If you get the lighting correct, the mood will usually follow. I suggest you make one ambient blue-ish light source from the sky. And treat the orange and magenta light from the windows and crystals as point sources with a lot of fall-off. Right now i think the magenta crystal light is too over-powering.
Well... What kind of mood were you going for?
You didn't really share a lot of info.
You can just call me Cam.
Posting smaller images would help when defining the mood. It's also easier to work on a smaller canvas when doing it.
I think zelda_geek did quite a cheerful and colourful overpaint, but you went for something a bit darker. The thing is that it doesn't work that well with the vivid colours of the windows and cristals.
If you don't know what kind of mood you want, then you're likely not going to succeed at capturing it in a painting. In order to understand how to get a particular mood, you first need to understand what particular things create mood.
You need to look at images or places that you think are "cold but inhabited" and try to figure out what it is about these sights that gives them their particular punch. Then you can incorporate that information in your own painting.
