I have seen you have asked for critiques on a number of images you have uploaded, so I’m going to focus on this piece, and expand to some comments that include your other works as well.

On the whole I think the execution of the series of images you have submitted is very distinctive and in my experience so far, unique. I think the individuality of execution you have created is important for any artist who wants to stand out and be noticed, and far harder to achieve than simply executing a variation on an established style. So if you were looking to make a distinctive mark then I think you have wholeheartedly achieved that goal. I have already commented that I thought this piece was a vector, and only upon opening a larger view did I realize it’s a photo.

Now focusing on this image (Celebration) I don’t feel it is the strongest of your series of images. It bears all the hallmarks of the other images in your series but I feel it lacks the same presence as some of the others in this style, in my opinion for 2 main reasons:

- Lighting
- Use of Detail within the composition

-Lighting
This particular image leans to a darker overall feel, and for me, I prefer the lighter images. It’s just my opinion though, and I expect other viewers will prefer this image over some of your others.
Your image of this street “Tokyo in Science Fiction” (www.deviantart.com/anthonypres…) handles the dynamic range of light and shadows better than “Celebration“ and one of the the joys of viewing this series of images is that because of the way the light and shade are handled, no details are lost, and for me, in “Celebration“ , there is too much dark space and lost detail.

-Use of detail within the composition
In terms of the composition, I would have preferred a little less overall detail, for example like in the image “Night Explore” www.deviantart.com/anthonypres… where you have a bit more foreground made from larger, more simple shapes, which works nicely with the detail of the people further down the street. In “Celebration” the composition loses overall impact because the details overwhelm the viewer. The red lantern across the street forms a key point of interest, but because this lantern is also quite detailed I don’t think the composition works as well as it could. I think the remedy would be to find a way to include more foreground detail which is the formula you have used in many of your other works.

Your piece titled “Wonder www.deviantart.com/anthonypres…, and the other works I mentioned (Night Explore and Tokyo in Science Fiction) really encapsulate what I am trying to say with regards to light and composition.

To sum up my critique, I’d like to say the style and technique you have developed is brilliant, and speaking as an artist myself, I guess at some point you may reach a conclusion with this style and move on to something new, but for now we will enjoy seeing each new Deviation you post in this series, they are a breath of fresh oriental air!

I love the colour on this, I thought it was vector art at first glance, it’s a very clever technique, well done!
