I figured I would take an different direction in the painting, looking at it now i think the monster should be flipped over. I think having interacting bg elements will make them feel like they are part of the same game..
I took out a lot of the architecture, threw in more natural formations, and a monster to help contrast the other high tech environment.
Bleh, I don't even know if what I am typing makes sense. I just made it "different" while keeping it the "same"
