I was thinking of submitting this design, but something still feels off about it. Critiques?
Perhaps... it's the balance of the piece? It's pleasing how the asteroids repeat the cosmo-kraken's pattern, but it might be helpful to position the the top right over to the left-- or another object on the left, in general. There's nothing I can see wrong about the octopus' position. Something to act as counterweight the surrounding action on one side.
Otherwise, I'm a fan of how the shuttle and the astro-leviathan read center to center right. Colour scheme is fun and right amount of energy. That star grid ties it together nicely
That might fix it. I'll see what I can do. Thanks!
I think that the shuttle looks too cut and pasted. Its a perfect profile and I think it would be more interesting if it was at a 3 quarter angle so you could see part of the roof and some of the opposite wing. Also the octopus doesn't look like he's that into the shuttle, its a half hearted grab at it rather than a swarm of tentacles trying to seize it.
I think you're on to something with that Wharton. I'll see what I can do.
I would love to see the Kraken vs. the International Space Station. What is the purpose of the grid? are you trying to replicate those old maps that show sea monsters attacking ships similar to this:
Is so, maybe you could add some aged textures to it to give it that "old" look.
If you aren't going for that look, maybe you could make the scene more "space-like" in the background?
Either way, I look forward to whatever you come up with.
Pretty much. I was thinking a play on antique star map, so more antique texturing would definitely help. I think the biggest problem at the moment is what Wharton pointed out. The shuttle isn't quite right. I have some ideas for updating it that might work.
And thanks for all the feedback!
