Help! This step is always the hardest and can never do it right
So I just finished a line drawing, but am trying to learn new illustration methods that dont involve masking off areas. I want to paint a Feng Zhu style, which is basically all on one layer. I just finished thsi line drawing but I just cant seem to go anywhere from here.
I need help and direction. I know I'm supposed to give tones and form but I'm just having difficulty doing so.
I also need advice at this stage for future drawings I do, thank you guys!
Basically things were just not going the way I hoped they would.

Well, one of the things i learned from Feng Zhu is that you need to quickly establish your foreground, middle ground and back ground. Also having logical lighting helps.
Otherwise, I think the base concept has some potential, I see that on your second thumbnail you added a wall in front of that obelisk ( spaceship?) .That's good because it shows that you are starting to get how composition works. So keep working on this piece.
Here is a paintover.
A creative artist works on his next composition because he is not satisfied with his previous one. When he loses a critical attitude toward his own work, he ceases to be an artist. - Dmitri Shostakovich

every image has a story find the story find the image......
first I think you would benefit from some gradient overlays to simplify lighting for you...so I was intrigued by this story so far and did a quick version of what I saw as one possible future
anyways this is just me playing with an image I see oddles of potential in....look forward to your results
