Looking good! There are so many nice touches, like the castle in the clouds. And everything else of course!

My first instinct looking at this latest shot was, noticing thjat you took out the trees that were sketched in on the sides, which served as a great compositional framing. But now that I've looked at it more - it didn't need them. They made the giants look smaller, and so the theme works better now. Still, it could use a little more room on the very top to let the composition breathe a bit more and to avoid the tangent with the top of the building and the top of the frame.

Compositionally, the only other point that I'd bring up is that the whole left side of the image is really quite empty. I can think of a few suggestions: Crop the image more... Add another giant on the left side of that sunlit filed there (maybe sitting down, leaning against a mountain?) How about a crown od villagers in the very low left? It fits your goal of adding more real people for scale, as well as fills up that left side nicely! :-)

Anyhow, just a suggestion. Great work, I want a large print of it when you're done! ;-)

Yupi, I really love the concept! This reminds of my early age, when I got inspired by those crazy fairytales, and the brothers Grimm and legends.. Great style, the details on the castle are fantastic. I think that the idea of adding people arround is superb, it will contrast the scale of the giants (which look a little bit like children playing when there's nothing to compare them to). Waiting to see what comes next
I need a new... version of me
