Vision: Very realistic and yet creative.
Original: I have seen nothing like this, the music is very good.
Technique: It has very good line and blurriness where it needs it. All the colors match making the art even better. The music fits well.
Impact: I have read the comments and it seems I am not the only one who thinks this is AMAZING work. The music brings dramatic affect while the clothes on the girl make it very mythical/fantasy like. The staff is just plain cool.

In total: I would rate this a 98/100 percent some of the best animating/drawing I have seen. Even the name fits!

An extremely effective use of animation blended with storm effects and music which all work together seemlessly. I cannot find anything wrong here even to say what could be improved as I don't see anything which could be made any better than this. I especially enjoyed all the items which seem to be blown about by the wind as great attention to the small details are revealed which present a greater vision for detail than many would do. But it's not overwhelmed by the effects either which gives it a natural atmosphere. I would love to see this used as a tutorial to teach others how to create such wonderful work.

I...can't really describe this in words alone. It's...amazing! Is all I can say. I love the music, as well. It's brilliant how most of the body is moving, and the background too...! It seems as if she is in a tornado of kinds. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I can't really find any faults with this picture, honestly, you've done such an amazing job. I tend to write novels, and I could most certainly portray this character as a wonderful antagonist! Some sort of air god or something. Heheh.

Maybe you could make the pieces of debris in the background move a tad bit more slowly? And maybe with the music, you could give the sound of wind whipping. It would give the scene a whole new air of realism. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

All in all, wonderful work! So dark and kind of scary...love it! Keep up the good work, I always look forward to your new pieces. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>

Once again, I am amazed at your artwork. You can really see her breathing. That is pretty cool to me, considering i am NOT an artist. (I make up for it in writing, that's why I'm still here) Ho you drew her made her look like she was.... was the warrior of the Earth. Like she was standing on clouds, waiting for the world to need her help. And I think they need it considering the gloominess of the picture. The little things floating in the air look weightless. This piece is defiantly one of my favorites, along with all your other pieces.

Just... one thing I am seeing that doesn't fit. When I read the other critiques, Clutch45 is right. If you make the clouds move, you would make it even MORE realistic and even MORE amazing than it is now.

Other than that, my jaw was hitting the floor. The music and animations are amazing. Great job.

Really loved the work!
As well ill take from u some minutes xD
That picture looks mysterious(GREAT), the work with the song embed (AMAZING - soo original), rarely see people using animation as well these days, but like our Deviants said before, that image its static, unique problem with that one, I probably can´t say nothing cause im not on your level <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/r/r…" width="15" height="15" alt="=P" title="=P (Razz)"/>
im just been sincere after all...
I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we really appreciate your work;
Anyway I wish you could change the world with your amazing art.
Wish someday i can make great pictures like you
cya! ^^

First: My English is very bad, and I can explain better in my language. OK?

Para empezar, creo que la gente tiende a puntuar excesivamente bien. 5 estrellas es la máxima puntuación, lo que significa que es perfecto, y no creo que todas las obras de arte sean perfectas.

Empezaré por lo mejor de tu obra. El Impacto y la técnica.

Tengo que reconocer, que lo primero que pensé ha sido un gran "wow". Me ha sorprendido mucho la fuerza de desprende la obra. El viento, la música, los rayos, la oscuridad y el misterio están muy bien unidos.

La técnica también es muy buena, la combinación de Photoshop, Flash y música es impresionante. Has conseguido unirlas perfectamente. Pero no te doy 5 estrellas porque la chica está quieta. Si tuviera más movimiento, sería espectacular.

Ahora lo "peor" de tu obra. La Visión y la Originalidad.

Hay que admitir que ésta escena se ha repetido en multitud de ocasiones (una persona misteriosa, bajo una tormenta ocultando su rostro). Pero has conseguido darle fuerza gracias a la animación y la música. Hay que admitir, que si sólo fuera una imagen estática, no habría sido un Daily Deviaton.

Por último, la Visión. En general, es muy impresionante, pero hay un poco de "trampa" al dibujar a una persona quieta, mirando al frente.

