    Coming along nicely. Like the coloring with the grandfather oak tree. Really like the (dragon??) skull. Don't really dig the grid though(is that just temporary to help you with placement?). Waiting for the color to come back also as it looked fairly nice ....

    The one thing that first pops out is the thick grid. The second thing I noticed was that the trees all have the same shading - there's this light patch in the upper left and a light squiggle in the middle. It makes them look like stamped-on trees despite each having a different shape and different trunk. But that top-left light patch is visible on every tree so I saw it as a repeated pattern (but I know it's not). The rest looks pretty good.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Yea, I noticed that too... just forgot to mention when I saw it.

    I still see the spots and squiggles in the trees and a blur spot that looks out of place. Looks fab other than these things.

    Maybe throw in a wagon or horse or maybe a critter/monster but it looks done to me.

    I am awaiting the next update. I do hope you would add back in some of the green from the original image or some other color variations... Perhaps add some additional visual interest on the cliffs that are currently empty(trees, and/or perhaps a multi level cliff structure on the right hand one..)

    This is looking quite superb, it just needs a few little tweaks. Also, I noticed that your trees have shadows on the opposite sides. Left trees, left shadows... right trees, right shadows. If nothing else, you need to fix that at least.
