zombies, fog, two headed dead creatures from the mist, and devil shapes in the clouds... love it!

I actually really like the clouds. I think their expressively surrealist nature adds a lot to the piece and fits well with the rendering style of the figures at the bottom. They draw your eye back up towards the top of what is otherwise an extremely bottom-heavy image, creating a decent sense of balance.

If there is anything about this piece I don't like, it would be the composition. I feel like the statue should be just barely off center - either to the left or right, doesn't matter. Right would give it a more ominous feeling. Otherwise, this is five star illustration for sure!

The guy below hit what I notice. Seems like either snow or dust in the air is missing to give some of the light sources something to bounce off of. Otherwise it's really interesting.

Things I dislike:
- Clouds are over artsy. A simple clouded sky would have much better impact.
- Heart hole seems out of mood and seems to be too frontal. I understand the concept but it should be more merciless iron cold...-ish.
- maybe more blurred light at parts of chain which are further from viewer.
- Face should be stricter.

Likes:
- People
- Texture of material - big like!

I'm not sure what to make of this. I like the depth you have going on in the lower half of the scene. The clouds are a bit distracting though. Love the lighting :)
