I've been perusing your artwork and it is all incredible. I love the concept of combing still paintings with animation and music. You take the talent of the painter and combine it with the vision of a movie director.

If you had any desire to improve on this particular painting, I would suggest adding a soft air flow--enough to get the fine ends of her hair to move. I also noticed the reflection of the lights in the girl's eyes: brilliant, but you could create a whole new level of excellence just by reflecting the falling motion of the lights in the girl's eyes.

I will start of with the vision, and say that this is really great as far as vision goes. the detail put into the painting is amazing when I look at it compared to more drawings and paintings than I care to count. All of the colors fit very well, and I'm not sure if the green eyes were supposed to go with the color scheme, or contrast it, but either way they fit in well. As far as originality goes, there may be other poses similar to this, but to have both moving eyelids and a moving mouth is an original thing to me that adds that much more to the piece. The technique is advanced even further by the rising orbs of light and the shapes in the background, and the fact that there is composed music fit in along with the picture. The music adds a side to the emotion that I may not have gotten just looking at the picture. Overall the work put into this definitely paid off in my eyes (and ears).

This. Is. Breathtaking. Beautiful. Amazing. How else can I put it? You are a true genius when it comes to flash animation.
Of course, my favorite one is the one of Red Riding Hood, this, by far comes into a tie with that. And where did you come up with the music? I read in the other critique that you made it? ..... I am so, so , so very jealous of you right now.
What made you come up with the idea of Emily? She looks amazingly real. And, what is with all the sparkles? Is she in an enchanted wood? ..... That would be a great movie. And this is only one picture!! You, have an amazing artistic view of things This really should become a movie, even if it's just a short one. You should create the animations and stuff like that. It would be the movie of the year, that is for sure.

I'm sorry for this critique and my other one.... I'm REALLY new to this whole critique-ing thing. Please make more of these!

This picture is just so amazing! I cant believe you compose this music yourself, it goes well with the dark and neutral colors of this painting. The tone of the picture is absolutley wonderful! The colors go well together, and the picture itself looks so smooth. Many other artwoks have this same type of 'pose' (dont know what to call it), but because most all of them dont use animation or have composed music along with it, I decided to give you a 4-star rating for Originality.
The technique is glorius, most artists that paint like this have flaws spotted easily, but for Emily I spotted only 1 (that was hard to find, might I add) on her upperlip. The theme for this picture is wonderful. I feel like it's telling a story, the tone of the song along with Emily's expression. Not to offend you, (in case this does) but it kinda reminds me of SuckerPunch. The type of music sounds like it, and she's just so beautiful!
The animation isnt choppy like other pieces, and this pic doesnt take forever to load because of the animation. The shading is perfect, along with the flecks of light(?) that are flowing from the direction in which it's coming from.
I give you 5-stars on the Visuality because of the epic quality of this painting. You can see all the detail of everything in this picture. Even the most smallest things. Sometimes people leave those tiny things out and it bothers me. This and all your amazing pictues must've taken the longest time to make. You put all your hard work and dedication in them and it's plain to see.

I apologize for anything too out of place in this Critique, it's my first time writing one on dA. I admit I'm jealous of you, I could never do something this beautifully crafted. I give you props, Emily is possibly my favorite piece you've made. I'm glad I got the chance to Critique it. Hope this is enough constructive criticism for ya. I wish to see more in the future, keep on keepin' on!

ahh its so hard to pick out if its animated or not :O

I look at the picture, and I can just about feel her breathing, but when I stare at her hair or skin I can't see any movement... then I look away and catch the corner of her mouth move, or her hair stirring maybe a little bit...? Or is it playing tricks on me?

hahaha maybe yes maybe not =P
