Oh good lord how do you manage it? You're like...an incredible artist at an insanely young age...6 hours...
I love the way the flames are so believeable...at the top they look like curling smoke sorta thing. Also the face is almost perfectly proportioned, although i think the right eye is a little smaller than the left one. I also adore the little bits of hair that fall over her face, it shows such attention to detail. And thats as close as I've ever done to a proper crit. Hope its helpful =P

Hey Raven! I love this pic a lot! I can tell you put some work into it, but having it done in a day?? Wow, you're good!:XD:

Here are some of my observations on this pic. First of all, the sleeve and the background are AMAZING. There's a lot of texture in the sleeve that makes it really look feathery and light to me. The bg also has some of that same quality, but you can still tell it's fire from the flames at the top. I hope you remember well how you did those two parts.:D

The face stands out as something that most need improvement. Right now, it looks to me like the mouth and the chin are both slanted towards the left. I suggest you flip the image horizontally, which makes it easy to see that something's off, especially in symmetrical structures. I hope this is easy to fix.^^;

I second Sajira about cropping the canvas, so the person doesn't look too centered, and I think you can use her diagonal form more effectively. Overall, this is a very solid pic, and it's definitely one of my favorites.:)

Ooooh, it's pretty. ^_^ Job well done.

Well, as you should know, this crit is coming from my eyes only, not from a real artist's perspective.

Only crits I really have deal with anatomy. I think the nose looks good, but the way you shaded it makes it look a tad bulbous. Maybe only shade it on one side instead of both? And also, I think her shoulder is a little too high up. If that's the position you wanted that's fine, but if you wanted a relaxed position I think it should be moved down a bit.

But dude, this is gorgeous. I LOVE the way you did the feathers, and the way they blend into the bg. And I think the hair is beautiful. ^_^ One more thing. I'm sure you intended this, but the sleeve that morphs into the rest of the dress confuses me a little... Or is that all the sleeve and that's just a wrinkle? o_O I'm sorry, I can't tell.

This is such a pretty pic, I'm sure everyone will love it. ^_____^

Thanks ^__^ yeah I was sort of planning to go back and work on the nose. gaaah noses kill me >__<

And the whole part is the sleeve, thats just the hem or the sewed part that holds the cloth together or whatever its called. XD

First comment YES!!! Well I enjoy the play of light on her goldensilky stuff. You want a critique huh? *Cracks knuckles* LETS GET STARTED!!! Uuuuummm...hhhmmm... teh highlights on her hair are to controled, no one has hair that shines perfect and if her hair is billowy have strands flying off a bit more instead of all in one place more like this [link] (not the same style I know but work with me here) . Also I think the pic is a little off balanced I would crop the left side so there isn't a gaping emptyness so you will have to move the pretty signature over. Last I think you could give a little more definition to her chin so it doesn't blend into her neck then it will be perfect. Her face is wonderful and expressive I would say those tutorials are certainly paying off. Like I said the gold is beautifull and I can tell you spent time on it.

Over all with your style I would say you should loosen up a little when it comes hair but other than that an all around lovely pic :hug: :glomp:

Hope that helped some cuz I wish people would do this for me, telling someone how they can improve is a wonderful thing because it makes one better. All I ever here is that I am really good or really bad no help just statements.

I will fav this lovely pic because it makes me think of Ursa.

Thanks SO much. Yeah, i hate when people just say if its good or bad but don't actually give me tips. Anywho, thanks SO much for your crits, they really helped. I'm going to make changes later, like the chin and croping the side. But I don't know about the hair, I spent like 2 hours on it XDD So I might just be lazy and leave it >__>

I understand that ^3^ I hate hair, fur, anything like that in fact so does Pixar and dreamworks and other 3d animators so I don't feel so bad knowing I am not alone out there. Hair has a life of its own thanx to wind and movement of the character it is attached to. Believe my I am not the greatest at hair and it took me Forever <b/> to get to where I am. Your welcome for the help and i am glad to be of service.
