Talimaandia - Seer by teiirka Talimaandia - Seer by teiirka
The motes of time, having failed to coalesce, drift back into the etherial and disappear, unable to again be called to the physical world till their true time. Hours of concentration, of reaching out with her very soul that threatened to snap the fragile cords that make body and spirit one, wasted. A slight but incessant sound had found it's way into her sanctum and had broken the trance required to perform the calling.

She is not happy.

"If it's that same damn pizza delivery guy come to the wrong address again", she thought, "I will sprinkle his diced heart on the pizza…. and refuse to pay the additional topping cost ! "

11 x 14 color pencil

I kind of overstepped my comfort zone on this one and took way longer than I had planned. Learned a lot though, do's and don'ts.

I know there are anatomy and other problems but I would still like to get critique to point out the problems so I may be able to do better on the next one.

Shot with camera but colors are pretty close. Will probably go back in and adjust a few things as I see them.

This will probably be for sale in the AC art show…if I don't leave my portfolio case in the front yard like I did for MFF.

Thanks to all who tool the time to critique this piece during its creation. It's far from perfect but far better than it would have been without your help : )

Talimaandia - Seer by *teiirka. The effort that *teiirka put into this piece is almost palpable. The folds in the tigress' dress, the texture of her fur... I don't think a single detail has been overlooked! ( Suggested by Mabon-Tail and Featured by KovoWolf )

Wow.

I mean.. like... WOW.

No mistakes in view. Well... head COULD be a tad smaller. ;)

I love the... everything! Very detailed. I also love the little reflection on the floor. Nice touch! Excellent pose choice. Fascinating clothes design. Amazingly well done markings! Very nice work on her hand... Shading is perfect. Very strong looking girl! Hmm... interesting background.

And must I not forget the fur! So detailed... One of the greatest pieces I've ever critiqued! She looks like a goddess! ^^

Just wondering... does she have a name? It would be rude not to address a princess correctly. ;)

Nice piece! :D

This is overall just fantastic. The details are amazing and the way the stripes fit the movement of the body is perfect. Definitely no problem there.
How she is placed within the frame is also spot on.
Also very original and regal.

Now it's time for the not so fun stuff. There's not really a whole lot wrong with it, so I hope this doesn't sound too nit picky.

It seems that things got a little rough towards the shoulders. I think the bicep might be a little to long compared to the forearm and the shoulders should be tilted a bit more towards the viewer . The flow is really wonderful towards the legs but she begins to look a bit stiff around the shoulders. Im not sure if the candles are a part of just flat background (as if painted on a wall) or they are there emanating light. If they are there should be bit of glow hitting that side of her.

But overall I love this piece. It's gorgeous and expressive. I also love the reflections on the floor and your choices of color. Everything is very clear and detailed and there aren't any parts that take away from the piece. Amazing pencil work!!! :)

Thank you. That is about as nice a comment that I could ever receive but I have nowhere her expertise or experience. I just kind of guess my way along a lot of the time and make to many obvious errors and work with only with one media, color pencil, where DarkNatasha is a master at about everything. I do try and improve with each piece, trying to improve anatomy, composition, and technique.
Maybe some day.

The nerve of some people.
not you, him...or her (the guy who drew this is a 'he' right?)
Your critique was well thought out and, though I could disagree with a couple things, I thought it was very generous. You also weren't a snob about it.

is it just me...or do I feel like i'm critiquing your critique...

wonderful pose and work on the fur. She does look somewhat annoyed. I don't actually expect human proportions on a tiger creature so a more subtle spine is to be expected. I guess you know that the right upper arm is slightly too short compared to her left one, though. I also think that her lying down like a cat is completely in character, I would expect her to do it, in fact. All in all a very beautiful piece with a great character.
