Hello, I'm new here and this is my first post.
Just thought I would start up a running thread of my personal WIPs for a little self improvement during my "off time." I love critiques, so if you have any to offer, I most humbly appreciate the time that you take to write them.
Starting off, I thought I'd kick it off with a little matte painting to get warmed up with. Here's the layout so far. I'll develop this further tomorrow =)
Latest update in attachment.

can't think of anything else to do to it...might call it done...
You have the light source coming from different directions. The light on the castle is clearly coming from the left side of the painting but the clouds it is coming from the front and the cliffs on the left aren't in shadow. Their shadow must be at least as dark as the shadow on the castle since they are all under the same light source.
Composition is great! Made me think of the Dark Tower.
ahh yes, you're absolutely right dpaint! thanks for pointing that out; I didn't notice it for some reason.
and thanks for the compliment as well ovicristo =)
