My Bio
Not much to say, I'm 23 years old, live in Quito, Ecuador. I never attended art school and that's my biggest regret. I study medicine but my love for art has its roots deep in me. I draw on my free time, and when I'm supposed to be working. Those that know me know there are many facades within me, but in general I'm like a wolfmother to my few friends and like a lurking viper to my enemies. To the rest I'm like a crow or a vulture, just sitting around waiting and observing. Other than drawing I like to write, compose, photograph, play (videogames, board games and rpg's), and read. Not much more to be said I guess, you're free to ask anything you want to know (I am free to deny the answer as well if I see fit haha)

Well, I must say I don't agree with all of the review, but do not think it unfair so I won't hide it either.
First of all, thank you for taking your time to critique.
Regarding the river, it does not take a protagonic role in the drawing, since it's character is a flat one. What I mean is that it's presence is only there to subtly enhance the image of the protagonist (the angel) as being a divine creature lingering among a natural or rural scenario. It is true that you can barely see it, but then again, it was not meant to be seen at first glance (it should be a contextual image rather than a true element).
Regarding the shading and more technical aspects, I have nothing to say. I am relatively new at more real looking pics and using models as well, models. Soo, I expect I will get better with time ^^
Thanks again for the thorough thoughts!

Well thanks a lot for the complete critique. Every technical point is fair, and I do reckon this could use a bit more of work, I might consider some extra touches. Also consider my drawing time is limited, though this is no excuse. The child's position is my only disagreement since I wanted the pic to show the child as a natural form while having the female forces as symbolic, thus more conceptual, symmetric, and less natural. Since the child's pose is organic, I cannot divide him by two exact halves, nor would i want to since we are never in true balance. I am glad you understood the "anima" part, makes the use of symbols more rewarding.
Anyhow, thanks again for the great commentary! Hopefully I will improve with time ;)

Wow, I cannot believe someone saw this after all this time haha, much less take the time to review it! I am quite grateful for the fair review, and really appreciate you took your time in doing so. I think all of your points are valid, specially considering that I did not know much anatomy back then. If anything, you might have flattered me a bit haha, I was expecting a bit of a harsher review. Anyway, I think you have inspired me to redo this, in honor of my good old Bluespawn Godslayer miniature that got stolen 3 years ago ;-;
Again, thank you for your time and the nice critique!

Oh man oh man, I can't beleive someone actually saw this after all these years! I actually drew this 5 years ago. The program used was photoshop, and it was done in my psychology class' binder haha. Anyway, regarding the concept, it is a really personal matter (never high though haha, I don't do drugs, never have). I woudln't call it a trauma right away but I have been through pretty rough moments in my life. I'm not going to go too personal here in the internet though haha.
The painting speaks for itself to me and it is a bit hard to see because it brings forth some things. Anyway, thanks for the critique :D
Double Edge
Looks great! Keep it up
