I love what you did with the SSG study! A fun transformation, and he's well rooted in the surroundings. I also like the contrast between some of the harder edges and soft transitions. The main difference with the reference seems to be the saturation or depth of the colours. I'd have to sample and check in Photoshop, but your image seems more muted.
Nice work on the job tests. Keep us posted on the outcome and their feedback! To me, the woods could use a stronger focal point (or perhaps they just requested an empty stage since it's matte?). The building you've placed on the cliff seems too large. also note how the 'bridges' you've placed in the distance have softer edges than the mountains.
Love those last studies. Great portrait too! Subtle stuff.
You are just steamrolling along o.O really busting out some great stuff, I adore the painting of the little girl, has so much life too it, although the shadow on the left side makes it seem flat in contrast to the light on the right, problem is I would have no idea how to suggest fixing that, if it even needs to be :/
Wow! great updates The Noomi portrait is solid. I love the matte painting studies, a couple of them could do with the values being a bit darker from what I can see but otherwise they look great! What course will you be doing?
Finally finished with this one. Included are some progress shots. Quite a learning experience overall and this is something I haven't done before. Which is a lot of photo work but also a lot of painting in a smaller scale.
