Olve; yeah you get it - I love those old propaganda posters...this will have a simliar feel, but not as graphic. I'll post my next milestone update shortly - probably tonight or tommorrow.

bakbek; thanks.. that's also what I had in mind...sort of more like an old painted sci-fi movie poster before they started using photos for everything and making everything look boring and the same.

Slav; thanks, I think I know what mean, but these are just rough shapes and colors, everyhting will pretty much change. I do like to use color though, and I'm not afraid to be bold with it.

Wow, very cool. I like the feel of that huge ship rolling in from the left. Has a massive battle feel to it. Excellent work.

man, I love this, lots of energy/motion. Can't wait to see more,

I should write something funny or poignant. ... ... ... I got nuthin'.

Line Art: line art milestone

I don't really do traditonal lineart, but this represents the next step in my process. The basics are about 80% there. With so much time left I'll probably take my time and really make sure I'm happy with everything before I start detailing.

Bravo! I gotta say it looks equally good either way.
That fallen dude still firing is good stuff , I though about
putting something like that in my pic too
(well one of the concepts anyways,heh)

Very nice layout and detailing, looks like a really grand piece .
Personally, I think the original looks better than the flipped one, but its just me- not any difference, obviously.

great start. I am sure this will be fantastic. Your work has always impressed me.
I am glad I get to watch your progress.

Good Luck

Fantastic line art

If I can suggest one thing: I think the "camera" is too close to the main heroes, more space/battle/environment willl add some "grand space opera" dimension

Nice work

very nice work dude!
But i still prefer your first sketch : the scales and the colors were more subtils (like classicals or "renaissance" paintings colors sets).
I think you have added too much contrast too (the foreground and the background are too similars).
But it is a great picture indeed!
Good luck for the contest!

fantastic work... beautiful technique... Love the layout... but...

My only crit is that the image could maybe be 'taller'... the figures look a bit too central. There was more space above the figures in earlier sketches. I like the feeling of claustrophobia that the ship gives, but you could still get that with more space in the top of the composition..?

i love it though!!

(edited because i pressed 'post' by accident!!)

Thanks guys, there is still lots bugging me, and I think you pretty much nailed most of it.

cheers guys.

the central figure is just as epic as it gets, it's truly dynamic!!! ,but the composition is something that is tooo classic(not necessarily bad, but really reminds me the general layout of starwars posters)
