I really haven't given up on this... just slowed down a bit.
C+C still appreciated

This is awesome!  It reminds me very much of Space Quest III :-)  Don't stop.

I'd like to see some moss covering some surfaces (such as glass), because it still looks quite clean. Vegetation could be popping out of grooves such as the sides of a screen or a board. I think you need to try and integrate your character to the background furthermore, by maybe adding a trail of goo or something from where he came from. I assume this character is the gardener, so I suggest you give him a tool in his other hand or something.
I really like that quirky character design, I'm waiting for more!

Omg I love this, Im going to be super picky but I don't really see any "high tech" stuff onboard this ship it kinda looks like a normal control room that we have now a days with a space view  :crazy:

Nice work, it looks really awesome. I like your color choices and my only critique was to get rid of the black outline, which you did a long time ago.

Glad to see this is still going! It's got a lot of promise.

One thing that's been bothering me is that it looks so monochrome. I wasn't able to put my finger on it for quite some time, but when I went in to edit your pic in photoshop, a few color tweaks instantly revealed the problem to me.

I don't have much time to go in-depth here so I'm going to just give you my edit, and hope you can take what you can from it. I don't really doubt you can. Basically, I hacked in some more organic lighting and tried filling out the scene to look a little less vacant.



edit: also, as you can see, I tried to maintain the same color theme you have, but shifted the bg colors to better harmonize with alien. As you had them, they contained a lot of blues and browns, which go great together, but don't work nearly as well for bright greens and magentas. Overall it presented a general muddiness, and somehow detracted from the vibrant colors of the alien.


and one with the moon bringing back some of your older colors to contrast with the scene.

Right now the moon has too much priority in the picture, it almost seems to be on the same level as the control thingie. i would darken it up a bit and have some reflections from the glass breaking it up a bit.

I liked it much better when it lacked the darker outlines, it seemed much smoother. I prefer it that way, but it's an artistic choice.

It's looking nice. I think the foliage in the corner could use some more attention, some parts lack a really organic feeling and don't really resemble leaves. Otherwise this is looking very nice and I'm looking forward to a finished product! Keep at it, man. :)
