 I dragged some inspiration from Star Fox :P

So this is basically the entry for this week's challenge. And I'm pretty much proud of it. I hope you like it :) Took me about a day to make it all, I think.

I hope you don't mind if I chip in with some crits here. But It's only because i thought that your initial lineart had so much potential and I agree with the points Jal made in the forum. I did a coloration of your lines. The only thind I touched was the dolphin ( because It was irresistable!) Your piece comes off as a bit sloppy thanks to the lack of AA and a lot of jaggies throughout the piece, but also due to the dithering which is pretty harsch and stands out compared to the whales, The fact that they all use different color ramps also make the piece feel a bit disjointed. If you're gonna stick to limited pallete, the smartest thing to do is to make as much use of the colors available to you as possible. Not only will it the piece look more unified, but you're also given more colors to work with ( if one color can take on multiple roles).

I'm only writing this because I thought your lineart was superb! So keep it up, I think you can push this a lot further!

 Actually, that's a narwhal wearing a space helmet :) Try comparing the narwhal and the space helmet with the swordfish and the crystal ball and you'll see the difference ;)

About the savety feeling thing... I didn't really think of that. All I though of was the narwhal's tusk being too long to fit in the space helmet, therefore penetrating it.

Great, but I wonder how the swordfish (in the right bottom corner) gets a savety feeling in his crystall ball...
