Thanks for the honest feedback, I'm working to reduce the blur and create more focus. This is one of those good learn'n pieces.

In terms of composition and colours you've nailed this.

The only thing missing is that you haven't chosen a point to focus on. It appears that the the the creature guy further away is telling the story in the image so my critique would be to eliminate that blurry-ness around him and the little guy he's pointing at, define those edges around them and as a result should hopefully make them both pop out in the image as a focus point.

I just got told off for not meeting the minimum word count for this so I guess the only other minor criticism is the grey smoke coming out of the crashed ship. Because the image is so vibrant and full of colour the grey smoke feels a little out of place. In real life it probably would be that colour but for illustration purposes I would make it more orange/yellow so that it works with the current colour scheme in a friendlier way.

Here's a little visual aid to demonstrate: [link]

Other than that, great job!

Oh crap, I love the composition in this!  Very nice. I might like to see some more of those cooler shadows in the foreground, but it's great!

Love it. The creatures are so organic and the contours of their bodies look so natural. Awesome!

Nice work Lane, , think it's a bit too blurry, but the thumbnail is really great, very strong silhouettes, nice balance in the characters. It has a lot more potential!
