After reading a comment a bit below. I think its perfect :) after all, the owner of the character chose you to draw this, must have had knowledge of your style and thought your techniques worked best! Don't listen to the nit-pickers they are never helpful and just want to enforce what they 'think' is best. :)

It looks pretty, and I like the rainbow of colours, but I wonder what you used for the shades and highlights. Did you use the dodge and burn tools? Also, the fur texture is quite nice but it almost looks like you just used a stamp brush. The fur should look more furry, instead of like a skin texture. Also, the hair looks like it doesn't quite match with the rest of the body, as it looks too anime-ish and there should be more texture to it. I think you used a common smudge or blur tool trick for it, as it looks like flame. Even if it was a deliberate effect, it still could have looked better if it was drawn more hair-like. Also, the eyes could use a little more texturing, and the shading looks kind of off. Anyway, it's a nice picture, but I think you could have done better on it.

Thank you for the input, it's much appreciated!!
As for the tools I just used the general brush tool in SAI and then color tweaked and sharpening in CS6. No stamps or anything, I just drew each stroke individually. Kind of curious how I could push it more to look more furry though if you have any suggestions or tips? And no dodge/burn tool used. Sorry for it looking that way, probably from some of the color tweaking I did to try and achieve the proper colors for the gradients, haha. But overall I just picked colors and shaded things by hand~ But ahh! I totally see what you mean with the hair and eyes now that you point it out! Prob over did it a bit with the color adjusting. I'll definitely try to keep in mind next time though c:

Thank you thank you, it's been awhile since I've received a critique!! :huggle:

You're welcome! It's always a pleasure to see someone who likes critiques :D

The shading can be tricky - even I sometimes make my shading look kinda dodge/burnny at times without meaning to. For the fur, try drawing fur on the body in peaks and curls, like the fur you would see on a dog or cat.

It's a pity most fans will just say that they like the picture, or give comments like 'cool' or 'nice' when a more extensive comment would actually be more helpful. Also there are a lot of people on DeviantArt of varying talent who get pissed off when they are critiqued. I used to hate critiques until I saw how helpful they could be, and now I welcome them. I wish more people on this site would give and listen to critiques!

*hug back*

Hi there, I just dropped by to draw your attention to something, if you don't mind ^^; Kind of a critique of your critique if you will... I think part of the reason that some people get upset about critiques is that, when worded in one way or another, they can come off as insults instead of just helpful tips/suggestions. 

For example, when you say "The fur should look more furry" the use of "it should" instead of "it could" implies that they way they have it now is wrong, and some people take great offense to that and immediately get defensive (this is where "well who are YOU to judge" or "you're not that good of an artist either!" replies are common). Wording it instead as "The fur could look more furry" comes off in a more positive way, implying that it's not bad or wrong, but could be better. People are more likely to listen and appreciate it when worded in this way (though there will always be people who take all suggestions badly). 

Of your entire first comment, that's the only wording choice that, had it been me, would have made me bristle up and have to chill out before I realized that you didn't mean to just tell me "It's ok but it sucks", as my first impression would have told me. I'm one of those people that's sensitive to subtle wording, and, at first glance, have a hard time differentiating the people who are just being mean and putting down my work because of jealousy from those who are honestly trying to help when things aren't worded precisely. I like to ignore them at first and take some time to mull over what they've said before I respond so that I don't get p*ssy with someone who's really just being helpful - because if I take the time to look at what they've said, a lot of the time they're right and they ARE helpful - but I can understand how the people who hate ALL critiques read these things too. 

Just thought I'd point it out though ^^; Perhaps, if you're a little more conscious of how negatively certain things can sound, less people will get upset when given such a well-thought-out critique. You want it to sound like they should take another look at certain parts, put a little more effort in, fix up an area, use a tool that might work better for them, etc. - all in all consider how they might do things better (because they it looks like encouragement, comes off like: "you've done a great job and it could look even better if you do THIS! See, this part looks a little funny, but you can fix it I'm sure!"). You just don't want it coming off as a put-down, deliberate undermining of their achievements, especially not when they're really proud of a piece (because then they feel like even when they do something they thought was fantastic, something they're proud of for once, what's the point of ever trying again if it still sucks so badly that everyone points out all the flaws?).

Ah! I didn't realize how that sounded to you. There have been other artists though that I had given critiques, and they yelled at me for saying that their characters looked kind of plain(actually, they were doing trace and recolour art) and could use some clothes, decorations or markings, stuff like that. I also critiqued the infamous dboywheeler.

But anyway, from what you said, I think maybe that is why I would respond so badly to my parents trying to help me with other things in life. Weird, isn't it?

I also point out other stuff like lack of structure and there are some pics I had seen here that looked like sacks of goo. I sometimes use that term when doing critiques, because an artist that was critiquing my art and really helped me learn how to look at art used that comparison too. At times I'm a bit harsh with my critiques, but I'll try to not be so needlessly harsh in the future. Thanks for pointing that out - gotta make sure I don't turn mean.

Oh darn, I didn't know who dboywheeler was, but I googled him XD Now I really wish he was still around dA so I could go and read some of the stuff taking place on his page :giggle:
SOME people just misunderstand intentions and/or don't like the tone the critiquer takes... but the ones who just don't want critiques period, are kind of funny to me. It's such a shame when people don't want to improve... 

But anyway, yeah, I think you're fine for the most part ^u^ You didn't say much that could have been taken wrong, just little stuff. No big deal at all :) I had just noticed that you made it sound as if you run into people who are unhappy for the help a lot, and I figured I could try to help cut down on it a little bit. I know from experience some of the things that can get that sort of response because they were misunderstood. 

When I was still new to dA (which is also when I first got the internet), I had a tendency to respond to critiques right away (and not very happily if they sounded more insulting than encouraging with their advice). I even got into a few fights which, at the end, turned out to be miscommunications. They'd never meant it the way I took it, but could understand why I took it that way. It wasn't until a couple days later when rereading those arguments that I could see what they'd been really trying to say. Since then I've gotten better; I still get mad sometimes, but I try to take the time to calm down and look back over what they meant to say before replying. 

I doubt you'll turn mean though ;p If you're leaving critiques to help people, that's not hardly being "mean" :XD:

Sometimes I will be 'mean' a little by critiquing people who, like dboy, respond like dramallamas to critiques from people trying to help them, or like some other wannabes, trace their art. I don't like it when people trace and then say that the traced art was done completely by them.

In another life on DeviantArt I also got into a lot of miscommunications, and got quite a few text-wall flames in my journal which made things hella worse. Then I learned to love the critique and to not be so fan-girly.

I guess that in a way, my aspergers syndrome does affect the way I write, because I don't always know how my words will be perceived by others. I'm getting better at that though, since I'm going to counseling and I've spent quite a few years learning how to behave on the interwebs.

Anyhoo, do you do critiques? I'd love to get a few :D
