Hello monsieur !

The first idea I have when I see your sketch is, for me, to change the focus-perspective...nearer from the ground, with the eyes up to the sky, to see more stars and maybe ships, and give less importance to this big laser...BTW you could have, with this new perspective, a more epic scene..just a suggest, of course ! With the actual point of view your focus is on the laser and the theme is..super-weapons...not space opera..
Keep up you seem have skills man.:)

Hey monsieur Goli, it's an honor to have advices from you :)
I totally agree about the focus-perspective. I'm actually working on it.
I'd like to give a more interesting point of view without losing the focus on the laser.

Thanks !

Bonne chance a toi.
