This started in WIP, where some people said the background needed work. After I fixed the background (hopefully) no one commented. So, here is the update, from the end of Girl Genius volume III.
It’s a cartoon, obviously, not meant to be photorealistic. I’m using the reference for inspiration, but I’m not concerned with making an exact duplicate. I’d like some feedback on the compostition, color, lighting, and so on. Agatha has just escaped captivity after a battle with aliens, saw her parents killed during her escape, dodged a murder attempt by tossing the miscreant overboard, and learned that, because of who she is, she will cause trouble where ever she goes. It’s a very dramatic moment as she flies off into the sunset. I’d like this image to capture that feeling.
