Prometheus by ErikShoemaker Prometheus by ErikShoemaker
This image was created for a competition on [link], where the objective was to turn the following concept art into a photorealistic matte painting: [link]

The contest was fun and very challenging. I worked a good 50 hours on my entry and there are still many things I'd like to change but I just can't work on it anymore and time until deadline has run out anyway.

You can also find a couple of wip pictures in this thread: [link]

I don't expect to win anything, but I learned a lot during the process and now I have a cool piece in my gallery. It will also be part of my 2013 calendar. :)

Hope you like it!

okay this is my 8th critique ever so don't kill me..um

This is amazing to say the least the details and the time it took you to make this shows that there was a lot of effort put into it
the blue and the clouds make it stand out to even anyone

It's very well done and simply breath taking especially the moon? planet? looks to be the main focus but I assume it was meant to be the air craft rather then the moon or planet.

I wish I could say more but this is as close as I get to a solid critique. so forgive me if I messed up I hope you think this is fair enough for you

I love how this picture just takes you to another world by just looking at it. Your work is indeed very detailed and I can tell you took a lot of time working on it.I like the clouds that surround the portrait, it somehow makes think of me of being in sky or looking at oceans parted. Science fiction is always interesting, to think of the possible road in the future the world may take. The idea of having an eclipse amplifies the theme, and the sun coming from the corner brightens up the whole image Just looking at this exquisite work of art is breath-taking. Very well done!!!!

How does one manipulate clouds like that? Are there certain tools? Or did you paint it all using a brush?

In essence I used tons of different photos, selecting only certain areas of the cloud and transforming it to get the perspective right. Then you have to adjust the color and contrast to blend it appropriately. It helps a lot to use only photos with similar lighting conditions, but it will still take plenty of time and patience!
This set contains some brushes which can mimic clouds, I used them to improve the blending of the various photos: www.deviantart.com/art/My-Brus…

Ahh I see, thanks a bunch for your help, I was trying to make clouds by brushes alone, I guess that didn't turn out too well especially with MY painting skills hahahaha.
