Here's an illustration I'm working on. The left image represents the final cropped dimensions I'm planning on, right is full working view and character detail. Rendering on the characters is approaching finished; I haven't started in on the monster yet other than the tentacle in the foreground. At this stage I think things are still a little dark and I'm not completely happy with how the girl is turning out; however I 'd welcome feedback on how to improve any/all aspects of the image.
[Edit: Progress pics.]
