I’ve been working on this picture for quite a while and it’s almost finished. However, I’m stuck at creating a decent background, since I’m not really experienced with image manipulation. What I would like to do is put a picture of a forest in the background of my rendered image and match the colors with the rendered image (using gimp).
This is my closest attempt, but the foreground still kind of jumps off the background and it’s too blue… Also this is the feeling I’m trying to recreate. I haven’t done anything similar before so I’m not sure what I am looking for but it’s certainly not all right, so could you suggest some things to look into? (maybe tutorials, plugins or tools I should use, etc.)
