267: DESTROY THE BERSERK CORE by crybringer 267: DESTROY THE BERSERK CORE by crybringer
Now THIS is how I color! I want to step up my game, and I feel most comfortable when I'm tasked to bring lighting into play. Yes, lighting is a large part of rendering, but I'm no Hyung Tae Kim, nor do I want to be. I want to find my own 'voice' in computer coloring, and I think this is probably the closest to it.

I used one of my old compositions to inspire this pic. Definitely merits a listen! Yes, I did make this.

Ohhh DAMN! That Core is going to be such a goner!

I really need to play Gradius Gaiden at some point. Even just experiencing the game is worth dying all the time! XD

Total agreement on the color and light. Very atmospheric. And the explosion is nicely styled :)

Awesome work on this. Nice jet fighter-like design on it, though how do you destroy the core if there isn't a way to shoot at it? :O_o:

Nice work w/ the MP3 too.

I must say, I'm tempted now to bust out "Gradius Galaxies" for the GBA! The music is awesome and goes most excellent with the pic! And about the pic.. SWEET JESUS! It's outstanding!! Looks like somekind of preview for one of the games! Kick a$$! (usually I'm more composed.. -_- But lack of sleep will do this! :U)

Very nicely done. Especially on the lighting effects for the explosion.

For some reason, when I saw this picture, I wanted to say "It's A Trap!"
But that would just be silly. The music you composed fits well this image. Great job all around.

the music is top notch, awsome for something like a sub boss or something fast pace like a mob on enemies...

The picture on the other hand looks pretty epic as in... i-dont-want-to-be-on-that-ship-at-this-time type of picture XD

awsome job with the explosion lighting
