Congratulations on your honourable mention, Simon. Well done.
Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all of the things?

First congratulations !
It's really an impressive Textured painting I admire how you put the textures on the stones very lovely !

My critics:
The Front is painted very lovely and detailed as i said, but the background looks unfinished, it misses atmosphere.
The maze gets to flat. Maybe you can work a bit on this. I doesnt't have to be more detailed...

The sky/clouds are very very boring. Far too less..
Use cloud-textures or maybe just work a bit more on the clouds details, make it a bit more dramatic, it will be very rewarding !

Look at some matte paintings of great artists here how they solved depth problems ( maybe by using haze, fog, light, blur and other atmospheric effects...)
Maybe it misses a atmospherical light that appears also in the front.
You could try: Fog is coming out of the maze (bg) --> makes it a bit more mysteriouse and gives a sense of temperature.

Work slightly more on the rock on the right it lives too much from the textures.

good luck great work so far !!

greets Felix

Yep, one thing I forgot: you can try adding a bit of noise(grain) to the sky ( flat areas to ad realism )

Good luck buddy =)
