choose a strong direction and make everything conform to it. It is too much photo collage right now. My suggestion is to make a pencil study of the scene the way you want it to be and then paint it using the reference as a guide only. Photo manipulation will only get you so far.

    you can create a fake light source by creating a layer above every other, set it to multiply, and choose a color such as blue/gray and start painting shadows on dark sides which are opposite from your light source wherever you decide to place that. But before you start painting, play with the opacity of that layer so it's not too much and really looks like a shadow. For light source, you can do pretty much same but set layers to either light, screen, overlay, color dodge, lighter color. Play with opacities so it's not too much. I suggest you find a better sky, with bigger fluffier clouds and replace the current one with it. Make the image more interesting, add waterfalls around the bottom of that mountain with that tower thing but make them small enough to be noticeable but not overpowering.

    Nice work! Hope to become this good someday.
    And I agree, you have a skill for transitioning the lighting to different moods. Keep up the good work.
