These are all great. Love the original designs on those ships, especially!

If dusk or dawn is the correct setting, then to me, those distant buildings should be black, silhouetting against the sky behind it. If its supposed to be daytime, then the ground should be lighter in appearance, with more color contrast in the texture to bring out the subtleties of varied building materials and also have a much brighter sky.

Please dont take my criticism as an attack. If you're in a design class you should be used to the critique, and having a BFA in Studio Art I'm hoping you'll be open to a proper critique in addition to the many dropped jaws and drooling you'll get from this audience.
Perhaps he's just going for the whole "contrast" thing so that the background buildings stand out better? There's also the whole "artistic license" thing to keep in mind, I'd think.

I'm enjoyin' it for what it is - some fun-lovin' art that gets my imagation runnin'.


Itís advised that you thoroughly research those from whom you plan to purchase from Garage Kit Manufacturers that you donít know!
