After a lot of looking at it, I decided that, it really did need more detail on it.

Woah...the one at the top of this page and the one at the bottom of the last page are awesome...I’ve always loved how wide you go. Great feeling of height there and detail. Also really like the tube / metro train one...great colours there and story.

Had issues with the fact that the whole thing seemed to be a similar colour, though saying that, with this there seems to be sort of a rusty goldy yellow in the nebula that matches the ships too, but, I think there’s much better separation of colours here now, quite happy with it. http://i207.photob...

The only place where I feel a lack of detail is right around the pipe for the engines - all the other blank places feel natural to me. Definitely agree with you on that, will have to add a bit round there...thanks for mentioning...I've definitely looked at it for too long now and need fresh perspec...

Still battling away with it. I couldn't resist moving onto the nebula, but still feel the ship might need more detail added...

More detail, but just wondering where to put more lights, or if the positioning of these lights is ok.

Finally did another scene. It’s really just more experimentation with colours. The idea here is we’re onboard a space ship, they’re about to go to red alert as attack is imminent. http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb247/MikeDowswell/corridor01.jpg This ones another go at me seeing if i like 2.35:1 ...

I never said anything but I think this is really, really great…I’ve always felt that some caricature stuff can be freaky, and maybe too freaky, but this has a very nice balance to it...is a really nice one...the eyes are great!

Awww, well thanks guys!...I’m just really, really glad that somebody is coming back to watch what I’ve done...that there is some sort of audience there who likes to peak in every now and again to see what’s going on. It’s completing these projects that’s the tricky part, and being happy with the sto...

I’ve got a wee site going for shorts that I love, although two of them here are actually live action shorts, three of them however are animations...there’s only five films in total on it so far.

Thanks fourchinnigan, yeah I love wide angle lenses. Here’s some more experimentation, the set is starting to look better. It never quite comes out how you thought it would though. http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb247/MikeDowswell/pods6.jpg http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb247/MikeDowswell/p...
