Well, half of it actually...

Created for a super epic space shmup I'm making.

Looks good. I like your choice in colors. I would love to see animated thrusters.

Looks okay right now.  All I can really point out is that the highlights on the "thrusters" are reverse what the should be compared to the rest of the piece's highlights.  Cool stuff though, I want to see more of this!

I agree with Rydin, but I think you need more depth to it as well. It would be much more interesting if there were some sections jutting out towards us, etc.

very cool, I like it a lot already!  :D :y:
there is only one thing that bothered me a little, is the horizontal line you have on the top right part (with two darker pixel on it)
like this I don't really know if it's painted or a crease... for a crease, I think the line should be darker.. I did a small edit,
(edited other stuff more for fun than necessary but maybe will give you ideas ^^)

keep it up, can't wait to see more of this game!  ;)

Looks great now,
but I'd like to see more specular highlights from the flames on the metal thrusters. They always give things a much more realistic feel.

I like the design of the ship a lot!  I agree with Pownatized, in that it needs more depth, right now it looks almost completely flat.  I really like the colors on this!
The above post may not be helpful at all, as the author usually has no idea what he is talking about.

It's bloody excellent is what it is. Nice n' clean.

Reminds me of Cybernator on the SNES.

Well I changed some things and tried to add more depth. Mainly adding more shadow around the bottom edge and under the blocks that stick out. I also changed the shading around the black panels.
