Commented on Glimpse of the City by Shasta-Rose.

Glimpse of the City by Shasta-Rose
"Interesting photo! I like the title you've chosen for it, it suits the photo very well!

It's a very busy photo, which works for your benefit in this case, I think. Since you're not focusing on one thing in particular, it's nice to have a lot of detail that will keep the viewer's attention. I feel like, with this photo, you noticed one thing and then your eye is drawn to the next, and the next, etc etc. Wonderful work there :nod:

I noticed that the photo is a bit blurry, however, and that limits the extent of detail we can see. Was this a handheld shot? If possible, try leaning against something or supporting yourself so you can be sure to get the sharpest photo possible :aww:

Or, try using a tripod or monopod if you have one available.

Hangin' in a Hammock: Color Version by ANBUElite5 :thumb327938045: Starlight Forest by stargateatl :thumb323920280: Ch.1: F.R.O.S.T    The sound of cheers thundered through the area. Scary glares flew from one corner to another and daggers were sent from the final match-up. Thoughts plagued the rooms such as, 'Who's gonna win?' or 'This is the final yet!' Not to mention, 'If he wins, its the end of the world...'
    As the final struggle came into gameplay, a sudden thud shook the surface and the victor's voice howled and volumed out the other chattering.
    "In your face, you bastard! Hahahahahaa!"
    As a dreaded face appeared over our hero's face, the victor stood from the civilized lunch table and walked off in a humorous manner.
    "I knew I shouldn't have challenged him in arm wrestling..."
    Lord Saif, or Saif, slouched down in his chair. He could not believe that he had just lost in a game of Arm Wrestling. He was certain that he could win against the school bully. Well, whatever, no skin off his nose. He is in his white dress shirt with a bl

Natural Escence by Wassermoth my lady cometh by chrisravensar :thumb332056189: Second Street       El stands under muted chrome lights, legs splayed apart and left hip cocked out like the jagged end of a lipstick smear. The soft undercurrent of voices drifts from the club crowd up to the stage, quiet murmured conversations below the chink of glasses and clicks of the mike stand slotting into place. If she listens close enough she can almost hear the bare echoes of a young man's laugh, a woman's soft tinkling sigh, the swell of a family's conversation.
       "All ready," the man before her grunts around the toothpick hanging out the corner of his sun-cracked mouth. El reaches a hand over to tug at the length of color-faded silk knotted around her left wrist, stepping forward to take the place he vacates. The same hand rises to wrap around the cold silver shaft, glossed lips parting as she ghosts them towards the microphone.
       The crowd has dropped in volume, calm falling over the haphazardly arranged three-legged stools and half-rickety tables. It's a quiet she's felt
Turn On The Dark
When fragile hopes and fears collide
It waits for you on the other side
I can feel the tremors in my soul
I've grown afraid of the masquerade.
Barely holding on, I'm losing control
Wide awake, I confide in the shade.
Sinking so slowly down the drain
Much like the purple pill I swallow.
A voice unheard is a voice in vain
Black rain falls and teardrop's follow.
Shadows loom throughout the room
They cover my eyes like a veil.
Just flip the switch, it'll be over soon
Just pull the curtain over the pale.
The transition rattles my psyche at first
Yet it's a feeling I've always invited.
For when my body becomes submersed
I discover my worlds benighted.
I wonder how much time has past
Fading deeper into the stark domain.
A place like this, shows no contrast
But it's a place I must ascertain.
I call this smoke-filled cell a prison
That harbors questions of fruition.
But like a zombie, I have risen
To greet the face of my mortician.
I'm taken with its abysmal skies
Now I reap the chilling silenc

Commented on All My Love Is For You by cutie-lily.

All My Love Is For You by cutie-lily "I kinda disagree with previous commenter. Anime is not an excuse for unnatural poses, and this look VERY strange. but still, I got the idea, and it's the most important, so I can say you did well. I can definitely say you are able to share emotions through your art, this couple is so fluff-cuteness-romance, that I want to listen some happy music now. [...]"

Commented on White by AndreaChristenArt.

:thumb332604921:"Firstly, you need to improve your shading technique. The lack of it really shows, especially around the stem and the vase. I'm not an expert but I realise that your strokes should be shorter, softer, more even. Maybe you need a different pencil? This video could help www.deviantart.com/users/outgo… [...]"

Commented on Eye Study by hefeigal.

:thumb328114100: "The iris usually has a pretty thick darker or black line on the edge, it can be applied to your drawing to give it a natural/realistic look. Also, the color shouldn't be flat, remember the eyes contains liquid and it reflects light. To show a bit of the eye's luminousoity (even if you're observing the actual thing, the eyes will always look shiny, and deep in color.) never forget the gradient. [...]"

Nice, I never heard of that group before today. I'll definitely check them out. Thank you for sharing this journal entry with us.

As for the Q&A: I comment when something stirs me and/or I know I can help the artist improve upon their work. Sometimes it's as quick as a "Have you tried X to do Y? It might help make Z fit better." and other times it's more in-depth if I know they're up for my critique-rambles.^^

Happy Holidays! :hug:
