imaginative snow mountain landscape
Recently I've been going back and revisiting old works, and decided to give some attention to this. The concept behind it is a world where magic-possessing humans inhabit, and their powers naturally distort the land around them. Or something like that.
I think I've just been looking at it too long and could use a second opinion. I've been trying to flex my from-imagination muscles but not opposed to reference.
Thanks for your time!"A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

Also values and tangents are making it confusing - whether things are floating or balanced on the landscape.
Pay attention more to the planes of the landscape and the light/values. Right now you have an essentially flat foreground plane...with a blue sky...in a snowy/arctic environment...and you painted it black.

It reads pretty well as a thumbnail (it's what caught my eye as I was scrolling down); the water/reflection looks nice as well.
As Jeff mentioned, that foreground is pretty confusing.-I often post from my phone; so please excuse the typosSketchbook
