Based on the sky city described in Robert E. Vardeman and Victor Milan's great fantasy series, 'The war of the powers'. The sky city is built on a huge slab of magically levitating rock. I may extend the city to the right so it pokes up out of the clouds to the right hand side.

Looking at the bottom darker part of the city, I think there is something more to this piece....

:) very true - if you read the novels that inspired me - the sky city was built by an ancient race of sorta lizard people but then later colonised by the 'sky people' where were human. So the idea was to show a kinda mismatch of architecture!

Oh yeah hehehe a classic to be sure... inspired a whole generation of fantasy art. People really weren't painting that kind of thing before him (if I'm not mistaken) thank you :)

Excellent work here.  The combination of small details with the sweeping vista serves to create a really powerful impact - this feels like a real world, to some degree.

Hey thanks! I guess it looks realistic because 90% of the painting is actually real life - as in this is what I saw on my bike ride - there was this crazy cloud that was hitting the mountain line and the impact made it explode upwards. I was maybe 3000 metres high and the edges were super crisp. So I kept stopping and taking photos of it - and when I got home I decided to do an environment study but add some extra stuff.
