Hi there I've featured your ART here [link] I may be not as awesome, but I certainly have great taste at least in identifying beauty, don't u think If u wish to leave a comment please do on the journal page
Are you part Native American ? This really looks like a
totem or warrior's lance - amazing blending work thru-out.
The image has a mystical quality about it. Well done ! You
have a wonderful sense of what's right in composition/image
Oh wow. Mr. Hybel told me to check you out. I am now and your work is amazing. We have a lot in common. I want to be this good one day. Hopefully with a lot of work I will be. Winter is my least favorite season but this is amazing.
I don't think the arms and legs are too bright, it's no mistake either, the tail has the same brightness, the fork had to stay dark because that's not the subject and if you make that bright as well it will be hard to see the difference between the subject and the fork. Next to that I don't think that the limbs are too bright for the picture, especially when you compare them with the ground and the snow.
okay, but only the edge of the fork is illuminated which suggests its lit from behing - the body however ist lit from the front - IMHO it just doesn't add up. hope you don't mind my criticism, just trying to be constructive...
