Such a boss song, I'm humbled and really glad that a kickass producer like credited me for the inspiration.
It is criminal that this is not on the frontpage.
As a concept piece this is awesome, but you can avoid the criticisms like the one from Jazza by clearly labeling matte-work. You would be surprised at the amount of audience members who will navigate away if they feel that shortcuts were used; but matte-painting is heavily technical based and when labelled as such it is more often viewed for its technical appreciation, rather than artistic merit.
Yeah I understand what you mean. But I consider that most people that are going to see this from all over the internet, will not be so critical to know. I really wasn't just going for a matte-painting. I was influenced by the use of textures in a concept art. Not necessarily a matte-painting.
And if people look at concept work negativity knowing they used shortcuts they don't know concept art. haha.
