Commission for :iconmoondust70: I finished in January :heart:

This was a very tricky commission but I really liked the result!

Commissions will open in a few months (May/June). I really miss taking commissions here in Deviantart, it was so much more fun here ; v ;!

Vision: I quite like how mysterious this piece is and how I can't quite figure out what the vision is supposed to be. I don't know whether to be enchanted that she is having a magical experience or sad that the world seems to be drowning, especially if the water is rising.

Originality: I only left off a half a star because I noticed that this is a commission, so not entirely your own idea, but it is so brilliant I regret having to do that.

Technique: Since the fuzzy style of the blossoms are so different from the clear-cut lines of the rest of the piece, it makes it look a little out of place. Everything else is fantastic though.

Impact: Overall the impact is very powerful.

This is true art. So much originality you have and much effort you have put into it. It needs more art who is like this, beacuse it is many people out there who can be as talented as you.

This reminds much of Magical girls anime in a twist, like Madoka Magica and the beauty of anime too. I have always thought that pics with Sakura trees is the most beautiful, togheter with anime characters with it and this shows the beauty of both Sakura trees and anime.

What more can I say about this art pic? It is so beautiful. That is the only thing I can say. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

It's colours are well done. It could have been better with the way you shaded though.
I think that you have drawn it really well though I can tell that it must have taken a while to draw and that hard work has paid off because it's really good. When I shade I look at speed paints of other artists and see how they do it and it really helps so maybe you could give it a try.
The lines are also put in the right places and stuff so I know that you know your stuff.
Overall your picture looks really beautiful and the water is very well drawn.
The clothes that you drew for her is also well planned out( I can't draw clothes that well).
I hope this helps

This deviation has taken my breath away. The frilly dress has a big part of this deviation as only a true artist can draw such a detailed dress. Along with the blossom tree it goes beautifully with the girl and her wavy, shiny hair. The tree and the moonlights glow as it pierces the dark water and night sky. But of course I cannot forget the bubbles and the water butterflies that looks like crystal! Very stunning to see and puts the last piece into the puzzle. The colors/shading has been pulled out perfectly. I just love how you did the tree! I'm sure that this is the best deviation that you have shown us by far and personally my favourite deviation i've seen ever! Keep up the fantastic art!

This is absolutely amazing!
I took my time just to stare at all of the magnificent detail in this photo.
I love the outfit, I find it very beautiful and original!
It took me a while to realize that there were butterfly bubbles! How fanciful!
I love the whole setting of the photo and the hair flows so nicely!
This painting appears to be the world filling with water, correct ?
What I find the slightest bit strange is the trees in the background look a bit painting is and not exactly anime style, but perhaps thats what you were going for, and of course it does not take away from the magnificence of this photo. It is very obvious that you took lots and lots of time to finish this! Photos like this make me really remember why I love your beautiful art!

this is extremely beautiful! you must have put hours into this!!

ok let me explain this ewe,

ok first, i extremely love how amazing the oc looks, from her wavy shiny beautiful hair, to her fluffy, poofy, lacy dress!

the lovely butterfly and blossom tree, bring such lively ness to the drawing, not every thing needs to be so realistic!
the water is so classy and lovely! who know you could dance you the fish with water so high! and trees growing from a never ending point,

such stars, and lovely sky, shimmers with the sparkle mountains in the back,
seems.. a little trading, and scares, but still so lively and beautiful....

Honestly, I love this. I love this a lot.
I have one problem with it though:
The water is lit up from the left side of the canvas from the moonlight, but the tree seems to have light on the top of it, but doesn't rally have a lot of the shadow for the flowers. So that is my only problem. This may be your style of painting, in that case it is not wrong. Or maybe that's just how you hoped it would turn out, but it my eyes it looks kind of weird.
Other that the lighting, I love this. So keep on working hark Rosuuri!

To begin, I find this piece to be really nice, i love the pose of the character. It has a really nice dreamlike vibe.

When I first looked at the piece it was really nice and nearly flawless, but seeing a few more times I noticed a couple of things that really stuck to me:
The tree it kind of looks a bit misplaced, like the style of the tree has a brush vibe to it while everything else looks very cut clean. I know trying to get every little petal would be death, but perhaps instead just let the picture have that brush feelings to me.

The light source it's nice how it spotlights the characters, but I think a bit more darkness would really strike at the viewer. Some of the areas were there is light seem like light shouldn't really be there i'm not sure if I'm misplacing the tree is or not understanding the light source is., but it stands out in a way where i'm questioning the picture. I study nature and with how closed the tree is the rays of light wouldn't be as abundant, trees love sunlight it helps them thrive they a bit selfish on sharing lol.

I do like the contrast between background and character, but you don't have to be scared of using darker colors, within darkness there is light they work well together.

I love the creative idea of the butterflies being a bubble and the foreground being lightly blurred so your focus is on the character. The details in the dress are extremely well thought out and placed, I keep tracing the pattern and I can see the hardwork put into the piece.

