As Persephone watches from a distance, The ferryman docks to greet the new souls to send them to the underworld.

I wanted to keep the whole Mythos about Charon and incorporated it on Pluto's moon.

This is best viewed at 2x in my opinion. Good job.

Looks great but that static smoke is disturbing.

But it looks great!

I couldn't read the boat properly for a while, because the bit with the pumpkin tied to it doesn't move! 

An awesome piece though, love the colours, and the edge of the water!

The smoke doesn't appear to be that far away to me. At least, not as far away as clouds. I think it should have a slow rising animation to it, I think that would convey a proper distance/size of it. Plus I feel like it could be a nice contrast to the speed of the other animations, you know? (so far I don't think I've seen much slow animation from your work. I think you have potential to make some really smooth stuff). By the way, how many frames does this have before the loop?

Anyway, great piece! I love the colors and all the little details here and there. I think the placement of the moving parts in the composition were selected very well too, it really makes the piece come alive where it needs to. I feel like it even makes the moon's foreboding, but peaceful stillness even more effective. The animation on the boat is probably my favorite. Once again, great work!

Lovely! Love how you tied the myth to the moon.

Sure it's possible,
There are still 2 days till deadline
 
This piece is great, especially the textures and the animations
The only thing annoying me here is that smoke.. maybe the colors/shadowing/dithering/being idle... idk..
btw, that female alien.. 10/10... so sexy.. mmm... ~_~

Think it's possible to edit an already posted piece?

Wonderful landscape, i feel the atmosphere!! I agree with Cure, It would be great animation of smoke.


user
Philtomato (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/15/2015 16:18

I wanted to, but it didn't convey a good sense of distance if moved too much, so i just made it idle. Kinda like how clouds don't seem to move because they're just so far.

Great concept. Pluto looks awesome. Wish the orange smoke were animated though.
