    invasion

    I've been working on this off and on today. Not sure if I like it or not. What does everybody else think?

    Very cool concept. Maybe make swarms of them coming out of one of the cone ships or more.

    Peace, Love and Harmony... I could never get them all into bed at the same time!

    I like the designs on the flyingcreature/bot things, maybe there should be a lot more of them i agree. The cone ships in the bg goes a bit to straight up, but the design is cool.
    Keep working

    The shading is nice, except on the cone ships (I understand it's not finished but for the moment I think they need to stick out more)

    I added some more pods, and did a small amount on the large ship in the foreground.

    Looking much better now! More pods, more pods - hehe
    Small crit(sorry) - the pods closest to the ships are very big, making the ships look small. Maybe its just some biig pods?
    It would be cool to see 100s of lttle different lights on the ships. Nice smoke btw

    I was thinking about making clouds of the pods just flowing out, but I think the size thing is an issue. I think I'll tweak it some more. Thanks Fellah.

    Sounds like a good idea with the clouds - looking forward to seeing it I like the pod in forground - i can clearly recognize your style.

    Nice, the updated one looks tons better with the additional pods and smokes.
    The pods from the cloest ship are too blury, maybe use pen/pencil tool to give them more defined edge would help. Also, more contrast on the closest pods may help to bring depth out.

    Oh yeah, this is turning out nice!
    Nice touch with the new pod in fg too - makes you slide into the picture!
    Hehe sorry for bugging you man. but maybe some highlights on the pods(on the legs and such) in the bg would make them pop out more from the landscape.
    Hope you are not sick of me now, lol. .

    I think the composition would flow better if they pods were more fluid. Maybe have some of their legs more straight and makes waves with their bodies. That would help it to guide your eye alot more smoothly.

    The Amount your piece changed just by adding that extra space to it so you could show the rest of that pod is amazing, Look what good composition can do

    Its coming in the right direction looking at where you are now, to where you started. But i do agree that the pods should be fluid. it would make it seem more uniform and thus more machine-like.

    Hehe sorry dude.
    The picture is really taking form as i see it now. The small pods coming out of the ships is very well done!
    I might agree about the pods being more fluid, but i still like the shape they are making now. The randomness is kinda cool. Maybe make some them go out of the picture (hope that made sence). The dropping ship are placed nicely, but look a bit like normal missils compared to the rest - and perhaps a bit to light -the others are very dark.
    I love being a nerd, forgive me dude!
    Btw its one lyssværd, two lyssværd

    haha... Thanks Fellah
    Funny, I just started this piece as something quick to do in-between jobs, now it's turning into a big project. Thanks for all the good crits everybody!

    Cool. I like the small alien ships, they kind of have a spider look to them, The big ships that are coming out of the ground look kind of like the sand worms from the film Dune.

    Hey! What's up Brian. I actually got the idea for the ships sticking out of the ground from a nature show I was watching. It was one of those close-up time lapse films of plants growing. They made me think of big alien structures, and after a few days of it bouncing around in my head I came up with this.
