Hi Ivan,
Nice work on this so far, the sketch looks promising.
As for improvig, this has a very limited colour and tonal range at teh moment. Try looking at some photographs and seeing if you can use some good reference to get different highlight and shadow tones, as well as the colour variation in atmospheric perspective.
Your main focus (i.e. the top of the city) is drawing the eye out of the top of the painting a little, so it would be worth dropping this and maybe bringing it very slightly towards centre.
The spacecraft isn't really adding anything, and wouldn't usually be part of a matte painting anyway, so I would remove that unless you have a specific reason for it to be there.

Hope it helps, look forward to seeing more!

Nick

Hamza - I didn't paint this one, check the username on the first post - I just offered some advice on it...
However if you have some work that you would like people to offer their suggestions on, feel free to create a thread in the WIP section and i'm sure you will get some good feedback.

Thanks Nick, i can see clearly what you mean. I also have a thing for sampling the value/color from the image i'm working on which mutes and washes out the tones after a while, as i stop introducing any new darks and lights into it. I'll do some new ones and keep my eye out for what you said.

you can always use level/curves adjustments on top of your painting to fix the values :)
