Battle Royale!

Okay, so I wanted to create this big epic battle, ala Lord of the Rings; The Lion, Witch & the Wardrobe; etc. I imagined this huge vista, like Albrecht Altdorfer's "The Battle of Issus" or even Alan Lee's paintings of the various battles in Lord of the Rings. Anyway, um... this is what I ended up with. Oh well, it was worth a shot. Muse of the day: Steak and Shake.

first of... damn... Thats alot of guys... And is that the death star in the back? Or is it the ninja turtle technodrome? Also, you porbably already realized this, but you could make the battle seem more epic iwth a higher camera angle. Sort of a birds eye, but not quite.

Actually, it's Unicron, dammit (sans the outer rings). And, yeah, I could've gone for a higher angle. I don't know, I think I was trying to make the viewer feel like they're part of the battle. In fact, the dude to the far left (who's looking out of frame) was originally supposed to be waving the viewer forward into battle, but I ended up changing it a bit.
