Fantastic. This is working really great…and it’s the most emotional crowd I have seen in the GSO contest entries.Great!
I would like to suggest some things that I think might improve your work:
the smaller spaceships are all coming towards us in the same angle, but if you could shift the closest fighter’s angle to the right instead of left you could give a hint of their greater manoueverability (long word) compared to the mothership
there seem to be two very distinct depthplanes whose gap is only filled by the small fighters…if you could create some more present middleground elements you could fill that void; you already have two buildings on the frame’s lower corners, but you can hardly make out what they are
have you already tried making smaller more intentional lasershots coming out of the fighter? the beam that you have now seems more like something that would come out of a bigger slower ship; or if you don’t want to drop the idea of those long beams, try turning the beam into a motion blur, where it is hot and opaque in the front, and gradually losing its intensity towards the origin, that is, the fighter
there somehow seems to be too much blue in the image; perhaps you could try some different more contrasting colors in the background sky
Great work, and it is going nicely for you…keep ‘em comin’
