For weekly challenge.

Romans lost in space and now landed on the Mars. They are beginning scouting...


About spaceship in the background... I don't know how it should work. But it works. I think)

Mars has sky, you can google it)

About fading red in the distance... I know about this mistake, but see it too late. I should think about it at the start of work. Unfortunately, now I have no spare time to fix it.

Anyway, thanks for your reply. I always welcome any critique about my pictures)

Nice effort. There are a lot of problems and rookie mistakes here, but you've had a good go. At the moment there's so much that can be critiqued and fixed, but the biggest is the separation of the land and sky. I don't think Mars has sky, but that's irrelevant for the piece, really.

What I would look at if I were you, is fading out the reds in the distance so that they becoming progressively more grey to match the sky. This will give you a better effect of depth by showing some distance. At the moment the horizon is one very clear edge. It will also help make your romans and your flag stand out.

For reference, look at the jut of land and the sea on the horizon on the Settlers box case.
