Reviews for "Aftermath"

Nice

I like it

Occluded responds:

Nice response. I like it.

good..

not great. The left is very well done, but I am not so sure about the space craft. the shapes the colors and the set up seem less thought through.

I also dont really know whats happening. the dude in the front is checking something out, oke but the other is pulling a teammate out of the ground? I just dont 'get' the picture, but that can be insightful failure from my part.

of course the above doesnt make it a bad picture.

Occluded responds:

I wish I knew if you viewed this large or not.

The idea is that these are the survivors of a catastrophe. The one up front is looking at a dirty teddy bear he's found in the rubble. And the other two were checking out a hollow. The spacecraft jets were originally blue, but I changed the color because I thought this fit better, but maybe it still doesn't fit.

Thanks for the thoughtful review.

cool

the robots looks familiar, did you get the basic design from something? they look kinda like the geth from mass effect, but i suppose all humanoid robots are gonna look kinda alike. the details is pretty good considering most of the stuff is meant to be far away, the detail on the closest robot is very good as well. Don't really like the... light? thrusters? whatever those bright yellow/ white and orangey/red bits on that space ship are. They stand out a bit too much in contrast to the rest of the picture.

I like it but I would have liked to see a bit more action going on, even just a few more robots/ spaceships going around would be cool. Maybe some explosions in the background showing it ain't over yet. (whatever has happened) But I suppose it would have to be bigger for that... whatever. Good job.

Occluded responds:

Naw. I've never even played Mass Effect. Which is tragic because I do like me some Knights of the Old Republic. And I know it's the same company. And it's supposed to be an awesome game. I supposed I could have pulled some elements from the zeitgheist. I just looked it up. I honestly don't see it. The coloring yeah, but past that...

The thrusters. That's a good point. I painted this on stickam, and got notes from people as I went. I had a couple of people tell me they're too bright, and a couple people tell me they were too dim. So this is kinda where they settled. But I guess that's another vote for too bright. Probably won't change them unless I get a really compelling reason.

F**k. You just made me think of something I wanted to add. S**t. If falling ash suddenly appears it's because you made me remember I had wanted to add it. Anyway. I intended to make the scene quiet, and still I had played around with fires still burning in the sketch, but it started to feel too busy.

Thanks for the thoughtful review.
