    I was on my b-day party/vacation, but I surely will do a sketch when I get home (if I don't start crashing yet that is ). If so, I'll edit this post.

    Great entry maths82! I love the feeling of it, the background has this unfinished feeling though. According to the cityscape, it should be nighttime so the sky value should be a bit lower (not entirely black but close enough). That way, your lights can be more dramatic. Right now they look a little washed out? But, I love your ship design, it's really awesome!!! Very awesome feeling to it!

    maths - that is one super creepy space sculpt; I'm afraid it's gonna eat me.

    hamsta - been wondering how crop circles happen...

    AR - I hope to be able to render as well as that someday. (For some reason the ship makes me think of...bowel movements...)

    Nightblue - way cool, I can almost hear a soundtrack.

    Tommoy - reminded me of hours of frustration as a kid . Can the aliens just take the colors off one side, and place them wherever they want?

    Me - I was trying for something simpler after the last failure, but it just kinda looks like an orange harp with a penis. I think the sky came out better than any intentional sky I've tried, and I was just mucking about...

    Wish I could say more interesting things, but I'm new at this.

    Harder than I thought it would be. Ship turned out kind of flat, could have used some more detail. Still trying to learn technique and keep these under 2 hours and get some "real" work done at the same time.

    maths82-nice atmosphere, nice ship.
    Hamsta-like it's ready for some crop circles
    Apocalypse_Rex's-left that part out of the wise men tale, maybe the star in the sky?
    MiniGoth-those dang alien penises
    Nightblue-love your sketch quality
    Tommoy-very nice, great depth, and excellent cube.

    maths82; Love the complex and crazy structure. You've got a nice 3d feel going with the tech clutter fading away in the distance. It looks like an abstract mess, yet you can still see it as an alien vessel. Some of the rendering in the front seems rather vague and washed out, although it's on the foreground and should probably be sharper. Lights in the top left seems a little messy.
    Hamsta; Nice and surreal. Like its lightness, almost as if its transparent. mysterious for sure, with no hint of an engine or boosters at all. I don't think the hedge in the front adds much. It seems a little out of place; all the sand, with a neat line of shrubs.
    Apocalypse_Rex; Love the color scheme. Also like those highlights on the edges in the far right alot, and those square and triangular make for a nice contrast with the organic shapes. Nice design overall. Agreed its a little flat, perhaps you just need to empathize the light source. Seems to come from the top right, but it doesn't really add up. Can't tell from the man at the bottom or the background either. Plus overall, the bottom of the ship seems a lot more saturated than the top.
    MiniGoth; No problem that you're new at this, keep joining and you'll get better for sure, its good practice. You can avoid some of the the cartoony look by toning down on the saturation a little. Those colors are really strong. It will also get better once you're ready to drop the linework. I like the fact that your vessel actually has some tentacle-ish shapes, along with mechanical boosters.
    Nightblue; Like the combination of smooth and straight structures. Keep thinking of a violin or some other instrument somehow. It's a shame there's no background, because its hard to recognize it as a ship without surroundings. Ah well, 40 mins.
    Tommoy; There's a great feel about your piece. The bold shapes in contrast to the smooth curves of those hills and the girl, the way you've angled your vessel, the absence of a front or backside, all add to the dramatic effect. What's going to happen here? Like the texture alot, and it looks like its actually following the perspective (how, btw?). The lights are the only thing I'm not sure about. There seems to be no interaction between them and the vessel. The shape of each light radius seems perfectly circular also.
    erniesthings; Pretty crazy. No front or backside, no hints of anything you'd recognise.. just floating shapes. Pretty mysterious. Like those odd, muted colors as well, it somehow matches. Light source seems a little inconsistent. The pyramids on the side, for example, cast their shadow to the right, although their bottom has the darkest shadow.
    Loakers; Many interesting things going on all over your piece. You don't seem low on inspiration. Looks like its more of a standing/walking structure rather than a ship though. I think something went wrong with your scan in the bottom left .

    Hope its of any use, just some thoughts!

    1.5hr, ps mouse. Did something horribly wrong with the red side of my thing.
