    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    @Vyse - Thanx =) 3 and 5 are my fav too till now. I like your concept, even if I'd like to see a bit more of that pit, and the rock over the thorne isn't charming as it could be. Pay attention to be clear on midground, at the moment the read is a bit confused for me especially for second row of rocks. There is a kind of pattern repetition (round rock on the mid ground, square rock, round rock on the back ground), so that area is a bit boring. =D Oh, and I forgot to mentionate the throne itself: make it more intersting =). Now wait for mine, than rip me apart =D

    Vagabond418: If you're feeling lost try adding a main focal point and work out from that. Right now you have a really epic looking cave but no focal point to draw they eye and tell a story.

    After searching for reference images I instantly regretted suggesting this topic. Still I pushed on and bashed together the two attached images.

    Thinking on how best to convey my own fear of spiders.
