It makes me think of the past and present combined. Aside from the fairy lights, the whole closeness of the buildings together remind me of the various markets in Cairo, and the design on the right feels distinctly modern. To me it's like a representation of how the past and present of Egypt are still intertwined. That's how I see it anyway... Not sure if that's what was intended so sorry if it's really off. Fantastic though!

Your gallery is amazing!

I love how warm the colors are, but it looks very round and curvy... perhaps you could try to use thinner, longer lines that give it a harsher appearance to show how bid the perspective is?
Also be careful with every detail. Details make the masterpieces, and it's nice when the eye wonders around analysing all the tiny particular details!:)

Thanks for the comments! Yeah, this piece is a few years old, I would definitely approach it in a different way now.

Well if you wanted that maybe you could make them arcane strings holding up glowing hieroglyphs? :)

I like the lighting - the style also reminds me of neo-modern but in Egyptian style. My only kinda balh (though its realistic) is the clothslines hanging from the buildings.

LOL, they were actually meant to be tattered banners or that sorta thing, or pulley systems that would allow people to communicate with each other across the chasm... but yeah, everyone says they look like clotheslines!

The top circle of the bridge needs to be lightened a touch on the left side - saying this only because the left side and the top of the inside of the circle are the same depth

Thanks for the comment! I'm actually planning on fixing up that whole area... just need to find some time...

very organic! Really looks like the habitation of a cliff. The apparently smooth circle at the middle is really surreal, like a natural skylight over the canyon.

Thanks! I actually have to adjust that a bit... my instructor says that one's eye naturally gravitates to simple shapes, like that circle/oval. While it is part of the composition, I think the statue to the left is more important. Basically, I will have to diminish that area in some way.
