    need to bring focus.

    ok- so I had an amazing paintover on this last time I posted. I did what the paintover suggested- and I'm liking it (for the most part). obviously it's not done but my problem is the girl- I want her to be the focus. I thought adding fog would do it- but I'd still like her to pop more!

    Forget the fog - its flattening everything.
    If I squint at this it all becomes the same colour.
    If you want to make her pop - use lighting - this should help give form to the dragon as well.

    No way near right, but hopefully it'll help

    Watch those wings on the forward 'harpy/flying orc', personally I think they're interfering with the dragons mouth (JMO)

    The light source for me is confusing and seems to be different on each entity

    If you want to make the girl the focus, silohuette her head either by moving the wing behind her head now, so her dark head is on a light background or lighten her hair so it stands out against the wing, as it is now. You have all these warm tones in the foreground , cool and lighten the background and the far figure so you get a sense of atmosphere
