Fallen Beauty by everlite Fallen Beauty by everlite
Matte painting

Back in May a few fellow painters took part in a small contest, I been the only one who couldn't enter :) decided to have a go all the same. I worked on it for a week or so then lost the original file, restarted and picked it up again over the weekend. To be honest losing the original file was a blessing in disguise, redoing the whole thing probably resulted in a more pleasing result. Always see the good in bad i guess :)

So, was this painted based off of an actual image/picture taken? If so, what's the original picture look like? Where is it located?

I no longer have the original image reference, but it was based on the natural history museum in London, UK

temple green 
where once was silence
now the noise of living things
shapes now lost in memory echos
maybe ghosts still linger here

This is completely beautiful. It actually somehow expresses a scene I had in my head for a story I am writing. I could never express it, yet this seems to be it completely. Thanks....

Absolutely beautiful work! It is so realistic that were it not for your description about it being a matte painting, I would have asked where this place is!

Wow...this is...simply stunningly enchanting! If I had a "favoritest favorites" gallery, I'd be adding this to it. :)
As for having to redo it...that is so true...the first work you did was probably wonderful practice to make this all the more incredible!

The detail in this is crazy! It looks like it could almost be a photo, especially when you zoom in on the light on the trees in the upper right hand corner. I love the vines coming in through the roof. :D

This is amazing. A great inspiration and helping a lot with my writing, so thanks for that. But I can't quite figure out (since my architectural knowledge is so limited): what kind of building is that?
