    I really like it. I have a similar idea in mind I was thinking it needed a point of interest or story, perhaps gather a few more workers around one of the eggs and have one signaling to the others like there's something interesting happening of about to happen.

    Thanks. I was thinking the same thing. I am going to have the second egg hatch and have a creature coming out of it. I might have them all panicking.

    Thumbs up

    Hey this is looking very cool. The colour and lighting is very nice, has quite a retro feel to it. The egg pods are looking interesting - do you have any thoughts on what may be going on inside. It could be that you are leaving it up to the viewer to decide. If thats the case I am wondering why the little guy in the space suit is shooting at the egg what does see that makes him act in this aggressive way? These are just initial thoughts which spring to mind and which do not necessarily have answers. The little guys by the way look quite friendly to me, cute even - what's their story - are they explorers/exterminators etc? Anyway looking good so far, the only other thing which jumps out at me is that everything is looking pretty smooth - it would be nice to see more variety in terms of texture. Looking forward to see where this goes.
    Mind made worlds.

    Thanks. Everything you have observed so far are things that I am working on now. I have been asked about the men in suits quite a bit, but I was hoping to leave some of this piece to the imagination of the viewer. I ran into a situation with the man firing the gun... he is actually suppose to holding a flame thrower, but I can't figure out how to make that read without making it look like he is firing. I am in the process of completing the surrounding areas before having the main egg begin to hatch out some THING. I am going to leave the look of the creature to the imagination of the viewer. I always loved it when friends would explain a movie, it would make it sound so much more interesting and my imagination would make it even greater. So I am going for a very clear illustration with room for imagination. THANKS AGAIN!

    I think I liked the rounder helmets more, and the egg pod light in the last one. But that's just me. :op

    I like the idea though, very cool ^_^

    I liked them round too, but I have had a couple of critiques that mention the suites they wore being too childish looking. I don't like the way they look now, so I think I might change them back. As for it being lighter, I am 50/50 on that... it looks way too bright and lacks a little mood.. the dark is doesn't fit in well right now, but it's something I think it needs. thanks by the way.

    ^_^ much better ^_^. Pod light is lighter than it was to start with, but still has those bright spots that got lost on the last one ^_^
