I kinda liked the first photo. My suggestion would be to flood fill the skull with another light, so you get beams of light coming through the gaps (Eye's and Nose) onto the MOC.
I totally agree with that !
that's a nice entry, there's a lot of cruelty in it, a lot of violence, a lot of blood! I'm sure that some improvement can be made, Zorro/Erdbeereis/General Armandariz said approximately what you need to improve it^^ I just have to say that if you don't have actual/more expressive face, that's sad but I think you have no choices :/
I also love the burning sail, I thought about put one in my entry too, but I chose to make it already half burnt(the boat was shot before the pirates attack , the villagers extinguished it before it burnt completely ) , I prefered like this, but now that I see yours, I have to say that it looks really great !
I also like how you did the smoke coming out of the gun, but I don't really understand.. how can they stay like this ? they're flowers ok, but what pieces did you use to make it stay horizontal ?
anyway, I like your entry, with some improvement , I'll love it ! Good luck for the contest xpatriot270x =^w^=
