    Well, I think, you have realy great ideas for your terrains, they all look original and awesome! :D But perhaps you need to sharpen your skills a bit more, and then you will get perfect. :)

    I like the picture, but I think u should adjust the lifghting in it, because the portal very bright, yet there is no sign of it on the main terrain :)

    I really love "The Visitor".
    It has a nice atmosphere to it and I like the angel; that "slightly turned view", or whatever :p

    Monolith but specially the visitor are really good. Is there a way to learn from your work? Like.. to see how you made those effects.

    A good thing to do is create a copy of the image and put blend mode to Overlay/Color Dodge w/e (in photoshop at least). It increases contrast and makes it look better :) Other than that i don't know what to tell you, it's just painting.

    Also new one:
    This land has been plagued with constant storms for centuries, earning its name: Storm Valley.

    I love the terrain-look and feel of your art mate.
    - And I do have to inquire:

    Do you make basic terrains of these before you draw them? :p

    I must also say that my favorite is most definitively "The Visitor."
    - But then again, I guess that could easily be deduced by anyone who knows my preferences.
