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!!
