I like:
The rain effect.
The mood of the image.
The colours used.
The little trails of rain coming off her hair and body.
The shadows and colour on the ground.
The kind of glow behind her.



It looks like you are trying to use a bit of perspective, like we are looking down on her? Her head is a bit big but her feet are a bit small. It doesn't seem like there is enough of an angle to justify such a perspective. By all means if you want to use perspective don't let me stop you, but perhaps a little less in this case.

Continuing on that, the hands are too small compared to the head. Also, I know it is hard to get someone holding a small animal like that right, but making one of her hands simply vanish doesn't solve that. If you get stuck try looking at pictures of people hugging animals (try google even) for ideas on hand placement.

Her arms suggest that she is wearing a large jacket with quite a bit of thickness to it, but around her waist and hips is suddenly a thin jacket. This is what I mean with the perspective. Even if there was to be some perspective in this image, I don't think that the thickness of the jacket would disappear so quickly.
You could make the arms and head smaller, or the rest of the body a little thicker/bigger to help with this.


Also, her hat looks like it is about to fall off her head. If this is the intended effect, then great. Otherwise, you've not drawn the shape of her head correctly for the angle that it is at (looking down). Again you could look at reference or try and create your own. Put on a beanie, look down slightly and take a picture of your head.
It might just be the hair obscuring it, however. Make sure to draw the basics of the face (so you know that it looks right) before you cover it up with hair.


I kind of have no idea what the black thing behind her is... a cape? I can't tell.

I am not sure about the way you've drawn her pants. It kind of looks like she has an odd bulge on the side of her thigh. The highlight on the knee is okay, and the one below that is kind of okay too. I just can't identify why that first bulge is there.
Is it meant to be dampness from the rain? Something being wet usually makes the colour darker, I think.
Are they meant to be pockets? If so it would have been nice to see some evidence of an opening to the pocket. (Also, if they are pockets they are really rather large pockets... but I think some pockets can be that big so perhaps that is not the issue.)



My explanation for the ratings:

Vision - 3 stars.
Does the artwork present or reflect a point of view, theme or idea? It could mean something, but though I think it has some good impact, I don't think it has a strong vision. I don't think it easily tells a strong message to the viewer.

Originality - 3 stars.
The situation doesn't seem that original. Someone sad and standing in the rain has been done before quite a bit (not that its necessarily bad). But the little animal and the whatever-that-black-thing-is, her outfit, and the fact that I haven't personally seen one of the standing in the rain pictures for a while prompt me to give you this score.

Technique - 2.5 stars.
Your technique is decent, but has lots of room for improvement.

Impact - 3.5 stars.
The emotion in the piece comes across quite well.



Final note:
Going over this critique makes me think I am putting too much detail into the bad things and not saying enough about the good. :/ Please don't be offended. I do like this art, it's why I put so much effort into trying to help you. If you do anything with it is totally up to you!

Nice! I watch a lot of YouTube while I draw, haha. I'm more productive if I just listen to music though. Wink/Razz
