They were closer than they though.Theu came from deep inside Earth, fire and lava, with one single desire: Conquest! People tried to sign peace so they sent a queen, Isla, to their gates...but they don't want peace...

Hey dude good job on gittin 'er dunn!
A few comments:
-camera motion is strange in some areas....specifically the scene where the queen is riding on top of the alien. I think it's because you've linked the camera's target to the body of the alien, so the camera bobs up and down with the action
-the background image in some shots didn't seem to match up with the environment. There's one shot where the camera spins around the alien and the foreground spins around fine, but the background image hardly move...as if it's floating in space and attached to the camera
-the animation needs a lot of work...for most of the characters it looks like you've blocked in the overall motion (arm swining, head bobbing, etc)...but it's not very smooth, and the rest of their bodies lack motion
-the monochromatic color scheme weakens the piece in my opinion...I think even doing something as simple as giving it a dual-color scheme (complementary colors, like the current orange tones with added blues) would help it
I realize the deadline is here so you'll probably have a hard time implementing those changes, but hopefully these tips help you in future projects

Ya man, I now you are right with some suggests but, unfortunately I don't have time ...even though a dadline extented. Thank's for your feedback! :)
