I am somewhat puzzled by the tale. When i take my hand over it, the picture seems whole, complete you might say, without it. Then as i reveal the tale, it doesn't add anything more. The tale seems somewhat empty, i can't define it's purpose.. Perhaps it's just my eyes playing tricks on me, because i cannot seem to get the dimensions right, as it lies between the grass..
I am fascinated by the background, as well as the clouds. The clouds are really impressive, many variations. It's like like the clouds outside, with a little imagination you could see different shapes in them. Thats perfect clouds..
Though that strong blue in the middle kinda turns me off a bit.. So powerful, stealing the attention from the lovely scenery around it. I'm not sure discarding the powerful blue would work either, because then the animal would be steal the attention.. Perhaps some details in the background suffice, something that eases the impact of the creature, so the whole picture can sink in
The creature and the moon, fits perfectly like hand in glove. My applause. I like the symmetry of the face, that little horn on the top flows well with the colors of his/her eyes.
Overall i like it, it's a deep peace of art. It has soul. Thumbs up from me
Thank you for your critique, this creature had originally been for a contest and since it was not considered I have since re-uploaded it and used it for a journal skin.
It is a combination of creatures and the tail more represents the cat aspect of it I guess you can say, I personally really like the tail but I find your perspective highly interesting.
I do agree that it needs a little more going on, I kept it fairly simple for its purpose and the blue is rather simple in the moon. The part that I had liked about it was that it added an almost 3d effect when full-viewed but I can see that it can also hurt it.
I'll take all these into consideration. Thank you for your time and honest critique, I highly appreciate it!
