    A few little things are holding this back:
    The perspective on all three ships seems slightly off relative to the direction of their exhaust trails.
    The way the wing pod of the top ships lines up with the structure behind it visually "locks" it into the background and stops its action.
    Same thing with the middle ship's relation to the vertical structure directly underneath it.
    The atmospheric perspective could use some work, both in its color and depth of field (the middle ground seems looser than both the foreground and the background.)

    Take everything I've said with a grain of salt, though, because it took me until just now to realize that it's Legos!

    I second everything Elwell said but have to add that this is really refreshing my day somehow.
    Cheers,

    Elwell is absolutely right, but the concept of using lego in your drawing really appeals to me.

    Elwell, you are so right...and it seems so obvious to me now. Thanks for helping to put it in perspective for me.

    Chupacabra, good to know that despite illustrative problems, the piece was still able to extract some kind of emotion from the viewer.

    Kyronimus, I agree, I think the LEGO theme is totally appealing to anyone who grew up playing with them. Hard to have bad memories from LEGO's unless you swallowed them or had to have one removed from somewhere...

    Thanks for the crits and comments people
