Nice! What kinda tower is it? What is it made from?

And if it is reaching into the clouds, it can perhaps be a bit taller even!

I was going for somewhat a rock/mountain type tower. I want to add more details to make it more structure like so more of a tower. But I want it to be like a structure built into a mountain side. I spiral trail going up and around the outside.

What are the dark spots? Caves?
The person at the bottom is a good idea, it gives a sense of scale.

Yea they are supposed to be caves. I think the grey caves look a little awkward with change in coloring, but the effect I was going for was manmade structures built into a mountain side. It was supposed to be a mountainside tower structure I guess.

I am not sure if my progressions are better or worse in terms of shading. I tried to add some more depth with the vertical-ish lines down the mountain side and reshaded along the lines that there is depth to the "cracks" coming down the mountain side.
