    Some suggestions

    Hey Wagon,
    This is off to a good start. Some of the things that I think will help unify this more is to have a consistant theme with your lines. On one you have curved lines and another you have straight. If you went with the straight lines on all of the monolithic pieces this would tie them together better. Another suggestion is to make the purple shadows consistant on all the objects. There are two monoliths or cliffs in the background that are devoid of the same treatment as the rest of the objects. I love the colors that you have in the sky. There is a very solid patch of the orange color on the floating left building that could be feathered out so it doesn't stand out as much. Also, on the foreground geometry, I would try to "render" in some depth, as if the glowing piece were chiseled into the stone. One minor gripe, I would go with a different color than the lime green, but you may be wanting the high contrast.

    Keep up the good work, and keep after it.

    -Porter

    A couple things you could do are to unify the perspective (including giving depth to the closest one), and to increase the size or heighten the clarity on the blurry monolith. Being too close to focus at its current size, it decreases the scale of the rest of them. Also, to accentuate the sense of depth, you could try shifting the atmospheric color as you move back in space.

    I'm not sure What I'm looking at. Needs to be more clearly layed out in composition and form. Lets start with the canvas are the proportions right ?
    for what your trying to convey, are the shapes supposed to float? Work out
    what the image is trying to say and how it says it with perspective and
    viewer positions first .Then start to work out simple block shapes and colours.
    Don't fret about the details until the last steps. Hope that gets you started
    anyway. We all need to help one another. peace!

    I dont mind the line variation. Looks like you are working on some focus issues which is good. One design element might be to unify the green lines in the pieces to make an overall pattern for the image. Then there oughtta be a character or something relatable in the middle.

    the lighting seems inconsistant withthe super light satiuration one gets in a desert environment. it needs to be solid and practiacally tangible

    if you are working in PS make a layer and totally eggagerate you lighting and shadows. you can always make it transparent or get rid of it.

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
