Flames of Emotions by FlareAKACuteFlareon Flames of Emotions by FlareAKACuteFlareon
...So yeah... My first digital Picture of this year is here~ :meow: And I said it was going to be something yeah..:XD: My vents are pretty lame, but I can seriously do bad-looking one also~

While I was doing this, I heard from my friends, who I send WIPs (Work in Progress) of this, that I have improved... Have I? If I have, I can't see it...:shrug:
Yeah... This is the picture, which handles most of my feelings towards my Grandmother's death... Sadness, Brokeness, a little bit fear...
This picture was firstly gonna be "Light of Spirits" stating that even though I have lost her now, her memory still lives with me...and maybe her spirit is watching me? Well the picture didn't turn out as I had firstly planed...But I guess it still turned out better than that?^^

I am feeling a lot better now, as I said in one journal, and at the moment I'm a lot more like myself.. So...~ I guess that's it?:D
But yeah...
One more time!
Happy New Year 2013 Everyone:heart:

I'm doing this today since I wanted to leave a critique on this but had no time yesterday. x)
I think this picture looks really nice! The many glowing effects, they do leave an impression. I like the emotion you put in this. It's a personal piece and it shows. It's a strong picture.

There's a few things I'd like to point out.
Anatomy-wise, the fact that the anatomy isn't realistic doesn't bother me much. But somehow, the proportions are off so the body doesn't quite look in balance to me. For example, the head's size is good comared to the body, however compared to the back legs it's really small. I think you should leave the belly more visible and make the back leg part thinner.
I would also either add more of a muzzle, or place the eyes higher up, since the face looks rather small.
The legs may look thick but that's not much of a bother actually, and Flareon are stocky creatures so it isn't really a bad point. The tail is huge but that's not too much of a problem either.

Now, for the shading and highlighting, there's a lot of stuff that you can play with to make this look even better. c:
The stones on the ground look nice, and so does the shiny floor in between the stones. However, the stones imply a 3D structure while the floor in between would be flat. Since the stones are higher up than the floor and the floor is so shiny, they would leave some kind of reflection on the floor, or shadows at least. It'd make both the stones and the light source stand out more.
I'd also use heavier light and shading for the stones, since there is a really bright light source yet it doesn't stand out on those stones very much. Still, I like this idea for a floor. :D

As for the shading on Flare herself, it's nice, but I feel like the light on her should be more heavy. She's producing some bright light in there, and it's very close to her, so it should show on her fur.
I really like the effect of the light swinging around her head a lot. The pawfire is nice, too.
The shaded parts look nice, but I would've added more light on her back legs, I feel like the light would reach farther on that part.
I also feel like most of the unshaded parts of the tail should have some shading anyway, since it's unclear why there would be light on those. I would blend the tail shading more to create more of a round shape, it looks a bit flat this way.
Finally, I would add some kind of blueish shine on Flare at some parts, to reflect the blue of her surroundings, and to make her blend in more with the background.

I might critique a lot but I actually still think this is a good artwork. xD It's not perfect but it still is a great piece, and I sure do love the emotion in it - most vents don't make it into full pictures like this one. ;)
Keep drawing, you're doing great and you'll only improve more if you keep it up like this!

Woman,wow! You improved for so hella much for the time i've known you X3 (3 years~) and I still believe you keep blooming c:
So I thought I might help you during your process of evolution dundun :D Lol,sorry for my bad critiquing I'm just so failing at it lmao. Don't take it personally,I will just write my own opinion,but I will try to keep it as objective as I can :3. Here goes nothing :U

Her fur shading is absolutely outstanding <3 It has a painted effect,which gives this picture a somehow authentic look. I like it!
The emotion on her face that you decided to show through tears...I'm surprised!You improved a lot on facial expressions and now your characters from your pieces have much more emotion,they seem alive. It gives me the impression she is trying to do something,with great effort and with her heart and sould into it. Lovely~<3
I can't seem to get enough of your backgrounds recently! They just keep getting better and better which is no doubt a pro point for chu,my dear sister.This background is no exception. It's wonderful!

-I don't know how to put it,but it looks like her belly is very short then there go the hind-legs. Don't get me wrong,but you could try to make her waist a little longer,because right now it looks a little dissproportionate.

Overall,I really like this picture. One of your best works so far!
Keep going sister,and in few years you will reach your goal or even improve much more to become someone better then who you want to be~ Good job c:
