This piece is amazing as always. Well done on the idea of the ice cave. I can't draw as well as you, but I'd like to point out a few things.

I liked your vision for this piece. It was really good from the point of view of where you began it from. My one and only complaint is the fact that what feels to be the main attraction to it, the brightly lit part of the cave, was too far away to get anything out if it. I think that vision from our point of view also lacked due to the fact that the colors began to get muddled and unclear on the left side. It felt like I was looking at two completely different pieces, one abstract drawing style, and one realistic. (If you wonder what I mean by abstract, I'll direct your attention to the short film 'Feast')

The originality is very good. It feels like this could be any type of location. I like how the yellow part in the back is own little separate entity. I'm glad this doesn't require any previous knowledge or access understanding to view it.

I was really disappointed with the technique this time. Don't get me wrong, I like all kinds of artwork forms; but it feels, from initial eye draw, like a realism piece. Where you try to replicate it as if it were real life. However, with a quick glance over the rest of the piece you can see that's just not the case. The ice crystals are really what hits you hardest. It feels like you put only a bit of effort into them.

For Impact, honestly, the whole piece comes off as a half finished piece of work. At first glance, it seems like a perfectly normal painted piece, but anything beyond a glance will show you that it just doesn't sit right. You've got a great eye for detail, with the stalagmites, the reflections on the water, and the broken pieces of ice. I'll bump you up a whole star for that. I just think it's incomplete.

In conclusion, I'd say that this work is having trouble finding where it's supposed to be. You should either make the yellow area a bit more blocky to fit the rest of the piece, or touch up on the rest of the piece. I do want to end by saying that I'm a huge fan of your work and that you are much more skilled than I am. I just feel like you could've done a better job on this one.

Thanks for the honesty. I'm just glad to see that you read my critique. Great work as always though, especially for a sketch.

These pillars are so structural and architectural. I love the way they seem to grow out of the pool of liquid. They have an organic flow to them that can be really difficult to combine with complex forms while keeping readability. The light emanating from what seems to be the center chamber adds drama and a sense of liveliness to the image. Like, its alive or populated by an anonymous something. What really stands out is how you've rendered the textures out and given it this lively metallic glow. I half expect some mechanical machine to jump out at me. That there are no relatable objects, or live characters in the scene is a shame. They perhaps could increase the shots sense of dynamism.

This is the first time I'm going to do a critique of drawing a background without a character, so I hope to do well. Everything in this drawing is perfect: The coloring technique, the shading and lights in some areas, and of course, the background; like the rocks, the light in the cave, practically the whole background is perfect.

I also loved the way you did the background, giving a dark touch.

No comment, because everything is absolutely perfect in this drawing. You deserve much credit for having been able to do this drawing, which is perfect. Keep the good work.

Dude this is the best art and i mean it
please tell me there will be more
because this.......this is art
because this is what our ice caves would look like if we lived there
as beautiful and creative and well designed like this
the way you used the contrast of light to dark is flawless and i like how you put some sort of light pillar there just to give the dark a bit more of a warming touch
i love the way the background on the left is faded like there is a cold mist in a distance

Epic. I love your work. However it doesn't really look like ice.... I suppose this isn't entirely necessary in the design stage.
