Prague Staircase 02

Critique by rudos
This work of art has a Escher like quality. Of course one always thinks of him seeing staircases. In your art he found his match, congratulations. At the top of the stairs we see the floor and the top in a double quality. This is a 'picture' with humor. That's rare when you have a staircase as a subject, but now the dictatorship of the form has been overcome by the lightness of a smile. Actually there is not much to say about it except some matters of taste. I wonder if a little bit of empty space at the very bottom of the picture would add a bit of breathing space over there.
I am not too fond of a big signature, especially when it adds a different atmosphere then the piece of art itself does; and it it is different in my opinion. I would prefer this picture without any letter at all. A letter is a different concept of communication. The words formed by these letters convey two different messages: 1. this work of art is mine 2. other work of mine can be found at a specific website. I don't need these messages to appreciate the art. When I appreciate it, I will find your name and website. It decreases the impact for me a bit. Perhaps a white frame with this message in the bottom of the frame would have worked too. Or a little symbol in the pic. But again, that's personal. I like the creativity and the quality very much.

Blue Thoughts

Critique by A-Wakefield
This is a very interesting image. Creative, and open for a wide array of interpretation.

Personally, I haven't seen a trend in images like this so I would say it is very original. :nod:

You did good with the blur in the background. A small amount in the middle of the image, and the large amount in the distance gave this image an awesome depth of field.

It is a beautifully mysterious work. I can't help but wonder what it is she's waiting for. However, it almost seems like something is missing, though I'm not quite sure what? I feel like it should be telling me a story, but there's no ending.

Great job overall though, excellent work! :hug:

Beauty Fight

Critique by Pentragon1990
The movement is nice captured and the expression looks wonderful (like you are in thought what your next move will be). The colours are very nice. They are bright and clear but don´t disturb from the cosplayer itself. I love that you can see the pattern and great fabric of the sleeves and the obi. It has a lot of detail that need to be shown!

The focus is on-spot and I like that it´s not only on the face but also on the ribbons on the front. The pose is dynamic but not exaggerated. You look like a very self-confident warrior that resting in itself.
Artwork waiting for a Critique:

Is the meaning of a work of art that which the artist meant it to be, or what it means to the viewer?
