It's been a long time since I got to play with Photoshop. I like the style you chose in this picture. It bring to mind pictures out of national geographic, miles of horizon with a huge sky. This is a very cool piece. The huge thunderheads, and the purple/white tone all lend to a very ominous, force of nature feel. Leaving out a specific color for the surfaces gives more strength to the sky, as it kind of washes out the ground and shadows. I imagine a burning bright moon barely obscured behind low, still clouds. A few white beams cutting through to the ground. What I would suggest most of all is brushes, particularly with the clouds, and with the contrasting parts of the rock wall. I think very distinct textures would bring this piece to life, without sacrificing its caricature quality. I could see it with exaggerated texture, brightly contrasting light and shadow, and a powerful moon to give it a bit more punch. All in all, I would like to think of this as a great concept piece, waiting to be revisited. Very cool.

dA has a huge selection of brushes to look through, [link]

Awesome. You're really good with landscapes. I'm kind of afraid to try them. :XD:

You should just give them a try. Can't get better if you ignore them =) Attack them head on and I know you'll be able to do it.

I love the perspective, especially its complexity. I also like the shading of the 'white' parts. The texture, especially in the background rocks (?), is also impressive, but it might be a good idea to try different brushes to make it more vivid. I was also a bit confused by those vertical light lines on the left. It seems to me that they are supposed to be highlights, but they look more like snow strips. In case they are still highlights, the light gradation should probably be smoother (but I am not sure). Or just get thinner at their lower part. Sorry for expressing myself in such an awkward manner.
But these are in fact minor remarks. Great job, looking forward to seeing more of your art!
