Yeah, the female composition is just great! I love the angel and the perspective is believable. Look forward to more updates!

All nice concepts,really hard to say which one fits the best,quit subjective.
Hard to do some crits also as the sketches are great and this still the start.
Anyway great,keep um coming and good luck!!!

I prefer your balloon concept to the poster idea. If it were me, I'd have a lot more blue etc for sky - would really add a sense of space. Or at least a lot more variation in colour (eg contrasting etc). Anyway, keep it up.

Hi Teemur,
Even if the idea of poster is interesting, it can be hard to read in a 1000X800 size pict. I prefer the scene with the baloon to the one with the girl : there's already so many space battles... I can't wait to see it detailed

I really like the balloon idea, but it gets a bit crowded and hard to read crammed into the movie poster. I'd vote to let one good idea breathe over trying to do too much with too little space. But either way, good luck with it!

I realy like the baloon composition without the poster stuff. It took me a while to realize you used the same image, I love the baloon image but its like the 4th or 5th read on the poster.

amazing image!

I agree about the movie poster

Hi, just wanted to say that I agree about liking the balloon idea without the movie poster better than the girl. Very film noir, also reminds me of the old movie "Metropolis" quite a bit. Very stylish. The Micheal Jackson look alike was glorious though! Great bit of humor there!

Wow! Don't know if it was intentional, but I see a heavy Wizard of Oz influence in the balloon pic.

First, the Wizard left the land of Oz in a balloon.
Second, I can hear Judy Garland as the woman with her arm raised saying, "O! That plane doesn't see that giant spaceship in its way. It will crash for sure!"
Meanwhile, Michael Jackson (who starred in "The Wiz" btw) cackles with glee as he waits for the inevitable explosion, seen through his crystal ball.

Sorry, I know that's not very helpful but I think it's a great story you've got going.

Coloring WIP: Balloon Color 2

I've had a little break and I'm hoping that I could see clearer what I want to do for this contest.
I'm still quite interested about the balloon concept because it's more original and maybe I'm going to try out the poster composition with the balloon pic later on, when I've developed it a little bit farer.
I changed the compositon of the balloon pic a little bit.. I think it works better now.
