Light by Kieraux Light by Kieraux
Got out of bed and decided to submit this now. :B

I will learn to draw backgrounds; I promise...someday. Iím just working on finding a style right now. :c

Anyways, this is my Shinlai, Lyr. I love him dearly. cí: I donít draw him enough, or any of my characters for that matter, SO, in attempt of getting out of art block, I did a fully colored and shaded picture of one of them. ♥ Lucky Lyr. xD

Critique Please!

Lyr is a very beuatiful character, potentially with plenty of charisma. I really like the contrast of colors, and the mask like thing on his face.
The race itself is attractive, but you have definitely proved a likeness to it if others could not see it before.
Surely one could not love the paleness, contrasted with the dark spots, and the red eyes.
It seems so soft and gentle, but then also rigid and strong with the muscles and wrappings, and the 'dark' looking face.

I also like the way you've drawn this with little to no visible lines, so to me this almost ups the value of the colors. Your eyes cannot be drawn away from the colors.

One thing I could complain about is the positioning of the muscle in the closest leg-- It could be me, but I think it's a little too high or close to the other one, or something.
I'm not a genius with anatomy for animals, espeically mythological ones, but you might want to try fixing that later or in further pictures.

However, everything else is perfectly beaitful, and I look forward to seeing more of this creature.
What do you think?

I love it. Lyr is a very original character. I have never seen something like Lyr. The patterns on lyr are very pretty. The mask is inticate yet simple in my eye. It is simple in color, but very detailed in shape. I like how the mask has natural elements you would see on real animals, like the horns.
Another thing I really love is the lighting/ shading. Light is an appropriate name for this picture. The light hits the body causing, in my mind, beauty. I love the colors with the lighting. I feel that it was shaded very well.
The form seems all natural except for one leg that I feel like it is stressed into an unnatural position. Since this creature is truly imaginary it seems all natural at the same time, because I have no real life experience of this creatur. Besides that I love this piece and it is a definate favorite of mine.

i really love the way the hair is made with shadowing and all. you have really done a good job with the details, i think you should have made an backround cause that would have been really cool, and if you are able to you should make it even more detailed some places cause i think you are able to do that :D but i really think your shadowing is good, and the creature is very cute, and i think you can even make it scary if you wanted to. :D i really do like your style, it's really cool =3

As said in the description, though, I’m working on my backgrounds because I’m really not good at them and I don’t want to ruin my pictures with them.
Thank you very much for the critique!

This is good, you're really improving on your shading! I like the choice of colors you used and how they blend well together. c:

However, the biggest thing that bugs me is the anatomy. His chest appears too narrow because of how the left front leg (closest to the viewer) is awkwardly shaded, making it look like his shoulder blade is placed on the front of his chest instead of beside it. The left hind leg's shading is also too sharp where the thigh connects to the hip making it seem anatomically incorrect. And don't forget the piece of skin that kinda connects the thigh to the hip, much how like cats have. c:

I did a quick redline which is here to help explain what I'm pointing out: [link]

Hope that helps, hope to see you improve some more! :D

Thank you! :’D ♥

Wow, I didn’t even notice shoulder blade thing. xD; Now I see why the chest looked so weird. There was something really off to me, but I couldn’t place my finger on it.
I completely forgot the piece of skin there! Looking back at the file, it was actually in the sketch. xD I guess it was lost along the process.
Thank you so much for the critique and redline! It helped very much. c: ♥
