I would say that the general fading of everything far away or lower in the picture does a good job of suggesting some sort of mist effect, but perhaps it would be easier to ID if the change was more gradual, or with shifts in its density, nevertheless, I don't think anything here needs a change.
I could definitely picture this being a scene in an escape game, only it would be the best escape game art I have every scene! It reminds me of the nether world or a world infected by something or missing something. The staircase seems to dissipate into specks and shadows. The faces on the wall also look like something you'd find in an ancient tribe environment.
However, the background looks somewhat lacking for an ancient environment. It just seems like there is nothing there at all. If there was some indication of mist, a cave, or a sandstorm then it might be different, but the background looks empty and it takes away from the picture. Also, are the five things suspended in midair torches?
Still, I really like the detail you put into this and I look forward to your next post.
If it was a level on a game i would spend hours exploring it!
This is beautiful. I love ever subtle detail in the landscape.
