The Aliens are trying to attack the city but the human is too tough. Finally, they decide to use Goliath, their huge and strongest robot. The army can't defense against Goliath, but David, a strong and brave man dares to do that.
I used the provided source for constructing the aircraft where David is standing on and making the screen on the side of the collapsed building.
Goliath was made mostly by drawing.

You really didn't leave any room for critiquing on this one did you! Couldn't find one thing to change or fix, you even added the reflection in the windows. Great job!

author says:

Thank you all for your compliments ^^. @Challty669: Yes, it is one of the entry I spent a lot of time and tried to make it perfect, but if I can improve my entry, I would add the reflection of the sky on the windows, and if you analyze the construction of the aircraft more carefully, you'll find that it's not very accurate in perspective, also the two arms of the robot are not identical in the shape and some drawing parts are not very "metal" as I want them to be. I want to add more debris from the collapsed building since it still looks intact. I almost didn't do anything on the city, just covered it with fire and smoke, but if possible I will use less smoke and blend in some destroyed buildings, cracks, explosions... It would take forever to add the details and to make a perfect entry, but after 4 days of working, it's quite desirable to me ^^.
