Review: The piece is well executed! You clearly know where the light source is and how to use shading in dramatic and realistic places. Your use of anatomy is pretty accurate! My one critique for the anatomy is that the eyes are a bit too close together. Not very badly though, so the facial features looks a bit too small/centered. The nose is also positioned just a smidge too high. Though all of this can be dismissed if the model has different facial features from the average anatomy rules. I love the text! You clearly put a lot of effort into it and the variety of lettering style is very eye-catching! I had slight difficulty reading it the first three times, however, because I'm very used to the left-to-right-top-to-bottom style of reading that. The execution of the piece is also done very well. Your eyes are at once drawn to the face, then to the surround words. The main focus is slightly to the left, which is good visually! The position is also very natural! I really like this piece, so good job!
Beautiful use of color! You clearly know how and what tones to use to get across the messages of light and dark. You've got very beautiful details throughout this piece, adding to the thoughtful process you clearly undertook. A lot of the lines are really thick, which makes the picture look just a bit clunky in places. Maybe considering varying line width a little. Your concept of anatomy is perfect, as far as I can tell, and the set up of the picture is stunning. Very well done!
mintedstar/fur So true! Unless your me and just look at a 3D model when I'm drawing humans XD
I'm working on a few requests and commissions besides my career's projects, and struggling to decide between drawing my favorite OC in a Santa themed hoodie and hat or drawing her brother-in-law crankily dressed in a santa outfit XD What about you? What're you up to?
Because humans are a pain in the butt, here's a goofy Jaylight/Briarfeather piece I did earlier this year Xd (P.S I'd love to hear a review Xd)

I mean, I look at 3D models as well if I'm actually putting effort in. XD Sometimes I do it from memory but it doesn't always go as good. Luckily I found several places which has models you can move around.
Oooo! I love the sound of your OCs. XD It sounds very humorous! Well, I'm doing holiday gifts for friends right now (reason I haven't posted any art lately, whoops). I just finished two cats and an acrylic painting of Loki.
That's a very good piece!
Review: I love seeing how much you're improving over the course of this year! You're mastering anatomy really well. You have a good grasp of coloring - all the colors are very striking and make the piece really pop. I particularly like that you used light lines to show where the light source was coming from (i.e. the front of the den). The expressions are also very good - Briarlight is my favorite out of the two. You can clearly tell what she's thinking. My one critique, which I have seen you greatly improving on over this year, is that often the bodies are very closed in. Heads are often just a bit too narrow, as are the chests and hips. Learning a couple of proportion tricks might help. I know a couple for humans, but not as many for cats. Though I could probably find some. Another wonderful thing about your piece is the backgrounds. You clearly put a lot of thought into your shading and brush choice. It all works very well with the piece and isn't overwhelming. Overall a really good job!
