Think about your composition more. It's too un-even now, many things happening in many directions while you have large areas where nothing is happening.
Your objects are not working together in this one, try having them in a similar mood. Like all your people running away from the giant, while he's crushing buildings or they could be hiding while watching some david vs goliath fight with your little hero.

yep I agree with MorteM, the composition is very confusing.
Think about what the most important thing is you want to tell; is it the giant versus the lil' guy, or the people running away with the giant crushing and stomping all over in the background?
Also, I think the huge mushroom in the foreground against the giant in the background doesn't work. The mushroom makes the giant look small somehow.

hey thanks alot fellas i see your guysz point. many things are going on and i need to focus on one part . and i realize that the bg isnt working either mainly colorwise. im thinking of warming it up a bit to bring the giant more in focus and maybe put like a burning village to give him more of a story. i gotta tell yah..i kinda like the mushroom and i want to keep it. any suggestions on how to make it work. maybe blur it out or make it smaller? ill experiment with it more but anything can help me out. thanks alot dudes!.

Hmm I wouldn't blur it and I'm not sure if making it smaller will help. Maybe put some reference beside it, show that it is a normal sized mushroom but seen from up close. Right now for all we know it could be a giant mushroom with normal sized humans on it
Also, the further things are away from the viewer, the paler and lighter it gets (atmospheric perspective), maybe you can use it more extensively (the highlights on the trees in the front are almost of the same value of the trees on both sides of the giant). Always keep in mind however that it is about the giant in this picture.

The giant doesn't look as huge in this forest of Giant Redwoods?

heres an update. darkend the fg and made the mushroom smaller(yes, its suppose to be a gaint mushroom). im starting another mushroom on the other side to balance it out more. i still dont like the bg color but thats what ive got so far. made the gaint a little bigger too. thanks everyone for the suggestions and please keep it coming. thanks.

Are you going to put that figures running? I liked that idea but maybe you need to think a little more on them... also I think they help to understand the scale. ...well however I believe it's better to not think too much on these details at the moment...
I have nothing to say yet. It looks very interesting, waiting for more updates.

hey thanks for the kind words dudes. umm im still at a lose of where the light source is coming from and what time of day this should be. im kinda leaning towards having it be night but theres a burning village behind the trees, and the figure in front of the gaint would be probably holding a lantern. im still thinking about it.
as for the people in the fg, im gonna put them in later. right now im just thinking about the overall enviornment and composition of the piece. but im thinking of adding more people than before. maybe grouped behind the big tree root.
im also thinking of taking out the house. it seems to nice and quaint for the effect im going for(which im still not sure of :/). hopefully ill have another update tonite. thanks again

alright im diggin this so far..im enjoying the lighting and the mood..i like it better without the little house too..any suggestions and critques PLEASE!!

The mood in that last one is much better! I really like his left hand, good job on that. I would give those 2 tree's on the left en the right from the giant more detail, some grooves or something.
maybe a silhouette of another little dude in the front that is watching from behind the tree, just an idea though...

hey thanks man and i still have a long ways to go before i go into more detail, even though ive already gotten a lil ahead of myself, and ill def put more people in there once ive got the environment done. so heres another update. thanks
