It's cute and good.

Then again, what by Otakuap isn't?

Also the title is funny.


That's all. Wait, a 100 word minimum?! Shit, alright, I'll go on I suppose. The snow looks really cool. And I like the clouds back there a lot. And the fact that Dash's hair is shiny as fuck.

I guess my favorite part if her eyes though. They're really cute (once again, what by Otakuap isn't?) and I just love that look, like "Shit. I crashed."


Oh boy and did she crash. If I'm seeing that correctly her fall trail starts on the farthest hill back there. Ouch.

What can I say about this artistic piece...
Rest assured, I can find NOTHING bad with it!
The little details are done VERY well. The overall approach to this work, and how it was executed, was done to perfection. The shading gives a feel of realism, while still leaving the artistic side of a persons soul feeling fulfilled.

And the look on Dash's face is simply priceless, adding the comedic touch that truly made me smile.

The artist has achieved a level of perfection with this work (in my eyes, at least) that I dream of obtaining with my fanfiction writing.

Overall, I have to give it a full 20/20 stars. To me, it is just that good.

It really would have happened eventually.

Te idea and execution are quite excellent. I have considerable love for her composition and expression. It's the kind of face that is a mix of 'that could have gone better' and 'did that just happen?'

The mounds and upturned snow help reinforce the notion of a crash. On the topic of the mounds, the shading and arrangements are commendable. I also have particular love for the clouds. They have a real fluffy and thick feel, as should be expected during winter.

As for the criticism, some of the snow on her head seem unnaturally placed, particular the part of the pile near her top forelock. Also, the forest and tree directly behind Dashie, how the hell did the bottoms collect snow?

Snow can drift. That is how I thought of it. As for the snow on top of her head, it looks perfect to my eyes.
Other than those two things, I am in agreeance with you.

I suppose. I guess it's more personal taste that them being too white without any greenery at all seems disturbing.

As for the one on top of her head, the depth looks off. The top forelock is, logically, somewhere near the crown of her head. If it's exposed like that and there is that much snow still on her head; exactly what is it sitting on? Because that would just leave about as much surface area as 1/4 of a ball.

Edit the picture with troll face on the tree......if you mind :/
otakuap's avatar
yeah sorry to say but no, i dont really like my stuff edited.
besides i don't think it would make much sense for the tree to have a troll face.