By god this piece is really strong and you're hardwork, time, and ideas elegantly flow even the little bits of rainbow in the background help highlight this lovely dream. I love the feeling of falling into the water, with the expression of the character I feel a sense of calm like when you just gently flow to the bottom. I'm curious to the world that's at the bottom. Overall the picture is lovely, there are a few things to consider, but I know you worked very hard and the end piece is dazzling.

I love it! Wow was the first thing that came through my mind! ^-^

It is fascinating, delicate, dreamy, insparing and very fantasy like! The only thing that bugged me was the tree, the sakura flowers seemed a little bit out of place. They seem too small in comparison to the whole image.

The colours that you used are beautiful and a very good choice indeed! The possition of the girl fits to the idea and the butterfliesare are a really good finishing touch to the image.


But otherwise this is a great job! Continue to draw like this! <3 <3

The only thing I would say for critique is, be careful with bright, whitish-light colors. When I first saw this it was hard to see the girls face and the position she was in because of the bright light. ( Especially the sleeve, face, and hair area ) However, this might just be how it appears in small format. After downloading, everything was clearer. Keep the lighting in mind when doing a small format type picture. One other little detail is that the light in the drawing is coming straight down, but the light beams are coming down from an angle. Other than that, it is a truly beautiful piece. Perfecto! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>

Well this took me by a pleasant surprise when I saw it in my inbox * v * the colors are stunning and I guess if I had to describe this artworks it would be peaceful but vibrant; the dress and hair especially look really detailed and the butterflies work super well with the character design-- just argh it's really well done q u q
I guess the thing that you could maybe work on the in the future is the cherry blossom tree.- It's difficult to critique this because I know how difficult trees can be to shade - but as the rest is lined and shaded, the tree seems a bit out of place. The shadows and highlights in it are really good-- but I think that with your art style it maybe takes away from the rest and becomes the main point of the artwork, even if you might not want it to be.

I can't say I have seen anything like this though so if you'll excuse me I shall go stare at this in awe for half an hour / v \

This piece is truly wonderful, a pure work of art. Along with the details being gorgeous, the lighting makes it looks like she is floating above the water, yet she;s underwater. When I saw the preview of this I though "Oi, she isn't underwater!" but I was wrong. Her dress, her boots, her hair are all details so incredibly well that you can't clearly see the outlines but you know they're there.
The look on her face gives an expression of "It's okay, I won't go anywhere." Truly a wonderful modern piece of art the expresses what most anime focus on: Faith.

Okay.
I'm gonna come right out and say it. This is breathtaking.
But...
I feel like the blue on her costume is a little out of place. She would have had a little more impact if she was a completely pink contrast to the blue water. Just like the tree above her.
Her face is a little off, in that it is placed on the neck wrong. However, it is not a lot and can be easily ignored.
The one thing that seems the most inconstant is her hair, which seems to be smooth and perfect in the main body of hair, but ragged in the bangs.
Also, one of her legs seems more two dimensional than the rest of her.
Other than those and a few other tidbits, this piece of art is quite lovely.
I love how she is reaching towards the light, and the fact that the moons light seems to light her so well adds a mystical effect to the whole thing.
Your background is beautiful and the bubble butterflies are so creative. I love this.
You also did a perfect job on the clothes
Good Job!

This art work is really breathtakingly, enchanting and eye grasping! I really like the details you added into this art work. Nice use of blue, purple and pink colors here too, they contrast really well with each other. I like the perception on this piece of how she's floating under the water, especially her long, flowing pink hair. The shining rays of the moonlight through the sakura tree and into the dark water just makes everything look lightened and alluring. Her outfit becomes her and matches the night scenery here. I like how the ends of her frilly dress is flowing and slightly spread out in the water, it makes you feel like you are floating in the water too. I like her pose as she's slightly drifting deeper into the water. Her outstretched hand makes her look so captivated and fascinated by the wondering butterflies that are scattering about. It's almost like the butterflies are dancing underwater around her or they could be on the surface of the water, but just looking at her like how one looks through a glass mirror. I like that. All the elements you created here blends and ties in really well with each other. It's a mesmerizing, magical, and beautiful art work. I love it!

If I were need to say one word to describe this, it would be "Fascinating ". I don't know what to say, it's almost as if it is 'perfect'. Of course nothing can be 'perfect', but this one has its own goods. The only thing that looks a bit... Misplaced? Was probably up on the top, the surface of the water. I don't know what's wrong with it, but at first glance it seemed a little weird... But after some staring, it made sense ^^.
The butterflies though. It's just like the bubbles floating about, really beautiful. I loved the idea how you drew the bubbles (or is it butterflies originally?) into butterflies ^w^

If I were to chance something, it would be to make the bottom darkest, so lit looked as if it'll last forever. But still, is there really a mistake? After all, each artist doesn't really have 'anything wrong with the drawing'.

This is super awesome special. I love it. OwO
