I am not too keen on the spaceship myself as you mentioned but I am sure if it was more curved it would be fitting to the scene. It just appears to blocky and unusually layered. Having said that, I really like the sillouttes and the mountain.
You've done a great job to render the mood of the scene, you can almost feel you're there! Probably because of those nice cool colours and the point of view you chose. The design of the spaceship is quite original even if I find it a tad bit messy. I like all the small lights though :)
Ooo, nice. But I don't quite get it how you can fit those 15 colours in there.
Well, the ship is certainly different, and I agree it could look a little more like a far out type of aircraft. The people rule! I don't see how you guys AA so well, it must take a lot of practice.
Did you use a blend mode for the vertical light beam?
