Another challenge submission. Trying to work on composition, at which I currently suck. Feedback welcomed with open arms.

Edit: I have worked on the aa some, and cleaned up some of the 45 degree slopes. Previous image:

Thanks all for the comments!

I agree completely about the aa, I put way too much on in fear of choppy lines. And as for the composition thanks for the feedback in that respect, I am unhappy with the invisible triceratops and such, and hopefully will fix what I can when I get back home (this month all I've had to work with is MS Paint on library computers).

I wasn't going to check this out because of the preview, but yikes, it looks great! Misleading preview is misleading.

messy composition for a messy subject.  works well I think :]

I agree, this is really awesome.  Like Mandrill, I question the AA.  Not because it looks bad, but because it kind of has that auto AA look?  This tels me the AA is overdone and with too many colors to smooth out.  You probably only need to use one or two colors for AA in this work.  I don't think the mountains need AA at all.  You're making it look blurry

Woha, this excellent.

Not only that picked one of my favourite subjects, dinosaurs, you also managed to work out a great palette with striking contrast.

Two things could be improved though. AA (which is pretty good actually, it just needs longer lines on the blacks. ) and, as mentioned by yourself, composition.

The composition is a bit messy. Your eyecatcher  and main part of the design (T-rex) is, except from the asteroid above it, not really supported by anything else. Additionally most of the things on the left side are easily overseen.

An absolutely awesome piece, nonetheless! Got my vote. :)

Brilliant! Love the palette, and great meteors/smoke.
