This is beautiful. I love all your work, but once I have enough money I might just buy this one. It really calls out to the adventurer in me :D 

Question: Do you do commission? I'm writing a fantasy book at the moment and am looking for someone to do cover art. If not, do you have any recommendations for any artists that do?

I agree, it kinda ruins it. You don't get many trees in tundra either! However, maybe a focal point was needed.

The brooding clouds, the large shadows and the landscape has such a broody yet realistic expression. Nice!

Very nice, but I can't help feeling there's a lighting incoherence on the left (trunc and rocks). And the touch of red is a bit unexpected.
Not criticizing, cause this is totally out of my league, just observing.

This is truly splendid. I get a real feeling of Sehnsucht (longing) from this picture...I have always felt much more at home in this sort of climate than I do on sunny days; the green and the clouds and the rocks, all this feels as if it is breathing, alive...

i like the lighting. at first glance the clouds and the darkness make it seem rather forbidding, but the light peeking though the clouds makes it seem as if the storm has just passed

I think it would have been prettier if you drew the whole tree yourself instead of merging your way to the top. It looks half done. The rest of the painting is also way too "painterly" for the realistic sky in my opinion. Other than that, great drawing :) I adore the touch of red.
