I absolutely love the flow you have created with the dashed lines.
It almost suggests the unstable nature of the air thermals.

You have done an excellent job with contour lines and varying thicknesses to create the textures and shadows of your piece.
Your composition choice works having lighter tones along the horizon while the ground and clouds exude deeper tones.
If you were to cut the work in half horizontally, the bottom half is comprised of simple shading and the upper half is very detailed.
This choice focuses the eye very well to the couple in the mid area.

This resonated personally with me because it was reminiscence of where I grew up and the unable air from that climate.
It has an unstable nature to it though, as I mentioned before, it all flows together wonderfully.
It has that free spirit sort of feel.

This caught my eye the minute I saw it. It's so intricate and so detailed, I could stare at it for hours without getting tired.

The thing I particually love is how the clouds are complexly shaded, with interesting shapes and are very pleasing to the eye, but the ground is comparitively simple. It brings a lot more attention to the two figures, which I think really make the piece.

This piece seems to show the power of the weather, how humans are so small and insignificant compared to the force of nature.

Personally I don't know how you do this technique, but I think you must be very very skilled to make it as perfect as this.

It"s really looking gorgeous, the idea of the fingerprints is really nice and original. I love the concept too, the rain's coming and the two people running. I really think it's a wonderful art piece, like all your art. I find that your art is something really special, I love how you can make any scene clear with a few lines and colors, it's something special that not so many people have. When I saw this drawing I was like 'wow, it's really original and special', so I wrote this critique to tell you what I think about it in detail. Really, keep drawing like this and improving yourself <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Such grandeur is as expected. The background works well with the fingerprint style. With each ridge a sense of motion is created. Like other artwork before, this one is just as original. As the young couple run, there is a sense of excitement and the carefree joy of youth. In drawing their silhouettes, the artist adds ambiguity. Who are these young lovers? or are they just friends? Yet, does it matter who they are; moreover, the art is more about their emotion. What are they running away from or towards? So many questions can be drawn about this piece. The time and effort taken in this drawing must have been extensive: taking patience in order to execute the precise details of the fingerprint style. What is amazing is the style itself. The fingerprints can have a wide range of meaning; such as, a sense of life and individual personality in the artwork. Or perhaps the fingerprint style represents the artist's own hands which have created his work. Either way, the style is impressive and unique. Overall, the tale of two loves continues to be a favorite piece.

Fingerprints to show you how to print an art and show it to people to interest them too
Rainfalls makes you remember some people sometimes and when it stops it becomes rainbows everywhere.

Talk to rainfalls and have a long walk you will discover that your heart leads you to your destiny and never fear of any lightning or storms because you have a heart as strong as an lions and horses.

The orginality or the art shows you courage and hope to the future and having the colours of black and white make it helpful,respectful and even some brave words to say.

I am in love with your work, It always amaze me to see such talent. I do not paint or draw personally, but I did try.
Your result are astonishing.

I can't rate the technique, I do not know better, but I do not want to gave nothing because obviously you got some of it.

Originality is for the fingerprint effect, but the image itself is nothing original. But I really like the impact of your painting. I will browse more and will like more. I will watch you going and growing.

Continue like this, I will follow you for sure.

Contrast is always an important element in art, especially with black and white artworks. I think you have created a really good contrast in this piece, especially the decision to silhouette your main subjects. That, against the details present in the clouds, make for a good balance. The fingerprint technique, that you have clearly mastered, is probably the element that really brings it out. Overall I would say it is one of your more simpler pieces, the subject matter is romantically typical, though regardless you have breathed life into it. Recreating this timeless imagery in your own style is, in itself, a real art. Bravo!

The hardest critiques are written about pieces that you really enjoy.

There are almost two separate compositions here; one of the clouds and the people running, the second of the mark making, the fingerprints.

The people running gives a sense of wanting. Having them over halfway over the composition gives a feeling of freedom and hope a journey almost complete. The details in the cloud give a feeling of impending, the excellent use of greyscale lending to this feeling.

The mark making at times can be a little much, as if taking overt the composition but it adds to the feeling of impending and hope that I get overall. Being so close to too much is what makes it very successful.

Overall this is a very completed piece and looks awesome! Congratulations on an excellent piece

This is a very great drawing indeed. the use of shadows, dark and light values are amazing. Especialy the clouds above with the people down below. A very great piece of work indeed!, but anyway back to what I was saying I just don't exactly have many words to describe this due to how well you used your medium in this fantasticly drawn picture, along with the other drawings you do it fits in very well with your style of art. I realy like this picture a lot so much that it has left me speechless for what you have bestowed upon me.

There isn't much else to say, except wow. All of your work is wonderful. Please, keep it up.

It's amazing that you can do this with fingerprints.

I would like to ask, how much time does this take for you to do?
Honestly, I don't think I could ever do this, but even so, it seems like it would take forever...
And, do you ever come across a mistake? I don't see any flaws in this, at all.

Really, this is awe inspiring work.

Well, that's all I would have to say. Wonderful work. I guess you have the touch, pun not intended.-

Sur un chef-d'œuvre pareil, difficile d'être objectif. Néanmoins je vais essayer de l'être.

Ce qui me plait ici :
- l'écrasante lourdeur du ciel qui en plus d'être sombre et menaçant, occupe la majeure partie de l'image faisant paraître les deux personnages comme fragiles et dépassés par les éléments.
- le trait et ses effets de contraste noir et blanc qui donnent un relief incroyable au dessin.
- la course des deux personnages tentant d'échapper à la pluie
- l'effet "fingerprints", sont-ce de vrais empreintes ? Je n'arrive pas à le savoir.

Pas de point négatif, je me pose juste la question de savoir, pleut-il ou pas encore dans l'image ? Selon le titre il semblerait que oui.

hello!
I unfortunately am not a professional artist, and so I don't know if my criticism is right or wrong, but I'll be happy to help you. I think the technique is really amazing and resembles that of Van Gogh, especially in the details of the sky and air.
overall the picture is harmonious and it seems to come from a travel diary.
I think it's really cool that an artist uses these techniques so fascinating and so elaborate, that young people rarely use. I'd love to have your talent! So I would like to wish you good luck for your wonderfoul works!
