I had a few more ideas and wanted to work on some more shawdows.  The deadline came up fast this week.

For exactly this purpose (proper positioning) in games developers use shadows under objects - since days of Zaxxon. So I highly recommend adding simple shadows (as simple as ellipses).

I also like this piece. Lots of action!

Looks good!

The ships are abit crude though, in design and shading, they could have used strong reflections to suggest shiny surfaces; and you can't decide how close or distant to the carrier (?) they are. Probably toning down the carrier darkest colors and outlines would help.

Nice background!
