I love the composition of this one and the color pallette.
It could be a very cool book cover.

Could you talk a bit about it?

uh, first excuse my bad english, im trying to improve... :D

it's mainly an experiment with a format that supports the height of the sky.
i chosed to place the horizon very far below to 'thicken the mass' of the dark clouds.
after around about 20 minutes there was a hole in the clouds, that's why i decided to paint the evil being underneath. and the eye was a good choice (i think) to place the colors of the sun up there as an eye catcher. don't know if it worked well... :(
i mostly paint how it feels good to me, like brainstorming...
