Unhappy matte try out

This is my first matte painting. The first image is my attempt-not quite perfect- at altering a photo from summer to winter. The second image is the original photo-actually one of the houses where American Beauty was filmed at. Comments welcome.

This looks great! That must have been some long hours until you got that result, if I look at all the detailing you have done there.
I have been reading about matte paintings the other day, because of an assignment I took upon me for a small company and I was intrigued how a technique like that could stay in the industry that long. I mean from the beginning of filming they already used and nowadays it has its' electronic version.
Fascinating stuff you have made, I am very curious for your next project.

Greetings,

Martin.

The effects of the snow are really good. I hope I don’t seem too picky here, but I would suggest changing the color of the sunlight on the house. Right now it reads as a warmish light (like a summer light). Whereas if this were a winter scene, the color of the sunlight on the house would be cooler looking (a more bluish grey) as it comes through cool winter skies.

Yeah! That has a more wintery feel to it.

It looks great except for the snow on the ends of the branches. Winter branches shed their leaves and don't hold as much snow. Some spindly twigs should hold a bit of snow on the top of the twigs until they taper off and are too small to hold any. Like the spindly fingers of Jack Frost. I have seen my share of winter branches here in Michigan!

The tree in the right was a pretty full one with green leaves so it was difficult to mold into a winter tree, but heres an update.

That looks better...now how about a touch of life like some footprints in the snow walking towards the door* or a snowman?
(*No one ever walks on the shoveled walk....that would be too easy! They always walk across the snowy yard!) Just a suggestion! Looks great!
