I really think that you are joking with us by requesting critiques, but I’m going to write it anyway.

It took me a few minutes to get something to write about, the work is really impressive, the color is just awesome, the techniques, the transparencies, the lights, the shadows, the body shape, all of that fit with the word spectacular.

So, why am I writing this? Cus you asked for, I guess you want us to find the details you can improve. First, if it wasn’t because of the title “Ascension Miku” I wouldn’t care about the face details, but it is, and I think it is not exactly alike Miku, but it is not something to worry about cus this is fan art <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Something else would be the background, Miku is awesome, the background is just… background, but it is not something that really matters, because the main art is she, so, again, I think you tried to joke us by requesting this, this work is near of perfect.

The 4.5 scores are because of the things i pointed. That's all, i apologize if i made some mistakes, English is not my mother language

I agree with you for the background being bare on the left, yet on the light its as though light is following her. From my view its almost as she's kinda spreading the light so it makes sense to be dull and boring up until she gets there. *just point of view * xP

WOW!! I'm writing a critique on Eddie-san's artwork!!!!! *VERY EXCITED*
Okay, all the anxiety and the feeling of awesomeness aside, lemme put on the glasses and enable the critique mode. I'll be adding a few things to the comment i posted.

What Meets The Eye: The first thing that meets the eye in this piece is the color Blue. Monochrome paintings generally give out grim vibes but Blue is exceptionally an awesome base color for anything. And this just proves how much experimental the color is. the right tones and shades at the right places have given this piece a "Trance" like feeling.

The Pose: Very original and very dynamic. Her face (closed eyes and slightly lifted upwards) and her pose takes you into the serenity she's experiencing. and all those blue circles and details look like she's inside the world of electro-pop music. Your specialty is the pin light. It makes your characters glow in the glow of awesomeness. the boke in the background adds to the calm and pure effect.

Now, Vision: Acc. to me, vision is what the artists sees of his piece in his mind. What he visions before executing the art work. So, If i read the description and few of the comments you replied to correctly, you wanted to make Miku look angelic in cyborg/android form.
Yes, she does look like she belongs to the sci-fi world due to the cyborgish bone structure on arms and thighs. and due to her pose alone, she looks angelic. To me, teh halo at first was thought to be just another ring. (sorry) and teh blue rings and teh super cool equips adds to the sci-fi effect. So all put together, i saw This version of Miku as a cyber species but not a "high level" cybetronic specie. That's why i gave vision a 4 star. Because unfortunately,your vision wasn't quite delivered.

Originality Oh you're one of teh very few deviants who draw fan art so originally. It's like you own Miku and you can make her do anything you want. The Pose, the outfit, the concept, hell even the technique is VERY original! it's seriously like your version of Miku. And that says something.

Technique: Need i say anything about that? skill wise, this is a master piece. I loved how you did her hair. The glow is something you get like you own it. Infact i think you own the pin-light concept. Digital art is your doorway of voicing your thoughts and you sir have incredible skill and mind blowing technique.

Impact Just sheer awesomeness! I see purity in this, sheer purity unlike your other works with overflow with sexiness. Anyone who looks at this piece of art, will have their eyes pop out. And that is called making an impact.

p.s: i thought i'd suggest this for a DD, but i changed my mind. You can do something much bigger than this. More, original and more creative.I know the next piece you draw is gonna be something very new and awesome and that's why, I'm waiting to suggest you a DD.

This is now my new Screen
The request is still there, so here I go:
I'm going to leave the praise out of this because its obvious how awesome the piece is and instead concentrate on the things that make me cringe:

1) Her lips look as if she had a failed botox treatment. It may work in the shallow world of fame and wealth, but here I think it really cheapens the character.

2) The eyes; it seems as if she is trying to keep them shut but at the same time doesn't really want to (or know how to), like when someone tells you to close your eyes and you know they are going to do something you don't like, like lick your face or something.

These two combined make the face look very unnatural and quite frankly, unappealing compared to the rest of her.

3) The shading on the piece of metal (or plastic) that's on her side just next to the boob make it look as it the breast continued all the way to the back. The general shading of the picture is not that good - it's hard to say where light is coming and where it is not.

By the time I read "Zone of the Enders", I was sold.

Beautiful. I suggest putting more shading on the elbows. might be mechanical but it looks unnaturally out of place without the contrast of joints

I'm not a huge Miku fan, but good lord, this is amazing.
This would've taken me multiple lives to complete, and it still wouldn't be anywhere near how this looks.
Super props to you, Mr. Shinjuku.
Seriously, amazing work. The details are beyond amazing.
