Can't believe my account still exists. Hey PJ, how'a doing?



Here's mine so far. Pink Floyd's Animals. Decided to mock up a SHMUP because of the flying pig in the cover.
Edit: Man I am terrible at posting images here.

I'm doing Pendulum's Immersion. The plan is to have a giant jellyfish in the middle instead of two people. Also I know this is a bad way to work but it's actually going quite well for me.

Hi people, I tried some lighting and shadings, I'm not sure how I feel about the rock.

Any suggestions? Please?
