As a whole this is a very nice piece, well done and love the lighthearted atmosphere of this picture. Definitely captures the "perfect" summer experience.

I wanted to point out the lovely cyan highlights you placed on most of the pokemon above the water. Very nice but it does seem a little "too hard" of a color for where they are at. I can see that shade of blue being used in a darker scene to make a few features pop out a little, but not entirely necessary for a "sunny" scene. Try toning down the water highlights next time and see how they turn out. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I also wanted to point out the um... sand mound? I'm pretty sure that's what that is under Keldio or whatever the donkey/unicorn thing is called I love the blending techniques used on this. Very lovely. However, because it seems so well blended, it feel a little out of depth. Meaning, I feel like that mound is supposed to be in the "background" rather than the "middle ground". The other pokemon near/on that mound appear to be "copied and pasted" in the picture. I feel like you could have bolded those lines on that rock/sand thing just a little more and it would be perfect! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I love that wide-angle lens effect you put in too. Really gives this piece a great sense of depth! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

The ocean where the Ducklett, Oshowott, and the... raichu mouse thing are at (forgive me, I haven't been keeping up with some of the new announcements on gen 6)... It's a bit, awkward. More specifically, where you placed the water splashes, you should try either making the lines for the surface of the ocean a lot thinner, so the splashes are more noticable, or remove the line and just have the splashes there. It almost looks like the 3 are sitting on the line instead of splashing around and having a ball in the water. You're on the right track, it just needs a little more tweaking! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I also wanted to applaud you on the background (the island), and the light effects underwater. Very awesome. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> Well done on that! Love all the 'mons' designs and expressions too! Very cheeky and so cheerful! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> I'm convinced they look like they are having an absolute blast!

One last tidbit, the flowers seem a little out of place perspective wise (the flowers falling from Swana). That's just a perspective issue, and I would suggest if you can find any... find some pictures of flowers falling to the ground. I'd love to see them with a little more motion because they seem so stagnant in comparison to everything else in this picture. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Well, hope you liked my critique and take it as it is! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> Hope this is what you were looking for, and again, lovely job on the picture! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
