I wanted to try my hand at a fantasy art image and this is my first attempt, i have included my 3 base images in the mod section for those interested, i am reasonably happy but it does look a little bare, like there should be some other element on the bank of the lake as well as the girl, also i tried to light one of the windows in the castle but i couldn't get it to look realistic.

The fairys i created from a free brush i downloaded from deviantart, also the birds are a photoshop brush.

I would appreciate any advice from anyone that has done this stuff before.

the lake is from 'stock exchange and the girl is from deviant art stock.

This works very well, and the composition you have made from the individual images is seamless. Really great work.

Good work Terry !

As mentioned , seamless and believable. The touch of gold is wonderful set against the ambiance of the castle.

Maybe the big birds in the sky are a distraction , place them out and the figure gains its real sense of depth against the b.g. Their reflections needed a hint of motion blur to match the ripples on the water .

The tiny birds are a great touch.

Overall though , great scaling , blending and the most important part , matching the light source to the components. Look forward to more.

its an excellent image,
especially for a first try,

i think i would have bought the castle up bigger and nearer

but really its perfect as it is
and looks original, which is always good

paree

to light a window,
i would try taking a tiny piece of one of the yellow lights

and placing it in the window to fit and then fade it,
it should look good
