Fairy With Trees


Author Comments

Something I drew a long time ago. Critique does not give you an excuse to be nasty towards me. Try to be thoughtful, educational, responsive, and, yes, LIGHT in your language in your critique. I know this is asking a lot, but please, try to be as encouraging as possible. I am very sensitive, and must be treated delicately. You can point out what's wrong and what you think I can do to fix said mistake, but please, do not be rude. That's all I ask. Thank you.

P.S. Please rate FAIRLY, not based on my reputation, but based on the quality of the art itself. Zero-bombing because you hate me IS NOT HELPFUL. I don't do it to you, so I deserve the same courtesy. Thank you.


Man, why are you so obsessed with 'nice' reviews? Get off your high horse.

You're not helping any.

Good attempt at a gif. The bllod splats do not work. The trees look cool and yet crappily cut and pasted? This is an older piece so I'm not going to get into the specifics of the anatomy, I have as well as many others mentioned the anatomy on many of your pieces many times and it's usually the same problem. Not too say your not working on it or improving, just that it's a moot point to point out on an older piece.

I have been showing significant improvement over the last week.

I don't know what's supposed to be going on with the red, but the fairy and trees are done well.
I would have added a bit of a pause at the top and bottom to make the floating seem less mechanical and de-synchronized the red pulses with the floating, the prefect sync just adds to the rigidity of the situation.
for the trees, if the red is supposed to be blood pulsing, I would have made actual veins that grew and pulsed with the flow instaid of the spraycan deal you did
The mismatch of the girl and the forest are another concern, but that seems to have been addressed below.

DragonPunch responds:

Thank you for your review! ; )

I like Fairies and Trainzs!

DragonPunch responds:

Good for you! Oh wait...It's good for me too! : D

This is not bad. The girl is p. okay looking. The biggest flaw is the dissonance between the subject and her surroundings. You have a light source hitting the girl from the left, but a light source hitting the trees from the right, respectively. If you have two light sources both sides of each object should be lit to some degree. But it's one or the other. Also, avoid solid black backgrounds. The second thing is the coloring. In areas like the wings and hair, the color is muddy and doesn't define the forms well. The brush strokes look really sloppy in those areas. I would recommend using a harder brush with higher opacity. The shading on her body doesn't really express her form well. It's kinda flat looking, mostly due to lack of contrast and because you haven't shaded some of the contours in (like the knee). I would recommend experimenting with colors and shading more. I don't really get the blood spots, but it's not something worth rating down for.

DragonPunch responds:

Thanks for the review, and I'll try and learn some new shading techniques in the near future.
