Valentine Lips

Critique by librarydweller95

your lines are very crisp! the high contrast really helps this male a big impact! I really like this because of the use of contrast and shape. I think that this is really well done. your colours don't bleed into each other. everything is very defined and distinct. you are clearly very talented and very patient. it certainly shows in your work. it must be hard to be so precise and talented. the only constructive criticism i have is that i don't like that it appears like some of the red lipstick bled onto your teeth. it's mildly distracting from the whole piece. but overall, it is very well executed and i am really impressed.

Digital Painting: Where Our Wings Take Us

Critique by CarmineKanzer

The first element that comes to the eye is the use of colors. Bright red and blue that clash together, along with the texture giving a neat impression of fire and water dancing. The contrast of orange and blue on the blue macaw produces a feeling of harmony as well.
The glare you depict both birds with may seem, indeed, quite creepy. The subtle feather lines above their eyes gives them an angry expression that could at first appear unsettling, but if one looks with enough imagination, the birds looking at something outside of our point of view, appear to be determined. Ready to take their flight. Hence a suggestion of why this unusual pose rather than another: a last comforting accolade before some great act, as suggested by the title?
As for the technique, the effect of crumpled paper is nicely done, and gives off the impression of a collage rather than a drawing. Quite an usual but imaginative way to paint birds, which are usually associated with fluffy feathers and softness, rather than harsh-looking material.

Bref, this painting has so many unusual elements in both technique and topic, and thus earns points in imagination, although some might even relate it to "horror art" due to the uncomfortable-looking glare of the birds and the confusing background.

I was instantly memorised by this masterpiece when I saw it come up on daily deviations. I really love the forlorn expression on the mermaid's face, as if she currently contemplating her life at the moment or currently tired of it (I say tired because her hair is sprawled out and messy from maybe running from something? or swimming in this case >.<. I get a sense of lukewarm feelings here probably because she is in the the bathtub by herself whilst surrounded by the warm glows of the candles, like she's trying to enjoy her own company but she can't because whatever is bothering her is taking time away from her to relax. You did an excellent job of how the light reflects everywhere from the candles, especially on the mermaid's face, hair and hands and how the light itself emits from the candle. And well done on catching the right tones for the water, which is quite difficult to do. Overall, a truly beautiful but bittersweet piece. :love:
