Wow, I'm not even sure I can really write a good critique. This work is fantastic -- the character himself doesn't have any obvious flaws. You drew his profile wonderfully (I always have trouble with profiles haha) and all the little details really make him stand out, despite the fact that he is so similar in hue to the background. You are a master with textures -- While having so many in one picture is often the killer of good pictures, you chose the right ones to put in the right places. The coloring, though subtle is done really well. I think I'd like to see a little more glow come off of the figure, though...the flowy thing ontop of the lantern barely glows like it should and perhaps just a touch on the chin and nose would be nice, but not necessary. It just looks like the latern is too bright to be giving off so little light in those areas. Wonderful work! I fav'd it. <3
I think that =Toonikun was genius in this! The feeling and image came out great! It looks outstaning! I love the colours in this one. And the komono (sp?) looks great! The deisigns are just...amazing! I love the brushes, as well. The effect is epic. The tones just blow me away. Amazing, just simply amazing. I can look at this all day in insperation. I'm sure that this is something you worked hard on. I don't find anything wrong with it. All I can say, is that this is something to be truly blown away by. **Sorry this is my first Critique
I find your artwork inspiring. In "Otherworld" I love the way you incorporate wonderful Renaissance patterns and art nouveau rendering into a united whole. Also the glow of the light and balance of dark and light is great. It is definitely other worldly!
The details simply take my breath away, this is a wonderful piece of art! I love the clothes and overall composition, but I have to ask - is it even possible that you made the ornaments by hand? If not, could you please tell me where you found such brushes?
Once again - I think this work is amazing. Best regards!
the combination of such different (and beautiful!) floral patterns and fluid lines create the most peculiar effect. the shadow/light treatment, harminous composition and sober color tones make this piece of work really overwhelming! congratulations. *
