I'll just echo everyone else's comments on the perspective and palette. Really strong work.

You need to make an art book with a few step by steps.

Well, I'm recording some videos of my process for that.
My step by steps would be messy, I don't have a strong structured way of doing things, I just sorta do whatever I feel like next. I can be detailing 1 thing then switching back to adding fog somewhere then detailing another part of the image, a step by step won't work, I fear :P

What an amazing atmospheric piece! I like the painterly quality of this. To have a fortress in a giant stalactite is an interesting concept.

Nice. Now Can you make something for me?? Could you try to make this scene:

"She opened Her hands once more, as She had done the two previous months. The rays [of light] appeared to penetrate the earth, and we saw, as it were, a vast sea of fire. Plunged in this fire, we saw the demons and the souls [of the damned]. The latter were like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, having human forms. They were floating about in that conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames which issued from within themselves, together with great clouds of smoke. Now they fell back on every side like sparks in huge fires, without weight or equilibrium, amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fright (it must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me). The demons were distinguished [from the souls of the damned] by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals. That vision only lasted for a moment, thanks to our good Heavenly Mother, Who at the first apparition had promised to take us to Heaven. Without that, I think that we would have died of terror and fear." - Sister Lucy of Fatima

Sorry, is this from an actual religious text? I can't do that.

Well, I was being serious. I looked it up and apparently it's a quote from somewhere.
The problem with something like that is, imagine somebody asks to do a picture of Jesus and I do it, but then a lot of religious people will find a thing wrong with it (maybe his eyes will look too evil for their taste) and start a riot.
So, I'm not diving that.

Ahhhhh the perspective! The colors! This is beautiful! I love the colors you chose, very complimentary 
and the demon, as always, is perfect!
And my my must I say, the perspective really is interesting, adds a whole lot of depth to it, really draws you in
good job c:
