For that recent one, although it did end up looking cool, I kind of like the very first concept of it best out of all of them.
Looks cool....this is key art? Hope you continue to flesh it out. Love the elements here that create the story.Lighting - Good start but I think there should be more shadow areas with darker colors. Highbeam lighting from truck should be more refined. Same as the phosphorus lighting coming from the flare (if that is a flare). I think your lighting can capture the mood better and you should keep working on that. Mood color choices -- I think you should go through some simplistic overlay color options to get more mood injection and then refine from there. Depth and focus - sharpen for the camera angle and focus you are trying to get and un-sharpen the rest Framing elements - Manipulate the elements in your image to "frame" most important elements of the image Picky stuff - Check your characters gesture lines. And if you are up for it pose the characters to enforce this story. The gestures are stiff and this may be what you are conveying, but you may also want more action in their pose to convey stronger mood. Looks great so far keep fleshing it out!
