Yeti(Test of Matte Painting)
This is my first matte painting.Photoshop 7
I hope it will please.
I have made it without copy part of picture with tools(no stamp), but working only with brushes..also all the damn fur of the Yeti!

I like the idea of using the red to draw a bit of focus on the creature, but it might be a better idea of using blood of some deer or something the creature is eating, you can also use a blood trail to lead the eye of the viewer trough your image. can be a strong compositional thing

like that last one a lot, the fur is very cool, and the background is suitably impressive.
wondered about a few things though:
Is he meant to be skidding down the slope because the loose stuff makes it look like he is
When you said you hadn't copied parts of the image, were you meaning infact that you had? Because that rock bottom left is a straight clone of the left photo (darkened and then snowed on), the top right photo is in the centre of the image and the bottom right is used on the right in the distance.
other than this little misunderstanding very smooth indeed.

You might want to bump up the contrast on the fur so that it matches with the levels of the shadows on the rocks. Make sure to use cool colors for shadow instead of grey.

Mort< Not natural but I love that!
Evil< I don't really love the blood in an illustration.
I use blood sometimes but often for dark picture. When it is necessary to show something bleeding.
young paddy1< Yes he is certainly love to slide..
There is a misunderstanding.
I am bad to express.
I meant that I do not have to use the tool stamps after having taken the fragments of photos.
I even repainted a little bit above.
steak-tron< Thank you!!
Well, as I said, I love the red eyes, and the strange in this.
jtroughton< For me there is enough work on this test.
Lot of small parts aren't perfects but if I should change all wich do not working well, in 4 days I will be always on!

A funny deviation by Mikrokingkong

Love the process and everything, the final image is waay cool, though I admit that the picutre would be better off without the tumbling blurs of snow from his feet/hands. It doesnt make sense, it would be more poignant without them.
And the deviation by Mikro...hilarious!!!! lol
BTW, I've always wondered - what IS a matte painting?

Wow. I really like it. For some reaon, he doesn't look as real as the mountains. I dunno if its the scale, the red eyes, or the way the snow is rolling up in front of him, something doesn't look exactly right. Still a great pic. Those mountains are awesome.
I don't spellcheck...
