    Huuum just looking at it, one question come to my mind : is the big light on the floor coming from the top or from the flower ? If it come from the flower, you should reinforce the glow arround it...

    I like the mood and the composition, but I think you can work more on some part. The foreground rock for exemple doesn't work well, as the big tree on the right in the background (looks like a wall actually). You can use the light if it come from the flower to reflect on some objects arround (rocks edges, branchs, some grass part...)

    Have a good and creative day !

    One thing I notice is that you seem to be positioning elements in the composition the same distance from each other, like polka dots, specifically the dark creatures and the light specks around the flower. Try bunching some together and spreading others out to make it feel more natural and less 'designed'.

    Good work Leoz, I really like the painting. Perhaps add more depth? since the the focal point is the flower. Here is a quick example, dark blueish violet for atmospheric perspective in a dark environment.
