add more spaces in the bottom area. not very happy so far since the space is somewhat limited.

change the composition, I like it better than my previous one, add a little more definition, trying to set the mood for the piece

still working on lots of ideas, in terms of composition/lighting/elements.

Hopefully I can get a lot more done during the Christmas vacation

reworked on the ship/robot shape a little bit. Added some terrain variation

tighten the ship a little bit more, adding more elements that unify the theme. Worked on background and colors.

Vivid colours, but it's kind of hard to work out what's going on with such small images?

making more changes again, not a good idea since there is only 5 days left...
by looking at other people's work, I think my main character lacks a sense of motion because it has no arms/legs. I am trying to add them and hopefully it can be done soon.

The good news is I got a few extra days to improve everything.
tighten up details. still want to change a lot of elements in this piece

well, this is the end,
I kind of stuck in the background story of my piece pretty late during competition. However I was thinking about it too loosely and it slowed down things quite a few. I have some other ideas on sketch book but I was not able to paint them in...I think there are a lot of things I can improve..
I am still not happy with the lighting and colors.
I've learned new things by looking at other people's entry, and I have to read through them once again later at some point.
This is my first time seriously doing a competition like this, I really enjoy the process and I hope to do more in the future.
