Critique by TeamJacob101

I love how the whole crew appears to be mischievous and are right up on Mark.

I do like how you did the glowing eyes on the vast majority of them, and I absolutely love the look on Mark's face.

Quite honestly, I couldn't find anything truly wrong with this piece. Everything seemed to flow together and the only other thing that I can say is that this is an absolutely amazing piece of artwork. You did a truly amazing job. Keep it up!

Just a slight side note; I really love all of your art. It is really amazing. :D

Tseng and a captured Aeris in a helicopter

Critique by Thrasirshall

The background is perfect as pale colours since it makes the helicopter stand out more - and there's a smokey feel to it, likely because they're so high up on the plate.
I think my only critique is more of a curious one, as Barret is in his Advent Children look, but I actually really like it. I'm assuming it was used as reference, and it works really well!
Tseng's suit has some amazing details by the way, especially that his suit pants are obviously pressed! Also, all of their faces are perfect, and the helicopter blades are really well done.

So, Critique writing aye? I can do that... maybe.
Too make this easy to follow I'll just go down those lovely ratings over there.

First off Vision:
This is probably one of the scores I changed the most. On my first look I was unsure of how I felt about the picture. It seemed faded, almost blurred to the point of seeming non-existence. Whenever I look at this I can't seem to focus on what makes it so good. Everything seems to jump out when I'm not looking at it and this is what makes it amazing.

Nothing about the picture distracts, in fact it does the opposite. So much of the picture draws the eye that you find yourself staring at it, looking for that little detail you missed. Truly stunning. The whole picture paints a story which each little detail expands on and that is what true vision in artwork should do. In this you achieved perfection.

Onto Originality:
This score is not as high as it could be due to the amount of pictures depicting the four princesses. However the specific way in which you laid it out, the frozen crystals hiding the view of the princess originally caught my eye and this brought a new flair that I wasn't expecting. The way Twilight seems to be underwater (perhaps drowning in doubt?) makes it even more interesting. Despite not hitting 5/5 of these it is merely because the base of the picture is one I see often. It in no way deducts from the beauty of the piece.

Technique now:
What can I say here? The lighting effects are beautiful. The movement of the whole piece is captivating and the way the colours of the crystals and the(water?) blend is absolutely stunning. I'd go on and on about how amazing this is but I wont waste your time. Technique is 6/5, absolutely perfect.

And Finally Impact:
This received the lowest score of the group because I personally judge Impact on the initial feeling the picture inspires upon me at first glance. And the way you blended all the different aspects of the picture together was so flawless that I almost missed the true beauty of this picture. The soft tones and light colours almost caused me to skip this picture however this actually makes the picture all the more beautiful in that it doesn't hit the viewer with something bold and harsh straight away. Impact being low is not a reflection of the picture being bad, merely a show of the attention required to find its true beauty.

Overview:
A gorgeous piece, filled with emotion and beauty. Subtle and graceful but lacking punch. This piece requires the viewer to search for the nuances which make up the artwork but once they are found it reveals how amazing it is.
10/10 for overall artwork. No flaws found in such a piece.