Como conclusión, diré que ésta obra tiene todo el derecho de pertenecer al selecto grupo de las Daily Deviaton. Los efectos y la animación de la tormenta son realmente impresionantes. Y la música es un complemento perfecto.

PS: Sorry for writing in spanish, but I explain better in my mother languaje. ¡Fantastic piece, direct to my favs!

Gracias por la crítica, la originalidad no es realmente mi fuerte, estoy empnhando para crear una técnica diferente y creo que estoy recibiendo.

OH my GOODNESS! THIS is magnificent. I can't believe the intricacy of it! you can see her breathe, and it affects her whole body as it should, the movements of all the smaller scraps in the air is PERFECT. They truly look very weightless compared to the strength of the wind, their movement is just how it should be.
The character's design is also very nicely done! The small details aren't lost to the animation, in fact, they're enhanced by it! I love the way the wind even rustles the fur of her collar!

The only thing I would consider would be to work on the clouds a bit. The lighting on them is GREAT, I love the flashes of light behind them, but what sticks out about them to me is that they never move. Though I do understand that this would probably require a lot more work on this piece, I think it would make a very noticeable difference, adding even more to the realism!
Especially with wind this strong, the clouds should really be moving!

Beyond that one stipulation, I'm truly BLOWN AWAY by this piece of amazing art!
Er... Pun NOT intended, though I'll take it where I can GET it!

Wow! You've done it again Michel, this is just so incrdeible! Everything about this is just beyond imagination! I love all your works, but I can see that you've improved too!
I really love this work, because this time, you've really gotten some movement into it! You can really see that she's standing in the middle of a storm, and you can easily see which direction the wind is blowing. The dust, and the little pieces of whateveritis really gives a great effect! It makes the artwork look more alive, you know what I mean right?
Also, you have a great sense of detail! Nearly nothing in this work stands still! It's filled with action and music matches perfectly! What I mean by that is, the music is really a part of the artwork, not just something that makes it a bit more interesting. That goes for all your music actually.

But, this is a qrituqie, and I know you get a lot of 'Wow!'s and 'Incredible!'s, but even though all your art seems to be as perfect as can be, there's always space for improvement :'-) As we all know, that's the rule for every artist!
Okay, well the picture looks very realistic, and it is! But, I'd like to point out a few things that maybe is a bit unrealistic;
For someone who's standing in the middle of a storm or hurricane, whatever it is, she's standing very still? I mean, she must really have incredible balance to be standing like that! Unless she's supposed to be walking, I think her legs would be a little more spread, for the sake of balance, if you know what I mean, hehe ;'-) But, I'm not demanding you to change or anything! Not at all! I'm just pointing it out!
Also the clouds is not moving? In any storm in real life, the clouds would move in the direction of the wind, but these clouds is just not moving. It's a very small detail but, you know, I'm just pointing it out :'-) Still, I'm not saying that I want you to change it, but keep these things in mind as you create your future artworks!

But with that said, I'm once again going to praise you for your absolutely stunning piece of art! Keep it up, and I'm already excited to see the next ;'-)

Strong and reality composition, very perfect lines her body give a sense of participation in this picture. This song it's realization action and original this part. This colors, rain and thunderstorm frighten and attract originality and perfection. Her darkness and beauty give horror dream. Interesting hurricane near she and breathing it's great work and beauty intensive show public information about side this fantastic and reality woman. Thx author this animation in flash for scary and interesting idea, for new type and horror accompaniment sonds. I hope to see new work from you in next time! This deviation need only 5 rate! Not minimum <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)"/>

Beautiful,beautiful music,and beautiful painting,the textures are amazing and the animation is just INCREDIBLE.The armor of the character fits very well,you can also notice the way she breaths! The stormy atmosphere makes the animation looks spooky,like the character,the shadings are very well added and the body is very well detailed,no errors on the anatomy makes this work even more surprising! I have to say that words can´t describe how amazing this work is,flawless maybe? Taking a look to the load screen,the leaves flying through it were very great animated too <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>.The background is dark and misterious,the clouds and that black fog are just terrific and scary on an artistic way,everybody should love this work!! Beautiful!!!! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="26" height="17" alt=":love:" title="Love"/>
