Final Leap Final Leap

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love those kind of dreams...

Pros: Everything

Cons: I'm wrecking my mind trying to find some. Failed.

I know that this shouldn't count as a review, but you did such a good job that I just had to leave a praising comment. You nailed that dream feeling. I don't know if you were falling in the dream, but this just makes me shudder and think of soaring. Excellent job!


ChrisDaemon responds:

Thank you for the review!

That was a really nice dream tbh. I'm glad you think I did a good job depicting it.


Soldier Soldier

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It's good, but has potential to be better.

Pros: The detailing on the armor suit and jet pack are great, and I think the simple colouring works well for the picture. The blues of the suit go well with orange mist, but I may just have a slight bias towards the blue-orange colour scheme--it's my favorite.

Cons: The poise of the soldier made it difficult for me to initially make out what the figure actually was. This could be amended with a tiny addition of detail--a sillouette of the soldier's face in the visor, or his right somewhat peeking out from behind his body--anything like that would help give a humanoid shape away. Perhaps if the feet were more visible, it would be clear, but you seem to want them obscured by the orange fog, so perhaps not.

Advice(aka my own unprecedented personal opinion): One way to clear up some of the detail on the armor would be to have the fog set a little lower at his feet, rather than all the way near his shoulders. If you put effort into detailing the suit, don't cover it up!

I can't think of anything more to nitpick. Good job, and I hope this review was helpful. If not, there's that ever-so-useful red button to the lower left.

Crimson Crimson

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Great dragon; it looks punkish.

Maybe it's the attitude eye and the beard(?), but it looks young and rebellious. The bone spikes seem out of place; perhaps there should be more of them or none at all. The fur at the end of the tail seems odd, too. Perhaps a longer tail or the fur narrowing at the end of the tail would suit it better. But, overall, you nailed the dragon body structure. You should take the time to spend more detail on a realistic dragon, I have the feeling you'd excel at it.



Ice Storm Ice Storm

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Beautiful yet boring.

Boring in the sense that I suspect that just as much effort went into it as your Author Comment. There are filters and generators that can produce effects like these quite easily on most digital painting programs, such as the flame rendering on GIMP. It could have been as simple as you searching through a picture list of randomly-generated effects, and saying "I like this one". The marks I give generously are for the fact that the picture does have a pleasing quality to the eye and does have some balance, but again I suspect that you did not have too much thought in it. Of course, if I'm totally wrong and you painted each brush stroke manually, please forgive me, and let me know so I give you a better vote.

You are one-third correct, sir. Your vote is justified.


Unfilled, Unfulfilled Unfilled, Unfulfilled

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nice attention to intricate detail!

This is something that not many others would do; focus a huge amount of brain matter on a single object to learn how reacts with its environment in art. Great job. The only nit-picking that I can think of is that the rim has a slightly odd and uneven shape to it. Oh, and I'd love to see what it would look like half filled wither water, but don't lose sleep over it. Now go try a glass figurine...joking.


Etheria responds:

Well I decided to do this because I wanted to challenge myself - you know, push the envelope a bit to see what I'm really capable of. A glass filled with water sounds intriguing... XD


too sad? too sad?

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Excellent job!

The facial work is amazing and realistic--the face itself is thin and physically drawn, slightly off-putting. The lack of colour elsewhere really highlights the eyes--something I appreciate in art. My only question(and not a criticism) is why the caption/title is "too sad?" when the face looks more curious or even frustrated instead of 'sad'? Oh well, only the artist knows. Again, excellent job.


beefychew responds:

i might have thought it looked sad because of the way it turned out compared to the original photo. i would agree that it's maybe a bit more expectant or curious rather than "sad". thanks for your comment, much appreciated :D


Amazing underwater background Amazing underwater background

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Good, but needs a little more realism.

It does convey the sense that you are underwater looking up at the sun through the surface. However, since it looks like you're going for a sense of realism(I'll at least assume it), more detail is needed, such as the glare of the sun on the surface. I'm not sure, but I think that the glare should be circular, not oval. And if there are any kind of waves up there, the glare should be speckled and distorted.

Other points:
#1. I don't know which perspective you're going for, but the darker region near the bottom(unless it's a shadow on the surface) makes it seem like a horizontal view. So then the sun has to be somewhere in its rise or descent.
#2. Those wavy lines--are they supposed to be the weird lines you get on the base of a pool in the sun? Because they usually only appear on solid object under or near water, not in the water itself.
#3. The rays of light coming down look perfect...except that a couple of them might be crooked. Rays usually travel in a straight line.

Hope this review helped. I'd be glad to review other work, too.


Alanosborn responds:

Thanks for the feedback Im making some adjustments now to make it better.

So thanks for the constructive criticism it helps =)
