Hey, I really like the people in the foreground on this last pass- they look like they are just now cutting and running, like it wasn't real to them until the attacking ship got that close. Fantastic work!

I really like the way you painted frightened crowd : that's brilliant. (i like the rest of the pict too)
Maybe it would add more depth if you light the big ship a little, suggesting an atmosphere between it and little ships flying away from it.
Good scene, very lively !

Looking good! Very John Berkey!

I think you should boost the color a bit. Try adding some orange/red to the explosions to give them some more power. I would also advice you to think about the way the image is composed - i think the background is superb with a very nice perspective and all, but the at the great window there's a very distinct gap between forground and background. I would try bridging that gap with either something sticking out into the space, or by painting something like a ship crashing through the glass. You get the point.

Looking forward to seeing the final thing!!

Thanks gang for the nice words. It still needs work, though I think it's starting to get there.

Hi!!!Althought I really find that windowlicker got great point there this looks great man!!!
I just find the scene a little bit too cropped and missing some air.Maybe put the camera a little bit higher and have some kind of balcony on the foreground with some people closer to us as those first ones.
Maybe the horizon(or skyline?,don't know,sorry 4 my english :-) )
could be a little bit more rounded,with the buildings a little bit more inclined.
Anyway I suscribe,great drawings and great concept!!!

Thumbs up

Way to go man...

I think everybody has good points, but thats also very subjective. technicwise isn't alot to crit, because it's still an early stage. Balance is good, dramatic... classic with your personal touch.
I would say when you happy with your piece,... GO WITH IT!!!

Summary: ME LIKE!
