I have just one more question:
When you say "digital matte painting that represents the thick cloud layers of
an alien planet carved by whirlpools of wind." I can't stop to think about what kind of terrain the planet is compost.
And as we can see in the concept there's no indication of that.
So my question is:
Should us show some terrain in the matte painting or even an indication of it?
Or basically what the matte painting only shows are the clouds in the sky "space atmosphere"?

It's not indicated in any significant way in the concept, so it's up to you. Keep it subtle, and make sure it looks realistic. It's possible that some internal lighting on the clouds will help the composition, and make some of the cloud shapes 'read' better. It could also give you a lot of problems, so use your own judgment as to whether it's warranted or not.

Should us show some terrain in the matte painting or even an indication of it?
Again, the concept could be read either way, so it's up to you. Don't make a big feature of it if you decide to add it - if we see it at all, it will be very hazy and very subtle.

Hope that helps - answers are a bit nebulous, but the brief is pretty rigid already, and I don't want to lock it down any more.
