I like the color. And the way the face seems to melt into the sun. Like the way you did the stars. And thier another figure comming from the sun. Perhaps the figure face is changing into somthing else. This is a good work. Many things going on.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

I love the colors and the vitality of this picture. I do think,
however, that there may be a bit too much going on
towards the bottom. The top of the picture works well with
the big star, the rings and the smaller stars. Colors are nice.
Then you get to King Tut, the wormhole with the eyeball
and the deaths' head with a tail, all about the same size and
placed side by side. Too much competition.
If you want to keep all three I would blend the skeleton head
in with Tuts' face and forget the tail. Then maybe make the
wormhole with eyeball a little smaller.
If you're willing to sacrifice one of those objects, I would
loose the wormhole and just keep Tut with the skeleton.
Good idea and good start. E

Thanks for the tips guys. I did this without thinking about composition and balance, was thinkin it was too bottom heavy as well. I appreciate the help.
