Shackles of a Conquered Monster by Kaioshen Shackles of a Conquered Monster by Kaioshen
Found out yesterday that I won the recent CGChannel mattepainting contest (bottom matte paint won, which is surprising because it wasn't finished). I'm not really happy with either one, but I am happy that one of them was able to win.

The plate was provided for us in case anyone is wondering why they look alike. The theme of the contest was Peter Jackson's King Kong.

how long you take to finish one of those? I have a really pain in the ass lack of skill, I take too long to paint, so environment takes a life to get finished, and its not due the amount of detail

You should definitely try it out, they're fun. Only knock on them would be that there isn't a great ton of feedback, but you can still learn a lot from the fellow members.

Great that you won Bob. I like the dramatic and scenic context of these pieces. The "lens" effect seems a bit overdone, I feel I need to squint my eyes particularly with the bottom piece; maybe needs 3d glasses. I am sure you are aware of the things you would have completed; but in case of use, I offer some suggestions. Those monoliths in the bottom piece do not seem highly integrated with the surroundings, and the ledge seems rather too smooth (almost smudged in places). In the top piece there are some smudged mountain range tops (though the detailing in general is excellent). Something seem strange about the perspective of that ruin in the top piece, although it seems fairly well integrated (maybe needs some more overgrowth though).

Thanks man, always welcome critiques and I appreciate the time you took to do so. I agree with you on the perspective issues since I really didn't use a system for either one, just pretty much eyeballed it. I had a displacement map set up for the cliff in the bottom matte, but it wasn't working the way I had hoped, which is where that smoothness comes in. I'm not really happy with either one, but I'm glad people can enjoy it. Thanks again Kyle!
