Most critiques would have negative points but this one, as far as I see it, only has one.
clever use of the ancient language on the stone at the deer's feet, "Firefly" (if they are not the case) lights will always add a bit fantasy and mystery.
Personally, having character of a blue shade would symbolize you wanting to be something ,not different, but better. (not in the case of changing yourself but using the of your abilities.) This image does have a sign of sadness but I can only see the beauty of the scenery.

As mentioned before, there is all but one minor flaw and that is the shadows are present. But they feel somewhat not defined enough (Don't kill me for being such a stickler for stupid details.) That is the only thing I feel is not protuberant.

This is by far the best artwork i had the honor of giving critique thus far. (Hey; things can change in the future, I just hope it is you the next time you submit another masterpiece)

Hi, thank you for letting me critique!
Vision: I gave you four stars, I can see what you are going for in the drawing. I could tell is was a gravestone even before I read the title. Your light sources are beautifully done.
Originality: I gave four and a half stars on this for the beautiful aspect on death. It probably sounds weird to say it like that, but I love the difference than many drawings on death. The colours are positively gorgeous, The contrasting gold against blues and greens stand out and add a sense of fantasy. It is clear to see the thought put into it.
Technique: I gave four and a half starts on this because I've recently started with digital at and I understand a lot of the challenges that I am still learning to overcome. I love the textures you are showing on the close up vegetation and the fur and hooves on the deer. The anatomy on the deer is very well done. It is easy to see the work put into it.
Impact: I gave you four stars for impact. I personally loved the the drawing and it stood out among other drawings in my notifications. The sharp gold contrast is my favourite.
Thank you for letting my say my opinions. Keep drawing, I really wish to see more!

I would critique, but I only have one thing to say about this.....


It's got a really meaningful depth to it, but I really can't say much else...
Comic-Illustration Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2016  Student Digital Artist
The gold comes very well across here. I see a lot of people struggling with gold colors. Personally I like the contrast you chose of blue and warm/golden colors. The blue tones in the surrounding are very warm as well though. Maybe, if the blue of the surrounding was an even colder blue but the deer blue was still a warm blue it would have made the concept even better. Quiet and nice picture though.
