    Saboteurs - critique for completion

    Hi everyone.
    I've been working on this piece for the last few days and now I got to the point where I think it's finished. However, that is usually the time when there are still things that can be worked on, so, I would like to ask your help to tell me what you think could be improved in this piece. Thanks.

    Well, I might ask what's with the poses of the characters? Their legs are really far apart as if they're stretching and in general they look like they're either going to have a kung-fu fight or get their Saturday night fever on (that's what the right side figure reminds me of, it's nearly the exact Travolta pose).
    If these two are the titular saboteurs, I'd have them possibly running towards the place or having them sneaking around (like, the other figure behind the round thing while other makes a run for the tower) or something like that.

    yeah, they do look like they are about to fight and that's what I thought they are going to do. That really has nothing to do with the title so change that according to previous comment. Maybe add something in very close foreground would add more depth? Love the colors and distance portrayed in this piece as well as light. I think it would be interesting to see ray of light actually be visible and shining on the figures.

    Hey this is really cool. The atmosphere is fantastic. The figures look cartoony. It looks like a legitimate style but just FYI. Kinda reminds me of 9.

    No need to repost the original image. We remember what we saw a bit higher up in the thread.

    Loving the composition and execution so far! The new poses are a huge improvement! Maybe they're just a sketch so far, but with so much detail given to the surroundings I'd like to see them a tiny bit more fleshed out and realistic!

    - Current project <- Crit away!
    - The Whyatt Sketchbook Any tips appreciated
