Sanctuary by Elzux Sanctuary by Elzux
Kurat resting at her favourite place.


since when have i put so much detail in my drawings..
Yet I still see so many flaws in it, but i decided not to work on them anylonger to make the drawing seem less... overworked with.

Please, critique is appreciated.

Well there are TONS of shades of green and using them differently can make your character stand out in a green forest! :) Thanks for your comment! :aww:

Oh my goodness! The background is awesome! I love that she's green but isn't lost in the plants. I had a green character I made blue because I thought this would make them disappear, and I haven't even started on the plants. Plants are evil. You did wonderful. She's lovely.

Hmm, I guess you're right, now that I look at the log again, the surface does look a bit smudgy. I should work on the surface texture to give it more of a "real" feeling. I don't think more depth should be added to the shading, though, perhaps just a little more highlights.
Thanks again! C:

Hmm, perhaps I could've worked on the waterline a bit more to make it more visible :lol: no, it's not supposed to be floating! XD
Thanks for the comment :3

This is stunningly beautiful! I love all the greens, it makes me want summer! And the gryphon itself is just wonderfully drawn, adorable and lovely~ As for critique, the drawing is almost perfect in my eyes. My only suggestion would be to rework the log going diagonally through the top left part of the drawing. Maybe not more detail but a different way of shading would improve it. As it is, the log looks flat compared to the other things in the picture.

This is so pretty and the detail is nice, the only thing weird is that it looks like there sitting on a floating land, but maybe that's what you were going for?
Good job anyways :)

This amount of detail... It's just so lovely...
I can't believe you found the patience to go trough with this.
However, what truly amaze me the most is the strong knowledge of colours and shadow you show in this picture.
I mean, usually pictures are either colourless or eye burning, but this. This picture just strikes the reader showing a talent other artists just can envy.
Magnificent.
