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. :D 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. :dummy:

Amazing detail. And unrecognizable as pencil.
I have the feeling that it reminds me of something, erhm...
Whatever! Really nice, great atmosphere
i was just wondering - all the lace patterns you use, particularly the round doily-like ones, do you draw them all yourself? or what O: ? thanksss
Wow, really amazing. *__*

That's so beautiful - all the amazing details are making my eyes water T_T
wow....its so awesome
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!
absolutely breathe taking! i wish i could draw it by hand! you are a fantastic artist!
