So so so I have a really bad habit of not commenting on people's pictures even when I follow them and like the pictures and want to. And GUESS WHAT THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE SO I'MMA REVERSE SPAM YOU WITH ABSOLUTELY ZERO MERCY! 8D

First of all, the stuble hexagon textures in the back are done so well. It looks like real goldleaf, an effect that I haven't been able to pull of correctly. Ever. And I've tried! Many times! To no avail. Something you really excel in is organized chaos when it comes to textures. The clutter on the outskirts of the picture are really well-placed, so that we can enjoy every detail as we go in. This brings a lot more attention to the main figure of the piece who, being considerably less cluttered but just as detailed, is easily the focal point of it all. Being able to handle organized chaos so well is a super important skill.

Something I really envy about you is your ability to put forth high-contrast colors. I want to and I try to but somehow it just isn't in me. My eyes hurt. My brain won't put it together. It's like I'm scared to touch it for some reason. One of these days, I will uncover your secrets. > w>

... and asdf this was a Secret Santa --- WHEN WILL CHRISTMAS COME AGAIN!?!?!? D8< I NEED TO TRY MY LUCK!

AGHFGFJG THANK YOU--AND HEYHEYHEY I ALSO SEE YOUR DD ON THE RELATED SECTION AND VICE VERSA----
THIS COMMENT--HOW DO I EVEN BEGIN :iconoohmisterplz::iconoohmisterplz::iconoohmisterplz::iconoohmisterplz:

THANK YOU SO MUCH HDSHD---//SCREECHES
This is a much appreciated critique---and LMAO I loved how you coined the term organized chaos since it's such an oxymoron--dhasdbjas 
That's actually the first time that I've heard that term! //ignorant on art terms hnggg you pro----

My high contrast colors agh---I'm currently looking at it right now through the school computer and dang it's so eyesore bright---:iconyukkopowerupniplz:
In contrast to your coloring aghdfgdfhg 
and if you want to boost up your colors---I usually use the levels (ctrl + L)  tool in photoshop and it does all that stuff dnsjkfn

AND ACTUALLY WE WERE BOTH IN THE secret-santa2014 EVENT AND WHEN I SAW YOUR PIECE I WAS LIKE---"HOLY---:iconeyezoomfojlplz::iconeyezoomfojlplz::iconeyezoomfojlplz::iconeyezoomfojlplz: YOUR PAPER BIRDS PIECE AHDFHDJHD---~!!! I WISH MY SS GIFT WAS THIS GREAT AGGGGHHHDSJDHSJ IT'S SO ELEGANT WOW----:iconallmytearplz::iconallmytearplz::iconallmytearplz::iconallmytearplz:"

//totally didn't notice we were in the same event I suck! D:  I think that's called a legit art trade asdf;lkgj;fldksaj OKAY OKAY SO THIS IS THE PLAN FOR ME RIGHT NOW. I'm moving at the end of March. I'll probably have time after that, so chances are I will be able to do stuff this summer. I really ought to look for a job. asd;lkgj BEING AN ADULT IS REALLY HARD. But likely end of spring/beginning of summer will be when I have time to do a trade.

... or a collab ohgawd... what happens if we use the same line art, mirror it, and put them side by side... then have one person color one half and the other person color the other half? O_________O


Soooo manyyyy ideaaaaaaas.

What's going on with his body?
It's like his torso is pointing to the right but the legs decided to go to the left and the tail is coming from his hip ' _ '
Try using lower contrast next time, the red on his clothes makes my eyes hurt and makes harder to distinguish what is going on.

That mask is demon face is rad.

You probably thought his pose looked wrong because his body is suspended in a dynamic position. Of course, it would be really uncomfortable to hold a pose like that but realize that it's only to show a few moments before they draw out their sword and possibly slash someone with it.
Try it yourself. Pretend you're running/lunging towards someone and you're going to slash someone with a katana with all your might. Wouldn't you have to twist your body the same way as the character?

I've decided to show this rough sketch to you to show the circular motion of the character's movement. sta.sh/01fgmploeblt
Things may have looked out of place according to your perspective but what I drew actually gave movement and flow. 

Also, I admit I may have used oversaturated colors on this one but if your eyes are intolerant to my color selections, then perhaps you should tone down the brightness of your computer srceen and you should be able to adjust : )

Thank you very much for your critique.
