It's one thing to have a menacing silhouette or a mystery ship in the distance, it's another thing to have it RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU and you have to artificially tone down the brightness so you can't tell what it is. You're either showing it off in all its majesty, or you're teasing us. Right now you're trying to do both and it's not working. Take a cue from Black Wolf...
There were lots of questions about what that ship in the background was, replied mostly with
. That's the way you tantalize people. You can tel it's new and different, and you can make out some detail, but it's still a mystery.
If you want to show a Battle for Mars, you want to show these ships in their full glory, guns blazing, with drama and action. Fuzzing it out doesn't work here. Get closer and show off the models you've all worked on, or make it more subtle.
*phew* That's my second art critique today.
