I ended up changing the design, palette, and even style completely and starting over from scratch many times, so I wasn't sure if I'd even finish. This is inspired by a large number of floating cities/fortresses from various sources, not just any one source.

I plan on making more and better drawings of this in the future, since this is a location I'd like to use further.

 The city itself reminds me immensly of something I'd see when editing in audacity

This is a nice piece of work, would go great in a game's cutscene

Pretty.  Reminds me of the reflection of trees on a lake at sunset in Alaska.

Beautiful. I love how the clouds form around the city. Good job. :)
