Як ви бачите цей персонаж привабливий . Але має деякі мінуси :
1. нижня частина трохи не дороблена .
Причина втому чи художник спішив ,чи йому надоїло вже довго робити.
2. Ліва рука і нога якось виглядають спрощено і не доробленою .
3. Я на картині бачу всі мінуси які художник припустився.
4. горло звужене.
Плюси :
Тіло має хорошу пропорцію.
Вуха і обличчя гарно намальоване .
Персонаж гарний і милий.
І ще я не думав що ти приробиш хвостика (OWO)
Оцінка (56% - 60%) ;З

Thank you for the review! I can't read Ukrainian, so I used Google translate. However, I don't trust it enough, so I wrote my reply in English.

As you pointed out, some part of this picture has less detail than the others. This is not because I'm tired, it was done intentionally. In this way I wanted to give the picture a touch of atmospheric feeling. But it was also new to me, so I probably overdid it and left an unfinished impression. There are many places to be improved, indeed. Next time I will try to increase the overall detail level while still keeping this atmospheric feeling.

I wish you and all Ukrainian people a prosperous future!

I love the design work on this piece. Its so cute and huggable and the background of this image looks claim, peaceful, and beautiful.
The design of the character reminds me of Lombax but as a female. The butterfly is a nice addition to the character too.

The only thing is the lighting and shadow, the character you have is in a dark room with little lighting. you should have added more shadows around the character. The green color is nice but you could have added some brown oak color.

Overall its a nice work of art, congrates to you.

The only Slight critique I would give is that many of her details are being lost in the pretty and whispy color scheme. I would increase the light to dark contrast just a smidge, REALLY darken those shadows. REALLY lighten those hilights....and that her right eye (the closed one) needs to move closer to the nose just very slightly...but over all I think this is a very beautiful piece. It just needs some shadows to really get her to leap right off the page.

She looks fun and slightly mischievous!

(Sigh...Also the darn thing says my critique is too short so now I must take up space down here to gripe about it....-_-; Lol)

Thank you for the review! Lowering the contrast and controlling the amount of detail to a certain level were the point of this lighting experiment, though! I also applied ambient occlusion theory so the shadow is less pronounced. Washed-out color was intentionally used to re-create the sunlight at noon.

But I must admit the result wasn't what I envisioned it to be, for better or for worse. This style completely new to me, after all. I will keep using this style, aiming to improve it. Hopefully I can include more details in the future while still be able to keep the dreamy feeling!

NO! I do love it!!!!

If you were going for a dreamy @ noon feeling, I might try just really spiking those highlights and try a motion blur filter turned way down....

I still think she's cute, and the only reason I pointed out any fixes at all was honestly because of the request for critique. ^^; I definitely think that you should keep trying until you get the effect you want. =D

This is a beautiful piece, very well done, the only thoughts I had (for improvement that is) is making it a little easier for the viewer to determine what sort of animal she is. If i were not told she were a bunny with tiger strips I would have gone with her being a sort of bobcat with the longer ears and shorter tail. Possibly adding some small intense highlights in a few places like her hair or on the sleeves of her dress where the light hits, maybe on her back right foot of in the tuffs of fur on her tail, this is just a preference rather than a "must do" it would just give the eye something more to enjoy.That is all! The lighting is marvelous and the colors simple capturing! Distinction and a few more highlights are my only minor issues!! Beautiful work keep it up!

Thank you! It's interesting that you said "preference" no a "must do". Because all the choices I made here were essentially my personal preference, at least for this picture. Everything I did was to make it less intense. You might know my ordinary style has been rather strong and well-defined. I think it might be an interesting experiment to use smoothness and softness to show the feminine attractiveness of this character.

The tiger bunny thing was even more of a preference! lol Although I striped rabbits are real:…

I will admit that I was new to this style so things were not smoothed out and has some weird places. I will keep improving this style. I will recall your suggestions constantly to create a better balance between style and accuracy.
