This is a piece very close to final.  Details will follow once i post the final but as of now it would be greatly appreciated if i could get some feedback on the piece before i forever avert my gaze from it.

Hmm...well, I don't think the wind is working. It looks like it's cluttering the composition a little too much. I think the snow-capped trees need to be lightened up a bit so they show up against the darker treeline behind them as well. Without those wind swirls (which I totally thought would be a sweet idea), that hag is going to show up a lot clearer and a lot cleaner than she is now. I'm not sure yet about the smoke coming out of the houses. The trees in the foreground look good, it's just those middle-ground ones that need a little brightness. The big mountain in the background could be lightened up by maybe 5-10%.

I am still psyched about this.

Im with Sam, i dont think you need those wind swerls they make the image too complicated. I think you can take away the smoke coming from the houses as well because everyone is dead so theres also no reason for it. I would again make that mountain lighter i think the hag stile gets little lost up against it and she should be what catches your eye the back mountain is less important. I think you have enough hear now you just need to take a little out.

thanks pals....although i felt that the language in which the wind is done works, and it would be awesome to try and use them another time, its just too much for this small piece. I also feel that i should redo the trees in the middleground more so like those within the foreground and of course playing with the dark silhouettes of the trees, hag, and mountain until they reach a "clearer, cleaner" final

yeah. i wholeheartedly concur with what the previous gentlemen had to say. I don't mind the wind so much as the middleground trees. right now their snow caps get a little lost in the snow that's falling in the sky. I too wish the hag would show up a little more because i almost didnt see her at all.
