BTW, this is the first original render that I made, but forgot to upload it, sorry for the delay! I noticed the last man has some strange glow in his helmet!

hey happy new year dude

I wanted to comment more on this picture earlier , but somehow forgot, so
here goes :

Being way simpler than some billion-poly entries here your scene is still so
fun to look at , they way you've set up all the humans and aliens is great!

also I like it how even with all the aliens around ,tearing apart his shipmates,
the last man still has a chance to survive. He holds a gun and there's the
open hatch to jump in

Wanted to come in and say nice job.well done Tuomas.......A pretty wild scene,nice battle.Quite a bit of effort for this,and it's turning out's nice to see people get to or near the finish line,thats a very important factor,and I think perhaps only 10% or so of all entries get there.Keep at it,looking good.

Thanks Virtuoso for your comments! I wish I had interacted more with the community so I would have gotten more comments. But I guess it is never too late! Thanks for everyone for their comments so far, they are still welcomed! This certainly has been a great challenge so far and I have learned a great deal. My scene doesn't have millions of polys but I have to say that I am still very happy about the outcome. I guess the most detailed object is the crew. I think I achieved exactly the result I aimed for, through hard work though.

Yes, there certainly where drawbacks during this project:( One time the crew object got corrupted and I lost 3 hours work. I've noticed that sometimes surface baking can create problems. Also, during the posing of the creatures something happened. I had posed all the creatures, closed the scene, opened it again and all the bones were mixed together! But that was because of a "minor" mistake I made during the cloning. But this led to better scene in which the poses were better and I also created low poly creatures for the background to keep the count low.

Hey - nice final, congrats!

The colors and style makes it look a bit like a baroque painting, very nice

Thanks for comments again, they are still very welcome! I am now realizing that somethings should have been changed, but I guess I won't do changes as I have already stated that this is the final. I would have liked to remove the hatch as someone commented, that would have given more desperate feeling. Also, now I'd fix a bit the last mans pose too. I've learned so much again! Thanks!

Best regards,

Possible changes?

I am now considering whether I'll be doing minor changes as I have more time than I first estimated. I will then post a new final image. Those changes would be:

- removal of the hatch (to give more desperate feeling)
- Change the pose of the main character (it's good thing I have all the post effects in layers
- perhaps trying more different colour variations.

What are your feelings about these changes? Comments are valued!!!

Lets see if I do these changes...

Post Effects and Compositing: one step back...

I couldn't resist because I still have time... Here is another variation, a bit more darker and tweaked. I added also some noise but probably not visible in this web optimized image. Is this better than the previous? Comments?

the other was way better in my opinion.

also, i'd leave the hatch where it is. Even
with the gun the dude has just a slim chance
of getting in before losing at least an arm or
