As for figuring out the shadow, no idea.

where the shadow is? someone should have paid attention in their drawing for designers & illustrators class...

love it.

I'm going to take a stab at it.

you got a hazy light source above, and you also got the blasters in the back.

so there's a cast shadow towards the viewer. in front of the dead grass bush..thing.

And I just noticed the little logo and info in the bottom. This is going to be a ad for magazine or poster?

The sundial comment is in the right direction but for what your doing in the animation its gonna take more calculation. The shadow should be warped and very long because of the angle the suns rays hit the ship it should fall almost off the page if not totally off the page. The scaling of the ship starts before the ship moves double check that and think about the parallax effect where your Background, middle ground and foreground move at different rates simulating realistic movement. We can talk more on that later bro but its all looking good

lol, damn ant u were (as always) paying really close attention...i didnt bother fixing it cause i didnt think anyone would notice, but yeah the scaling isnt in sync with the positioning. as for the shadows position, thanks all for the advice.

oh and to answer kelly's question...its neither a magazine or poster ad, i was jus doin it to brush up on my AE skills a bit
