    Nice concept, though the thick outline really flattens out the piece, it almost looks looks like a cardboard cut-out from this perspective. I'd also try to avoid a light source thats seems to be on the same horizontal plane as the object, since it tends to limit your ability to describe the shapes on the ship in an interesting way.

    Don't mean to sound harsh, thats just my opinion at least. I think I'd be really interesting to see at another angle with more dynamic lighting.

    Since when is crit kind? Nice an harsh does it good!

    I completely agree with what your sayin. The thick line is actually what i do to make the whole object stand out when im doing a marker render which is ACTAULLY what this peice was going to be. Thought id do a lil bit of digital work though.

    As for the direction of light..hm i dont think my skills are that refined enough yet, i havent been doing this for too long being so young. But i guess i should give it a try on my next peice. What kind of angle are you suggesting? For this peice, what angle would you use?

    For a good angle, I'd just try to stay off the horizontal and vertical planes of the object, anywhere inbetween is better.

    Prometheus has some excellent tutorials on light.
