I haven't really had anything worth submitting here for a while. I'm a bit hesitant on uploading this, as it is a fairly rushed project and I don't really see it as "done." Not many people like how symmetrical the composition is, but that's the way I intended it to be.
Anyway, this is a fairly strange image. I rendered out a bridge I had modelled and imported that into Photoshop. This probably wasn't such a good idea as it forced the composition to be worked around the bridge, and led to perspective problems that still persist. To satisfy certain class requirements, I overlayed wood textures onto the bridge, and composited a photo of a sky (which I ended up distorting and painting into). The rest (bridge moss, trees, mountains, etc) was hand painted in Photoshop. You can see the bridge I rendered and worked on at my website.
Hopefully I have time to re-work this a bit more.
