Update; started layering in background parts of the city and the sky. Defining the colour scheme, so far going for dawn-ish atmosphere...

Trying out the colours 'just before sunrise'




and contemplating cloud cover positioning and colour;

Moving on to the next part.
I've started drawing cloud cover, laying in some initial shadows and port ('cove') elements.

Feedback appreciated

Nice composition you've got here man I do think the clouds and building sides facing the sun could benefit from some warm hues though, just to integrate them into the atmosphere a little more.

Well done! I really like the dusk feeling and how the atmosphere fades into the starry sky.

Thnx man, i'm in 'adding flying stuff' phase now, and i intend to match the final lighting and colour once all the elements are in.
But, non the less, since this is my first DMP ever, i'm gonna go for it. I like your advice, it makes a lot of sense

here's the result, along with some flying 'gas stations' to go along

After a couple of weeks pondering, redrawing etc. i've decided to bring a different architecture in the play, something to go along better with the plate (wood, metal etc.).
Without much further ado,
here is a more final version;

Adding details, people, lighting, commercials, 'neon signs' etc.
Considering adding a superstructure to be just barely visible trough the clouds (in the upper atmosphere). Advice welcome.

I had some difficulties loading the imgur link but it's working now
You must keep your lighting consistent throughout your image
Maybe try turning that strong direct blow-out back off and remove the lens flare for a moment

After you have re-worked that, experiment with some texture overlays to lose the painterly feel and you should be done

Good luck
