I made this when I was in a 70s mood. I think I spent a good hour or hour and a half making the lava alone...

this piece has a fairly dull perspective forcing alot of boring straight lines, experiment with different angles such as a low right hand side angle would have a large impact on this.

as people have mentioned youve used to many colours and its pillow shaded. this about the light source, surely theres some light comming off the 'lava' in the object and this would have an effect on how the object is shaded.

the number of colours youve used is very high at a glance (i dont have the software to check it now) this culd be well shaded and actialy look more realistic if you used less colours and some dithering in combination with more detail about the lighting of this piece. anothing thing that would help this piece is some AA, alot of the edges have very sharp corners and it looks like a pyramid not a cone, but some AA would help alot.

and finaly the animation of the lave is rather slow and choppy, you need more frames and to play it at a faster rate. at your current speed and nu,mber of frames its dificult to see where one piece leads off another piece. in all honesty a lava lamp wasnt that great an idea for an unexperianced animation.

dunno if thats bene of help atall or if your even going to change it, but i guess its there to help someone =)

Arg! Too many colors and pillow shading. Also, I think you could have made the lava have more frames.
