I was afraid to commit sin, and so i did nothing. Yet not doing anything is a sinful act itself.

what monster have i become?



i haven't touched watercolor in over half a year...coz last time i used it it was horrible. >_< this time when i picked it up again i spent ages squeezing my tubes. T.T

I'll give a critique, even though i'm not that good at it^^ First off, this is a really expressive piece that conveys alot of emotion to the viewer, and you managed to portray those emotions very well^^ You used watercolors for this, and it was done really wonderfully^^ It gives the piece a very beautiful, melancholy feel with the texture of the paint. The character itself is gorgeous, and proportioned very well. However, i feel as though the hand in the front is slightly off. The background is VERY expressive, helping the viewer to feel the whirlwind of emotions that went into the piece. The attetntion to detail and shading is wonderful. This is a gorgeous piece, great job! :clap: Thanks for asking for a critique^^

a little tip if you'd like some; start with the lightest colors/areas first, then gradually switch to darker/more saturated colors. it gives you more control and makes it a little bit easier to fix small mistakes and so on. My mom told me that :3333
