    not sure if I will have enough time next week but here a quick sketch, started as a rough thumbnail but I ended up getting lost in the details, again

    since there are a lot of "classic" alien invasion compositions like the one from Independence Day that has been mentioned I'm somehow excited to see some unconventional approaches

    also, like your thumbs Zinph
    as Dayle said, clear and sharp

    Edit: update, some fixes of the value range, some more details for the street and some more bi-pods to balance the comp a bit better
    the dog puppy went for a little walk around the block, I guess he'll be back later :>

    I'm liking everyones sketches so far, can't wait to see how they turn out!

    Here's where I'm at now. Going to have to liven up the composition somehow, guess I'll figure that out as I go. Need to fix the perspective too.

    Glad its two weeks, I might actually have a chance of finishing for once

    jadger- that's super cool looking, I love it.
    tamirespp- this is a good start, the colors are looking good and harmonious and I like the composition. I would check the perspective on the two buildings(?) in the front- they aren't reading well and I can't really tell what they are. Also, the shape of the flying ships is really vague, which might just be because its not done yet, but make sure to give them defined shape and form. Finally, the front ship kind of looks like its shooting at the mothership, not sure if that's what you intended. good luck and looking forward to seeing the finished painting!

    tamirespp - Hope you don't mind but I've just overlaid some construction lines on your latest wip to show a couple of issues with the perspective, nearly right but a few off. I think because of the extreme perspective (which is ace btw) it is important to get right as it's framing the whole composition. I am assuming everything is vertical?

    Thank you so much, Dayle!
    I was really having a hard time working out this perspective. I had some idea on the thumbnail phase but I couldn't know how to work it out. Thanks again!! And another thing, sometimes I feel my images a little blurry. I paint all the way zoomed out and then try to work on the details... I kinda want something painterly but readable, you know, but it's tough!

    Here's my initial sketch, hopefully I'll actually finish one of theses challenges for a change. Going with a back ally scene in the city with lights above searching for humans.
