RRAAHH 3 FACKING HOURS! Anyways yuh. If you can please PLEASE Critque this. And please don't say "OMG ITS PERFECT." lol I want you guys to bash me. I need to get better. Soooo Smash me with critques. xD Thanks guys.
This is my first critique, so, yeah it may bot be all that good.
Overall, I think this is a very good drawing. The color scheme is easy on the eyes, and blends well while still standing out. I really like how you did the eyes, the whole gradient thing gives it a look of life. The nose looks like it's not connected to the muzzle, but it's not that bad. The muzzle and mouth in general is wonderful. Same with the chest. It's cute, but still looks mostly anatomically correct. The paws are just absolutely adorable. The background could use some work, seeing that I don't even know what those orange blobs are. But that's probably just part of the effect. The flower is very nice. The sunlight is a tad overwhelming, but just barely. Like I said earlier, overall I think this is a very good piece of art. Very cute, very beautiful, just great in general. I hope this helped!
This is a very beautiful piece. The backround--the sunlight. It's really good. Something that caught my eye was the fact that the legs are so straight. That could definatly use some work. Also, the tail is straight up.That just doesn't look right, if you know what I mean. It sould be down or to the side or something. I really like the eyes. Itwarms everything up. But as said the nose is very strange. It's like...hanging off. Or someone just put it on the cat's face before you drew the picture. I'm not sure what the orange things in the backround are. Flowers, right? I'm not saying it's bad that you faded it the bg out a bit, (i atrually really like when people do that XD) It's just kind of hard to identify. cX

1. the anatomy, :3 i'll give it a slid cause it looks pretty. But the front doesn't actually have a tuft of fur there. The arms actually are pretty close and strong. And the tail is a little clunky i recommend drawing the spine and the tail in one line. It makes it seem more naturally fluid. Also the back legs... i sound like a hypocrite saying this but skeletons are your friends. but besides from that pretty good. 2. Lighting. The actually rays really do look 'oh mi god amazing' but how it hits the character is unlike the places. It should be very light on the edge then less so onwards. Making the cat with more shape and structure. You can do it by lowering the opacity on the lighting and do the simple shading (however you like) blocking in the dark and light. Leaving light in the dark. Then adding a white line along the edge. 3. Background. Unlike my background were you have little to no idea to what's going on, i know with yours. All it's missing is the detail. I recommend if your using layers, make the character out of sight then go full out with the background. The flower is out of nowhere but looks lovely. 4. Color. All i have to say is that, the sky isn't always blue and grass isn't always green. Brown cat's aren't always a consistent brown and green eyes aren't always green. Sorry, PK's color tut.
This is great, I like how the eyes aren't just one shade of green. These are some flaws I saw; -the tail is to strait and to high up on the backbone -the flower doesn't look like a flower when outlined in green -what is that orange streak in the bushes Other than those I think its great.
I like everything but the tail, which seems placed kind of high-up on the cat's back. It's a very warm, cute picture, and I really like what you did with the legs. (You got them in proportion very well.
The nose seems too .. button - y. It sticks out, while a normal cat's wouldn't. It also is MUCH too small. The curve of the muzzle is too sharp as well; A real cat's would be much more angled. I'd curve the forward - facing part of the cat's eye more outward as well. The mouth is too much like a human's, and I see you've reverted to a more human style. Fully connect the mouth to the front of the muzzle. The chin is too pronounced as well. Your cat has a chest, which real cats don't; cats have no collarbones and so it appears as if their forelimbs connect to their neck. Your cat's legs are really straight; they wouldn't be able to walk like that! Thepaws look a bit strange; they have only three toes (not counting the thumb - toe - things (for lack of a better word xD) The thumb - toe position is wrong on the right forelimb; it should be slightly more hidden. On to the back legs/hindqurters! The first problem I notice is that again, they're too straight. [link] This is the most accurate source I could find; it has many other helpful references as well! There should be three joints there - not counting the 'wrist' joint - yet I see none. The right hind leg is very off; it's much too close to the cat's other leg. I'd recommend moving it slightly to the left. The fluffy, upper part of the cat's left hind leg is too angled; round it out a bit. The tail is rather detached. It is too far left and I see no indication whatsoever that the tail is slightly behind the hindquarters. In effect, it looks like a slightly curved, furry pole extending from the top of the cat's butt. I'm assuming this is a kitten, based on its proportions.
Those are the only problems I see; I really like the lighting and such.
well... The back legs would be bent at a certain point, close to the body. Its front legs could be a little bent also, with an elbow. Its tail should be more connected to its back, as if it were kinda connected to the spine, its nose looks like it is falling off, and the back leg tward the left is a little weird looking, as if it weren't part of the body anymore...
