This drawing really has a fantastic reality to it that goes beyond accuracy. The detail put into both wolves/ fur makes them look almost tangible, even soft. I especially noticed the use of lighting in this picture. Even if it is subtle, there is an obvious light source reflected on the fur and noses of the wolves. This contributes all the more to the tangibility of the piece and really is what wraps the whole thing up, at least for me.
Apart from the artistic aspect of the drawing, The wolves themselves, though doing a simple and regular thing, have a huige amount of expression and character in them. The way they are placed gives them an almost human look.
Finally, about the blurring, it makes the wolves look more realistic because of themovement it adds, especially on the tongues. The one on the right looks like it isflicking its tongue inward, and also seems to be moving its head.
Overall, this is a fantastic piece, and I personally would like to see more of this kind.

I don't know if this really counts as a critique...It seems more like pure praise to me ^^;
What do you think?

Brilliant drawing!
You should definitely get a better photo or scan of it.

I really don't see anything that can be improved here. You captured very well the affect of the fur, as well as that of sparkling parts - such as the noses and the eye of the left wolf. Actually, the noses are my favourite part :)
I also like the way you chose to place their heads with regards to the paper, the look from a close distance adds a lot to the impact. Also, the black background contrast well with the comparatively light faces of theirs.

It's hard to write a 100 words long critique about a drawing you see nothing that can be improved about, but somehow I succeeded ;)

Haha, I don't know what you mean. Usually other people don't appreciate art as much as you would, I don't mean that to sound bad.
AP? advanced placement?

Ok, two things, don't have premium membership, so can't enable critique & I'm definitely no artists (but I've moved up from stick figures!). that said, if you're willing to listen I'll give you my..."critique" of your pic. ^^ sorry if it sucks

Dude, amazing detail. I always love these kind of pictures you do show everything from the fur's tome and colors, how at times it looks soft and other times kinda bristly, like he just got out from the water and shook himself off, if that makes sense. It's really good. =]
Then, there's the second dog--the one whose eye are closed. Maybe I'm just stuck on tongues, but I ay his looks a little...well, weird. unnatural is probably the word I'm going for, and i personally think he might look better without sticking his tongue out, but that's your call as the artist.
Same dog, real quick, but is his right side, kinda, concave? to me it looks either like he's missing an ear or that side of his face is just a little to flat. I under stand that he's kinda turning his head (if I'm wrong...crap, >< ignore me), but I still say it looks like his head is semi-attached to the rest of his body a little too well. But hey, that's just me.

Make sure to drink lots of fluids--tea is amazing. It did wonders for my sore throat/stuffy nose & might help you out. I recommend the herbal stuff. Green tea's pretty good. =] And sleep plenty if possible!
Get better soon, Rach & badass drawing--and it's of puppies!! ^^

Thanks for the concern btw ;) I'm feeling better. I still have a cough, but it's going away :heart:


As for the part you think looks strange, that's actually what it's supposed to look like. I have reference and that's exactly what it looks like LOL Often the strangest things are real C: Thanks for the crit though! That's cool that you took the time to write it :)
