This looks like the start or end of an amazing adventure. Combining elements such hovercrafts, monumental statues, and a bright light at the end bring thoughts of a hero returning home, or the hero perhaps traveling to some place greater than himself / herself. The colors blend together beautifully and the lighting is very realistic. The shadows on the left and right really make the viewer focus on what is on the middle, which is a good thing. The drawing itself doesn't have a lot going on, which really makes it all work. I look forward to see more from you well done sir.
What do you think?

WOW, that is a very good drawing. However the boat seems to be out of place, it contrasts (Which is good) but it seems to be... Different. But I still love the artwork. 10/10 Bravo!
