City Vista Matte Painting by Hideyoshi City Vista Matte Painting by Hideyoshi
Hey, haven't posted in a while. Hope everyone is doing fine!
I want to fill my portfolio with some matte paintings.
This is one I based on a photo I took in NY.
Not anything crazy, very basic extensions etc.
Any crits? Does it look photorealistic enough?

Only thing that looks out of place, or unrealistic — is the collapsing part of the building in the foreground. The water could probably use some work on the left near the bridge — it looks very still compared to the water on the right. One thing that would really set this off is adding some graffiti on some of the older buildings and possibly reintroduce one of the older Bridges. One thing I love about futuristic cityscapes based on real cities is when they keep historic structures in there — as if humans were conscious enough to preserve the our history forever.

It's hard to tell what's photo and what's painting. A perfect blend.

It is too obvious that the background parts are drawed in. The buildings in the foreground have more dark colors compared to lighter ones in the background. Ok, there has to be some difference, but the conversion is to rough in my opinion.
