aberrodes, I replied to your other thread regarding making the switch to digital. Regarding this piece, It's lookin good. Keep pushing.
Matte paintings are supposed to look photo real but don't forget that traditional matte painters did work in oil that looks photo real and their work continues to trick audiences to this day.
Just cuz something is hand painted and maybe looks a little painterly, doesn't mean it's not going to look real to an audience, you'll be surprised how often audiences are tricked.
Photo real is not the same thing as using photos.
