This is really amazing!

Firstly, you chose great colours. Yellow on blue, the greens and yellows of the ground below...

And you're very creative and original. A flying whale? Awesome.

You also have definitely put a lot of detail in, and it makes all the difference. Highlights, shading, the intricacy of the colour palette, clouds... Very well done!

The only thing that caught my eye as a little odd is your person's right hand. Obviously, I'm not you, so I don't know if you meant to do this, but it looks kind of like the thumb part of the hand is on top, which would be a super awkward way to hold a brush.

But overall, you did a wonderful job with this piece! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Thankyou so much! I definitely need to work on hands, such hard figures to draw. But thanks for the critique!

No problem!  Yeah, hands are SUPER difficult.  I end up using tentacles instead half the time XD

This is absolutely stunning.

Not only is it beautiful in technique, and color choice, but the mood it sets, as well as the inspiration it sparks makes this piece as close to perfection as anyone may get, in my opinion.

This piece is open enough to be interpreted in many ways depending on who's looking at it, but it still takes direction, in guiding the viewer to a certain theme.

There are many other things you could have drawn to try and get the same effect, but the fact that you chose a whale of all animals, or, the fact that it's a little girl on that whale, or perhaps any other choices you made, really gives us a good taste of your brilliance.
