creating illustrations in photoshop

im pretty new to PS, in case, you havent guessed, and ive been experimenting with turning in some simple images into illustrations. mostly with the cutout artistic filter..

how do you like my moon in a purple sky? i think its pretty cool, but then im rather a sucker for those artistic filters..

I also had some success altering a tree in this shot.

if anyone wants to share some tips on this process or a critique of my images, id love to hear, though be gentle with me!
