Ok, this is worth a critique. I can't believe how awesome you are at this stuff. I've always been drawn to art that focused on lips, but you took two awesome things, combined them, and made it awesome. Whatever you do, never stop doing this because it's breath taking and awesome. The close up factor really compliments the detail in your work. I would've given you 9 or 10 stars for impact if I could've. Tim Burton would definitely be a good theme for you to run with in more works, but all your stuff is awesome. Thanks for the cool stuff. ^_^

This is beautiful...it truly is. it must have taken ages for it to be so perfect. I love how the colors merge into each other softly as well it's a great effect that must of taken some precision.
I adore the orange in the picture and the gems as well. I think everything about this is just magical and i'd love to have this on my lips for Halloween or something! It's just beautiful. Really this is amazing and you should be very proud of yourself for creating such beauty. Really well done. Id say a lot more but i'd be rambling on.
There is no negative criticism that i have to add for this because it really does look like the famous hill in TNBC and i love the big moon behind it and the night sky <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> beautiful. It's one of my favourites.

Vision: I knew what this was as soon as I saw it. I think everyone, Burton/Nightmare fan or not, knows what this is. You executed the scene so clearly, so efficiently, and I will admit I am jealous for it. Kudos to you!

Originality: There is no shortage of Nightmare Before Christmas work out there. I think everyone has at least thought of drawing something for it, and many of them actually go through with it. I would have given 1.5 stars in this category ('critique' ≠ 'ego stroking' after all) were it not for the fact that this is on a pair of lips. Those are lips, and I just cannot get over that. Can we all please take a moment to appreciate that? Lips, for heaven's sake!

Technique: I was in a stage makeup class a few years back, so I know how hard precise details on skin can be. I did some scale work for the Animals and Furries chapter - never again. Trying to get those thread-thin lines is almost impossible, so I have nothing but respect for that perfect curl on the hill. I can still see a bead of white in the tightest circle. *insert withering envy here* Either you have the steadiest hands and the most patience in the world, or God hath blessed thine fingers. Maybe both. Also, those small gemstones as pumpkins? Beautiful touch.

Impact: I tend not to look at DeviantArt's front page. I just click immediately into my messages and snort at whatever is there, like, "I'll look at you later. If you drew something relevant to my interests." But I caught this out of the corner of my eye and immediately went back a page to fave it. I needed this in my favorites, and I want it to be in everyone else's as well - if not for the theme, then for the work that went into it. Does that give you a rough idea of the impact it had on me?

Overall, this is wonderful. Just...wonderful.

I only just recently saw the movie "Nightmare Before Christmas" with a friend of mine. She insisted that I watch it with her. I instantly fell in love with it, and this work instantly caught my eye. The hints of orange in the corner and the orange sequins keep to the Halloween theme, and the hill is so perfectly crafted, I can practically see Skeleton Jack singing on top of it. The sparkles on the upper lip also keep true to the snow in the cemetery, adding yet another touch of realism. I would even go so far as to say that the scene from the film jumped out of the movie and onto your lips. This is amazing work and very creative. It is a very different medium from what I'm used to, and yet it is so unique and perfect. The human face as a canvas is a concept more people should look into.

First critique, please bear with me.. ^ ^;

Of course, the theme is The Nightmare before Christmas.
Here, you have made the well known hill/cliff/etc. The colours stand out on the pale skin, but my eyes seem to be drawing back to the dark colours on the side of your lips. The small gems you applied on is a nice and unique touch.
I have seen The Nightmare before Christmas drawings, tattoos, dolls, pottery but not lips! Indeed that is a creative idea. I can't think of a better one. A question, what else could you have drawn instead of the hill?
Very smooth and clean. I liked how you did the moon, it seems you blended a bit with the dark blue and white. I also like the addition of the orange, but I'm not sure what it is.. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/c/c…" width="15" height="30" alt=":?" title=":? (Confused)"/>

Thank you for your wonderful critique.
The orange was a simple touch that represents halloween and completes the "pumpkins" of the hill.:aww:

This is amazing. I love how everything blends so well, yet all stands out. The colour choice is perfect. I just love it. I don't think there's anything I can say against it. The Nightmare Before Christmas has always been one of my favourite movies, and I love the way you've incorperated the hill into this piece of art. I have to say: The art you did with the night sky, and the moon? That one really got me. This one just proved to me how creative and beautiful your art is, not that I didn't believe it before. Amazing job, no doubt. Can't wait to see more.
