First of all, wow; just wow this is amazing! My critiques work like this: I tell you what I like and what I think could be changed.
What I like: The fur detail The eyes, the ears omg The shading
What could be changed and how: First thing I notices were those shoulder blades protruding Shoulder blades face up not down; and for this pose they are not meant to be that visable. The shading underneath is really dark and it brings they eye straight there and not to the face, fir detail ect try studind pictures of cats sitting like that.
Second of all, the fur is so nicely dtailed but the scarf isn't- Try usuing highlight and folds more and find out what the blue tidbits are- are they feathers? Cotton? ect
I suck at critiques, but hopefully I'll manage to pull one off for this beautiful masterpiece! First of all, I really love how you did the fur. The texturing is really pretty and it shows the highlights and shadows perfectly. I particularly like the cheek fluff, and also the way you outlined everything in blue. I also absolutely love the eye, which I thought I'd just point out. It really looks like it's glowing ;U; The only thing that confuses me is her chest. I don't know if those are boobs or what...? It's very minor, though, and I love the rest of it. That's all I have to say, I guess!
The shading doesn't really make sense, being that it's orange/brown-based and the colors around the character are all blues, as well as the shading and the highlights being all over the place. You might want to involve more influence from the background than just the bright blue highlights. I'll admit, when doing something simple, it's okay to colorpick form the ref sheet, but when it comes to higher detail, you have to do some mixing with the background and the original until you meet a nice middleground that not only works but looks nice in the lighting. (ex I made Graymalkin a little more purplish blue than greenish blue because it worked best with the shadows i was using) When it comes to shadows, you should probably stick to cool colors if your background is also cool, like here. The shadows would work for a sunsetty background, but not so much what you have going on here. While it does add some great contrast, it just looks off. You can, however, focus on adding orange in a select few spots. The eyes are a great place to start, and look great, but they just don't pop on the rest of the character because it's also very orange.
Take this all with a bit of salt because im a huge hypocrite and am kinda talking out of my ass a bit orz
ahh yep i agree. for this piece i shaded before doing the background, so that's why the two are out of sync ; O ; gotta remember to do the background first hnghhn. thanks, i totally appreciate you pointing that out for me, i'll make sure to do that next time :3
I know I already commented but I was checking out the critiques..here's what I say.. The shoulder blades don't look right to me..I think it would look good if all you did was erased the blades, and then be done with it. I do not think the scarf being not as detailed is bothersome..that's just me though. My vote is just erase the blades. Nice joooobb!!!!!
It's really cool but i have a few things to say critique wise 1) the shoulders are WAY sticking out. it's a little too atention grabbing if you know what i mean 2) The scarf doesn't look as detailed as the rest of it, which is off putting
