    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.
    If you're going to get flash you should invest in a tablet or learn how to use the curves tool. Drawing in flash is an irritating mess without one, since it smoothes out the lines for you, which may give you good or bad results.

    If you want to get into animation properly, skip flash and go for toonboom or as mentioned TVpaint. Flash is very pricey and only really pays off if your willing to get into the coding actionscript side or website integration. Tutorial books are the best start.

    If you can't afford an animation program, A good thing to do is open up your favorite drawing program and start practicing animation frame by frame. You can check your final animation by just looking at one picture/frame after the other in windows picture viewer or find a program that converts the separate images into .gif or movie file.

    Part of the assignment is to show clear influence of another artist's styles, so that's probably why there's such a strong connection.

    Did you enlarge like a 100x100 thumbnail and then put that ship on it?

    I added the ship and the title and put the picture through a couple filters to try and give it better resoulution and enhance it.

    Could have improvised, I dunno if that earth-like planet is canon or whatever but the one in the background could easily be substituted with a tweaked Jupiter, if you got a decent resolution pic of the first one it would be a ten-minute job

    The ship's quality is rubbish as well, I'm sure you could dig up better

    Filtering google image results to show large pictures only is your friend

    and some early progress on a 80s painting I'm doing. I might have bit off more than I can chew by going with a pose like that combined with slight bird's eye perspective but oh well we'll see how it ends up.

    Text doesn't contrast enough with the background and/or is too busy to be readable. Try making it a different colour and if it's still difficult try changing the saturation of the images inside the text. Maybe try colourising them

    Yeah, hoping the person requesting it will provide good images. I just searched "beautiful landscape" and these were two of the first results. Will be doing much more work on the final image, so thanks for the input.
