This was my first CG. I entered into a contest over at http://www.polykarbon.com. What do you guys think?

Fun image, Clank! Try getting rid of the black lines around the clouds and see how that looks...

A great improvement, Clank. I'm thinking that you need to get a lightsource in there somwhere. And just like Kazu suggested, kill the outline on those clouds. Getting rid of the outline will make the clouds look less like rocks and more like clouds. :)

Yeah, Dan, about that light source... Heh. I had one at the beginning then as I shaded the guy I just forgot about it. I was pretty careless. Oh well. I'll improve next time.

Heh, thanks for more comments, you guys. It did badly in the contest I entered it into on Polykarbon. I thought it would do okay... Oh well, maybe next time. Thanks again, you guys. I'll remember about to make the clouds have no lines next time, Kazu and Randerzoid.
