First day, first post, need your critiques.
This is my first post in CA and first day as an active member user. I am posting one digital painting that I have recently finished??. Well, i am saying that I have finished because I am probably tired of playing with this as It has been sitting in my hard drive for a while. There are few things about this piece that I seriously need some advice. The few things that I am aware of, you might tell me some others.
1- The perspective: The figure in the very front looks so big and tall compare to the very front building. Assuming thet the distance between the figure and the steps of the palace where the stone paved pathway leads. I could not really figure out what shoul I do to overcome this problem. Shoul I just scale down the figure in the front, which will be easier option as it is in its own layer. Then again the size of that figure matches the other objects around him. Or should I scale the front palace up, or narrow the end of the pathway down to give it a deeper perspective and work on the stone pavements accordingly.
2- Lighting: As you can see the light comes from different directions to different elements.
I would really appreciate if you can comment of those problems that I have mentioned and more that you have spotted.

i think you should narrow down the path , it probably isn't the simple way out but i think it would be the best

Double check your perspectives - they look a little flat, especially at the middle ground where you go into the castle.
On a more positive note - the clouds are beautiful!
How silly do you look with butterflies flying about your head??

the first thing i noticed that is bothering me the most, is the fact that you've completely centered the composition.
The path leads down the direct middle of the painting, and the castle is tallest in the middle. this divides your painting into two parts which makes it difficult for the viewers eye to flow around the picture.
I know too much work has gone into the painting now to change something so major, but keep in mind for next time: You need to find some sort of balance that keep the eye moving around the painting instead of right up the middle and then out. having the path leading inwards isnt terrible,
but instead of the highest point of the castle being dead center...off-set it to the left or right so that the viewer is lead in and then around..
or vice versa: castle in the middle, path leading the eye off to the side and then back inwards..
just something to think about,
i also agree with HecMoney, the path should narrow or the perspective doesnt work..
hope that helps a little
nice texture and color palette though, love the sky
keep at it

The paving stones on the path should get smaller as they approach the horizon.
