The Spell-gift for Mel-chan by Lilith-the-5th
First of all I'd like to say I adore how you've drawn little Vivi!

You've picked out the details of his clothes very well, particularly on the shoes and the jacket. You have a very good understanding of light direction and shadows and use them well to direct the eyes to the hand and spell. The light seems a little too over exposed in places and the glow on the gems could be a little softer - but - I must say the glow on the gems on his jacket are lovely and add to the water effect.

The main bit of advice I would give for this piece is about the pose. It appears as though you've wanted to have Vivi leaning into a strike however he looks like he is possibly falling backwards (please correct me if I'm wrong). Tightening up the pose would really add to the dynamic effect of the piece and really strengthen the motion of the spell.

Overall you've created a very lovely drawing of Vivi. I hope art block doesn't plague you in the future as you have a good eye for detail and thank you for sharing it.
Red: Starfox Request by SpiraxDracowolf
Red: Starfox Request
FoxMcCloud: "Jeez! Can anyone take care of it?"

Yup, Red can! ;)

A request from NBrownPhotography. He had an idea for a new kind of starfox team member and *whoosh* here he is!

Now (just in case) I know Red is holding the Homing Launcher upside down - but - as I've never played the StarFox Assault game, I'm not even sure if I have the barrel on the right side!! I just went with what I thought was aesthetically
 pleasing from what references I could find.

I've leaned more toward the puppet versions of StarFox for the outfit design. Let me know what you think, and if Red could be an extra member or not? Careful how you answer as he might attack you with the pen!

It's definatly time for me to get something to eat!

This is the first time I have written a critic so please bare with me.

You've captured the delicate details of the flower and the exposure is very even. The focus is clear and sharp where it needs to be. The only thing I could say for improvement is that the yellow in the background is very vivid and seems to distracts from the subject a little (saying that you have captured the colours beautifully which personally I find hard to do). The yellow does set off the colour of the flower but some natural sky lighting or more elements of the plant included might balance the colours a bit more gently.

Overall I think the composition of this piece has been done very well. I love your choice of flower and hope you take many more photos.
Pondering if I should do a Kiriban at some point.
Do you like the monthly feature journals? If so...:)
