This took a few hours but I'am relatively pleased with it. The colours amongst the creatures work well together and i think there is a good contrast of dark and light spread around them. The sky brings the island forward, which was what i was aiming for, but it has been commented that it is perhaps a little too striking, that I should have gone for a more neutral colour. This is indeed a worthy observation but its such a dramatic area of the story that I wanted the sky to be quietly menacing. I loved doing this pic but I am glad its finished as it was time-consuming and delicate work...It has been a valuable learning curve tackling this type of pic, and a good exercise in patience too!
