I'd suggest making the ship much smaller and the mountain much bigger - really push the differences between the two and you'll end up with a bigger sense of grandeur. :)

that looks pretty neat, and I think you merged most of the stock and painting together quite decently, but you should pay more attention to your colours. your sky is quite vivid, but that does not seem to fit the landscape, you should always try to tie the colours together a bit, to make everything seem like it is coming from the same place.
also, try to refine some elements more, such as the clouds =)
lasts but not least, I find the scale of the ship to be somewhat off, I think it should be larger, to fit its surrounding =)
but for a first attempt at matte painting, this is really good, well done :nod:

You make some decent observations. i agree with the colors, i suppose a bit of planning ahead would help for next time :P. and yes i do see that i need to work on some detail a bit more. but if i make the ship bigger, it would make the mountain seem more like a hill, lol.

I really appreciate your input! it will definitely help my next one, whenever that next one is. Thanks!

well if you want the moutain to still feel large, don't hesitate to paint it larger and make it go off the image. perhaps even add some mist here and there to push that midground back a bit, and you will get a much larger scale :nod:

and you are welcome! :aww:
