Second post on here, really like this place so far.
My first post was a lava environment that I gave up on, I decided it was maybe to hard for someone with very little background experience.
So this is my second attempt, Ive drawn this place before only it had the same floating jellyfish from the lava environment, heres a link
Anyways, Im going for pretty much the same feel as the first time i drew this only I wanted to have a strong light source from an angle, so in this concept its changing from day to night.
That way I could play with the lighting. The only thing giving me trouble are the crystals.
Im not done and I think what I'll add is a little bit of stronger lighting on the left side were the sun is setting, there is no sunset color scheme because there is no atmosphere and I thought that it would be distracting.
The grass will be done like normal and I only plan on putting a few highlights on them and some soft ones on the rocks on the floating islands.
great idea, i think all the rocks are going in the same direction which takes away from believability. Add more variations. Also don't forget your highlights and shadows.

I cant beileve I didnt do that XD Thanks so much for pointing it out, I'll be sure that the first thing I do is change directions, since at first i wanted the shadows to go the same way but totally forgot they can do that no matter which way the crystal faces. total brainfart.
