I love scifi, just not the kind of fantasy side of it. 

GUNPEY (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/26/2013 12:13

 Amazing!! excellent perspective!

This is one of my favorites from your gallery. Everything is perfect, now that youve made some modifications. Meaby make some other space-themed picture? Id love to see more.

Inspires a sense of adventure.

 I really like this piece a lot!  It would make a good ending scene for a 2d shoot-em-up game... like have this scene in the background while the credits scroll and triumphant music plays.   ;)

Also, I actually kind of like the contrast between the ship and the rest of the scene.  Though, i will say some of the background colors might look nice as highlight colors on the ship itself.  Reflective color is always a nice touch.

 What Skurwy87 said. I really,really like it a lot faved it already :)
Spaceship for me looks kinda like from a 80s/90s sidescollr shooter thou. 

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 9/21/2010 01:07

nicely done. . . would work great as a 50s sci-fi book cover. congrats!

Thanks for your c&c everyone, I updated the picture with some of your input and also changed a couple of small things I found odd. I'm not going for a 16 colour palette here though, colour count is not that important for me on this picture.

aniljp (Level 2 Dealer) @ 9/20/2010 07:08

excellent work .... reminds me of star wars ...

I like everything except the colors.  Skamocore's edit is a good example of what you could do. 

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/19/2010 14:47

It's a nice scene, but come on, you can do much better than this. A lot of this is very sloppy and the colours could use some refinement, especially in the way of contrast and hue. 16 colour edit. Mainly just played around with colours, not individual pixels.

Oha!  A new pic by robotriot?!

jazcks (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/19/2010 11:45

beautiful, good job

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 9/19/2010 11:33

very nice atmosphere  

6dof (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 9/19/2010 11:24

Very beautiful. The only thing that bugs me are the planet's rings. Maybe they are too simple, or just to much contrast between them and the background (they look too solid). Wait... Are they rings?

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 9/19/2010 10:25

true sci-fi image! cool! 

Lizard (Level 5 Sniper) @ 9/19/2010 10:18

Just beautiful.

Roxerg (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 9/19/2010 09:49

I think it would look good without spaceship. It just gets out of context 'couse it's colors are totaly different.

InvaderOz (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 9/19/2010 09:33

Great, the clouds and the spaceship are great, the station and the big planet could need a little more work in my opinion.

Nevertheless great and epic piece.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 9/19/2010 09:20

This is so amazing! But it would be so much better with nicer colors! 

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 9/19/2010 08:58

This is epic! Would make a great cutscene!
