This image was created in Photoshop with mindset of being a matte painting. The image of the house was found on a site I use for photographic resouces and reworked extensively until I had achieved the desired mood. I then worked out from the house and completed the rest of the image with the limited colour palette. The gate was another photo that was reworked extensively to achieve the desired effect. About 20-25 hours week went into creating this image and hopefully will launch be into another field other than graphic design.
