comments too. For those who are critics, artists, or just helpful in the community, we now offer something in return
for all that you do - be it helping the participants of ProjectComment
, or the group itself!
This weekly article focuses on the amazing deviants in the deviantART community, who have given fantastic comments, through excerpts of those comments, artwork by the deviants themselves, and much more! Your support in
the article would be much appreciated.
Spotlight CommentersThese commenters are determined by you through Nominations (read below for more information). Each month, we will be selecting a couple of amazing commenters based on the comments we have seen in our gallery submissions and elsewhere on deviantART. Anyone on deviantART is applicable for this feature!

"Although most of the issues have been addressed by other member, I'll give you input on the horse statue. For starters the horse is out of proportion, now to your defense, horse anatomy is rather hard to draw. I highly recommend you define the knees and the joints more. This photograph of a sculpture of Leonardo Da Vinci is an excellent reference for the position of the front legs. www.leonardo-da-vinci-biograph…
I also recommend you to expand the belly and draw the shoulder in a curved shape of an egg or a waterdrop. The back legs should not be visible or you could change the position of the two people and expand the base of the statue. A horse is mainly composed out of round and elongated oval shapes and curves. This photograph is in a similar pose as the horse in your drawing. api.ning.com/files/NV-HMk2Dfwb…[...]

It was that time of the week again, to be a guest of a remnant of the past. I wandered the desolate landscape, withered sienna leaves crunched beneath my feet, my whispering steps hardly disturbing the quietude. Hard rain clattered on the foliage and the ground, expelling the reign of silence.
The crisp air nipped my drenched quivering figure as I hung my head low. A breath of warm air dampened from my mouth. My gaze flicked up to the pouring slate grey sky. The rain did not seem to end. Curling my lips in disdain, I mentally cursed myself for my lack of foresight and walked further down the pathway. It had to rain on this particular time of the day.
My surroundings were not in my favour either. It seemed as if I had sauntered an endless path. The grey horizon was overcast by bare trees. I

"I love the coloring and shading done. It's spectactular. The water is also done very well. You have just enough detail in it to give the effect of water. The background columns are possibly my favorite part as they are done so well. The work on the hair is also spectacular. You did not do that bad for the back of Brienne's head, you may have made her face a little too short and round judging by the cheekbones but it's not really that off. Her spine looks a bit too pronounced unless that is supposed to be water dripping down. If so it would need a bit more shine/transparency to it. Her shoulders are a bit uneven but mostly this is due to that her left shoulder curves too harshly and creates a shelf instead of a slope. As for Jaime his anatomy is very well done. His mouth is a little too small for his face in my opinion. You've definitely managed to make him look weary and haggard which fits as he's been through hell before this scene takes place and is still quite in hell.[...]

"I love black and white ink painting so this instantly caught my eye. You have a good mix of values to show dimension, and the soft shading looks very nice. You've also done the black hand well by having faint white lines to distinguish the edges of fingers, so it doesn't turn into a black blob.
The falling snow looks very natural, in that I didn't even think about it until I was considering your medium. I guess that's the white acrylic. It has a lovely, soft feeling and gives the whole scene a sense of muffled beauty. I didn't realize they were lying down in snow at first, but J-Grey made a good suggestion to add shadow on the ground around them. That would make it clearer. [...]
