For the cutscene challenge again!  I wanted to do something with full colour and somehow I ended up doing a basically monochromatic scene anyway.  12 colours this time.
The scene is from the movie Alien (1979).  Not a very iconic scene from the movie, but I found the planet's surface, which is only briefly visited, to be awesome.

 You sir, are amazing.

Yukoviz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2011 06:19

 Beautiful. The colors seem a bit off when you compare them to the colors seen in the actual movie, but I think this is actually an improvement. Well done.

I remember the first day I saw the derelict.

KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 12/4/2010 11:47

Youve captured a great atmosphere in here, making the piece stand out. By atmosphere I mainly mean your color use and shading. Anyway it is a clear 5/5...

It's amazing how smooth this is. I can't begin to understand how you accomplished that.

I can say only WOW! Really great work.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/26/2008 00:16
This is splendid! You captured the atmosphere from the reference picture very well, I even like it more than the ref! And Alien is indeed a cult movie! Looking forward to seeing you in hall of fame and in my favorites!

flaber (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/25/2008 23:41
That is a gorgeous sky.
I feel I can learn from you, and this piece for a new texture. Im always looking, and you have really captured something new and intrigueing.

the cliffs could use a few harsher shadows thrown about it, comparing to the reference... not a fan of the 50% dither on the stones/cliffs. Looking at the sky, Im sure you could have developed a much stronger and effective texture for the rocks.

Great sky again.
I plan to reference this when looking for a new intrigguing texture

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/25/2008 22:32

The sky is EPIC! 

I wish you would change the preview because I almost didn't open it. 

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/25/2008 22:14
fourth that. lol. Weekly showcase, possibly hall of fame?

DeProgrammer (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/25/2008 21:39
I also second that motion! Or do I third it? Either way, excellent work.

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/25/2008 21:24
I second that motion.

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 1/25/2008 21:15
This is out-fucking-standing.
