JUSTIN MALLER for THE DEPTHCORE COLLECTIVE CHAPTER XLII "OBSOLETE".

This is the second in an unfinished trilogy. I set about creating the machines that would hunt and exterminate humans that had fled the concentrated slaughter in the cities.

Very excited to announce the Depthcore relaunch, featuring the new chapter, a new site design, and a new content rich format. Check it out!

A bit too"cheap" for me the way the robots appear on this piece.
Otherwise I love your works but this one is a bit weird. :)

I really like the Terminator type concept, the whole image is well built and has an aroma of destruction and death. However, to be honest, I don't know but the machines do not seem to blend very nicely with the background. Like, when I full zoom in, it kind of looks a bit unreal even though you put the shadows, and everything. The transparency in his wings and all.

However, it just looks as if you put a 3D machine onto a stock photo. I'd love to see you blend this one (:

don't really like the one on the right, but it's your image and im sure you had your reasons.
and i didn't love that you had like duplicated atleast one of the skeletons, but it's not the best collection of skeletons-stocks out there..

i like the left side of this piece, but it's a really unlikely picture, concidering that the skeletons would've lasted a day on the rocks, before the waves would've taken them back to the ocean.
i'm pretty sure you gonna hate me now, since u never asked for feedback, sorry.

The skull on the bottom-right doesn't look like he's "in" the scene; he looks kinda flat.

There is also an odd contrast in qualities between the rendered insectoids and the more photographic area, and for me this ruins the experience a little bit. I think the rendered figures look too perfect in some way.

Nice idea, a little 'darker' than your usual. I really don't want to be 'that guy' who doesn't make anything and just complains, so please don't take it that way, but the mecha-head things don't seem to be composited in as well as you usually do, though. The one in the front seems to pop off the top a little. Still looks stellar, just something about it seems off.
