Wow, all the worx here are done with exceptional skill and talent, well done guys/girls. Started working on my iamge last week, just had a few probs posting it. Here i wanted to incorperate number of emotions while just getting the base down. All in all i'm challenging everything i've learend up to now @ university (first year).

Did this over the weekend, added some colours by using a tetrahedral complementary colour scheme for the foreground, thats where i want my emphasis to be.

Not satisgied with lighting or the mood so i changed the position of the key light, will introduce a secondary light to compensate for the forground characters later.

Brad :wavey: Wow thanx for the Interest Brad, utilizing colours correctly to empasis emotions is my main aim here, i've done quite alot of research one colour theory and that stuff. Anyway the story will become more clear when i've added the final important object to the composition which is a mushroom the alien in green/yellow will be holding. I still hav to work out some small kinks in the story but it kinda goes like this:
Green alien being slapped by team captain picked a strange mushroom and now the team must face the wrath of the mushroom lord.
So i'll add badges to human captain and a similar thing to signify that their a team by monday. Thanx a bunsh again,:beer: Brad

i'm reevaluating my design and i'm considering to move the viewer to the tension.... my question is if it would really make a diff ?:shrug:

Had a bit of difficulty with getting the balance, emphasis a right. Now i can finally start working on just finishing up. If any of you disagree with my choice of approach to balancing the comp, please don't hesitate. Thanx every1

It's crunch time and their's still a way to go. Iv'e done some work al over. Also removed the monster that had a major fantasy feel to me. Now i'm incorperating more ships and alien suited pilots. The mushroom is still going to be the main cause of the entire event which i'm leaving as the cherry ontop. Thanx for all the advice and support.

i appolegise for the ghosted figure and the messy textures in the image, but this is my final lap of the design. If all goes well i'll have a finished image for the competition.
