My entry to the Flood the Portal Friday #3; theme: water.
Flood the Portal Friday (or The Friday Flood) is an art forum initiative thats held every first friday of the month, where different artists make a drawing based on that floods theme. Each piece of art should include the same thumbnail so that the art portal is actually "flooded". Theres a more important aspect of the flood, which is that every artist is supposed to review as much of the other flood submission as possible.
Keep an eye on the forum for the next flood (presumably new years eve)

It almost looks still motion, right before the explosion of the impact. Good job.

Thanks

Great work!

I really love the water effect. You did a great job at keeping it simplistic. The only thing that bugs me is that it doesn't seem to have much motion to it. It almost feels like he just ducked his head underwater instead of divebombed into it. Those bubbles are great though.

Nice! Has a beautiful modernist touch, especially in the water drops and bubble's shape, and it overall holds a reminiscence of S.XVIII japanese engravations. Colour choices are ok, giving it a lively feel. You should work on the cinetics: the bird is clearly diving at a high speed, but this is not conveyed through the drawing style, it is somewhat rigid, it lacks a bit of speed and movement. The yellow wing looks smaller than the blue one too.

The best thing about this art are the accurate, delicate details on the bird's feathers, and the smooth, chrome-ish water. Maybe the simplistic clear-lined style of the foreground (bird+water surface) contrasts excessively with the more abstract, multi tone background, but that's just a personal impression.

Overall, a beautiful piece of art. Keep them coming!

J-qb responds:

Thanks for the thorough review!
