    You've neglected the very top left hand corner of the planet which kind of breaks the form for me. But i'm just being picky :p Also i'm not sure if I like the soft edge on the planet looks correct or not. Perhaps still soft but not that much.

    Armor design I made. The figure/face doesn't do it any favours though :/ was going for a moon theme, thought the moon-like hooks being used to hold straps would be cool.

    I'll be honest, I had to compare the two pictures to find out what changed.

    Edited:

    Planet seems far too visible to me, given the fact that if light was hitting it at such a front-on angle, it would be daytime in the image, thus the sky would be blue, the atmosphere alive and anything as distant as a planet would look more like our moon (or the Death Star in the shots from the Endor planet surface).

    Basically I think you need to fade dat ho

    Yeah, maybe if you just give it a blue tinge.

    I think it would also be better if you gave it a harder edge, or if the side that we're seeing is where the light is falling off, we should see it going in a curved direction such as this:



    Here's some other examples:



    As you can see they have much harder edges, but still slightly soft. They also have those highlights around the edge where the sunlight's hitting it, and maybe a little glow of atmosphere would make it look even better.

    Keep up the good work.

    Decided to make myself a basic wallpaper while practicing Inkscape.
    Made from scratch (Vector).

    Tempted to do a full body iron man and get it printed lifesize just cause it would look awesome.

    The flame texture inside the shapes just looks so... cheap. Same with the waterdrops, I'd keep them at least consistently the same way up and not other tails pointing up and other down.

    The flame texture is actually just the sunset with a bit of colour balance, or do you mean the solid colour of the flame swirls?
    If the latter, I wanted to do solid colours over a photograph because of the Here Comes the Indian Cover. That's where that inspiration came from. Although yeah, it is quite different being that it's been traced over, and compositionally hasn't really changed, but I still thought it looked cool.

    Yeah I know it's a more hand-drawn approach rather than my more graphical one, but I wanted to try something different. I'm happy with it.

    Also, I flattened the back cover to copy it onto the template file, and I accidentally closed the file. So it's flattened and I can't change anything on it. So I can't change the raindrop orientation without completely redoing it. I'm not too fussed though, I'm happy with how it turned out.

    I think the varied waterdrop tail direction looks good - gives it a slight chaotic motion and feels more like rain. If they were all pointing upwards they'd feel like they were 'swooping' in like birds or planes

    Edited:

    Also title text too close to top border, uncomfortable

    Yeah that's true. Rain doesn't necessarily fall at the same angle:



    It zig-zags and overlaps, that's what I was trying to show by having the rain drops at different angles / flipped.


    Also title text too close to top border, uncomfortable
    Ah awesome thanks. I didn't notice that.

    Well, honestly, I want to get into animation but I haven't a bloody clue as to where I should start, including what software I should use (or whether I should software at all), and just all of the general basic stuff.

    Do you guys have any good starting guides or anything? I'm groping in the dark here.

    TVPaint seems to be a good alternative (though I never heard of it before), and the results can be amazing on this too.


    There are some informations and tips about the software itself and the process on this blog (which was also made by the artist from the video above).

    Otherwise, like said above, Adobe Flash is the average solution for animations.

    If you want to get into animation, the Animator's Survival Kit is the most recommended book I've seen. It goes over the foundations of animation and all that jazz, and is a great book to reference.

    As for programs, yeah, you can use whatever gives you the functionality to animate. Adobe Flash is common (I wrestle with this dreadful program more often than not) and TVPaint looks cool but I've never tried it (it's onion skin function is way more useful than flash's, and it breaks away from That Flash Vector Look) but honestly they're just means to an end.

    There's Pencil, which is free, but I have no idea how that program works. The MSPaint of the animation world is Easytoon (also free), which lets you create monochromatic animations but lacks the bells and whistles of the other programs.

    This is my first attempt at making a movie poster ever (grunge bandwagon). I had an assignment to do one for class which I thought would be fun but I couldn't think of many clever designs. Anyway we only have 3 days to do it and it's not really my field so crits are very welcome (and needed!)
