Kohaku River by DreamThestral Kohaku River by DreamThestral
It's my second fan art of studio Ghibli's movies :aww: 
The character is Haku from "Spirited Away" and belongs to Hayao Miyazaki, ofc.
Tell me what you think! Love

This is very nice! The only criticism I  have for it is that it could be more dynamic, the water splash feels underwhelming compared to the awe inspiring Haku. It feels more like he was flying over the water, and hit his tail against the water rather than bursting out from the surface of the river like your composition suggests. Also on closer inspection the last twist of his body before you get to the tail feels slightly thicker than it should be.
That is just my take on it and I immensely enjoyed this piece otherwise and it's really refreshing to see Ghibli with this more realistic art style. Btw Haku's expression is amazing :D

Thank you for your comment! When I was doing this piece I didn't know much about composition or perspective and also I was doing this for so long that in the end I was really exhausted. Water was the last thing I did and because of that I didn't pay as much attention to it as I should have Sweating a little... Anyway, now when I am looking at this work, I see a lot of mistakes I could improve but still I think is one of my best works so far :aww:
Thanks again!

I totally understand that :) Burn out is the arch nemesis of art & if anything take this piece as a lesson for managing your burn-out levels when you do a full fledged composition like this and break up your pieces in parts(i'm terrible at that..). I do really like this piece though and I feel like despite the fact that you can tell there's inconsistencies between the attention you gave the rest of the piece over the water... there's something so magical about the way it feels and your vision really came through despite those short comings. So that's something really special!

Your works are gorgeous and beating sunning! I thought this was a real photo before I clicked on the full image. Your great attention to lighting, shading and detail really makes this piece shine! For example the water is rippling according to how Haku's body has touched the water and there are still some droplets falling out of his lower body. You've also portrayed Haku as a beautiful and majestic dragon with the way he curves so delicately, it's a very interesting pose ^^ Anyway you've definitely earned a watch from me, though you deserve way more attention than this!
