the concept is better, that is not good i think.. well.. is not maybe that fair to question it like this.. but try adding randomness to the snow, the stones etc.. like in the concept

There is problems with your lighting I think. The floor is overlighted, but your light comes from the bih hole in the floor. So your ceiling should be more lighted. Maybe add some diffuse light in the scene, actually it's really sharp.

I really like the concept drawing. I think you should make the giant heart-ice-crystal less regular, make it look like it was carved by chipping away at it.

I would make your FOV wider... and bring the camera down a little more. You really want to feel little in this environment. Looking at the concept I was amazed at how large and vast this cavern must be to have something like that.... and then looking at your picture it looks like someone just took a snapshot from halfway up a midsized cave. The people are much smaller in the concept. Also, maybe offset the camera, having the stairs directly in the middle is sort of poor composition.

MUCH MUCH more like the concept now. Good job

The shape of the ice figure in the concept looks like a heart, but in the work it's not easy to identify the heart shape. It's up to the middle heart identation! It should be deeper. Try it.

alaa ahmed
