Well I had a go!
Have posted my workings...
Tried to consider very much at the beginning how these huge "Holes", in the clouds were going to be created by the wind and how they would effect the surrounding cloud- as well as the direction and rotation itself. I wanted a serenity to it but with an underlying aggression of a "storm", amongst it which helps create this phenomena...all that said in done, to be really honest I just wanted to make a decent picture.
Opted to move away from the original concept in terms of the nearest clouds lighting, but it just wasn't working properly so i went the direction I did thinking it would make a better image. The planet I was enjoying rendering but then I remembered the suns position and the 'halo-esque-ness'-rimlight of the concept so had to not be precious and kick that back! Then came some relighting in general, colour correction and a more painting to consolidate it all together.
