Critique by DeadSkarlett Jun 21, 2012, 4:51:20 PM
First of all i would like to say what great use of colors :) I like the pose of the deer and how the antlers seem to be the same and how it seems like they are creating dust and it kind of reminds me of the northen lights if this were a real creature it would be amazing. The technique and originality are amazing it looks like it took some time :) but that is usually proof of good work. Sorry if this is not very well worded but this is my first critique so excuse me if it all over the show >_<

First of all, i just wanted to say that this picture blew me away. The two colours and the way light glows off of it gives it a ghostly appearance and reminds me of Harry Potter's patronus xD, but that's beside the point. The way that the deer is standing there alone, staring with these piercing eyes gives it an air of authority. How you positioned the antlers perfectly frames the moon and makes it seem like the moon is kind of like a border for the two colours. How the glow of colours glow on the ground make it look kind of dusty and deserted. I really love this piece of artwork. It expresses so many things at once and it is a simply beautiful masterpiece. Keep up the good work!!

This is so, so cool. I think the best part about it is all the negative space around the picture; it really makes the cervid stand out. :)

Ive never been there consciously but this seems like something one would see on the astral plane. I absolutely love this and i can see clearly what you're trying to convey which cannot be expressed with words.

Well, I don't know how he keeps his head up! It' s really a beautiful picture and I love it, but I'm a realist. When I look at it, I just can't figure out how in the world he holds up his head with those enormous horns! :iconsmile--plz: I do think it's beautiful though!

thats beautiful..i love that you capture the spectrum in this piece.. cold would not be without the warmth, just like many things in life, true pain could not be experienced without having felt true pleasure. this piece expresses the balance of life, nature, space, everything has this balance. wonderful work)
