So for Valentine's Day I wanted to draw something sad, so while listening to Sia - Elastic heart I came up with this piece.
I hope you all enjoy this, It was very sad to draw.

First, I'd like to say that the picture as a whole is beautiful to me. The concept of being heartbroken on vday is relatable too!
Vision-The vision of this piece is simple, yet done well. A heart-broken girl spends her vday in the tub crying about being alone, about to be drowned in a river which is deteriorating the dam. This was the vision I received from this artwork.
Originality- This piece is very original, meaning that I've never seen any concept like it. I like that you added your own sort of painterly style to the character and objects themselves. I just generally like looking at it and recognizing the different aspects of it.
Technique:In many of your previous deviations, I've come to realize that you kind of rely on a brush type to do grass, which I don't think its a bad thing because it does what you want it to do, but I'd like to see you draw grass in a different way. The river looks like you used a distorting tool to give it a flowing look, but once it reaches the wall you start to hand draw it, which in comparison to the river looks much more natural and less vector-like. This also goes for the water in the tub and the water overflowing from the side. The girl looks well painted and shaded, but the arm that's resting on the side of the tub doesn't seem to have a division between the forearm and upper arm, so studying anatomy would help that.
Impact: The impact it had on me was not very large, but in my future deviations I will be trying out techniques like the way you outlined the girl's skin, the shading, and the 'message in the sand' trick.

I hope that this critique was helpful and constructive and will be applied in future pieces! Until then, Happy Valentines Day!
