Commented on Svearicus the faerie by TossarN.

Svearicus the faerie by TossarN
"Nice work! The wings have a beautifully translucent texture, and the blue looks great!

However, I feel as if the torso is a bit awkward. The angle of the head suggests a 3/4 view, but the torso is drawn head-on, which creates a rather strange pose. I'd suggest making the right (his left) shoulder obscure the chest slightly, since it wold be closer to the 'camera' than the other. :D Personally, I'd make the shoulders a touch smaller as well, but that's just my opinion.

Also, I'd recommend making the left (his right) eye a bit smaller, as his head is turned slightly. Like his shoulder, the left eye is farther away from the 'camera' than the other, so it would be a bit smaller.
That was a bit long...let me know if I can clarify anything!

Lucky Draw Selection

I Am a TreeI am a deciduous tree
Growin from my roots individual-ly.
From the stump
Up from the trunk
And out sproutin' branches
Reason for each season
Spring's in.
I blossom,
Shower me in flowers
Because I feel damn awesome.
Squirrels cuddle me-
Synonymous to girls lovin' me-
No need to get the mud off me-
Livin off of the puddle Be-
Cause, I got chlorophyll
On the forest hill
And any inch of growth
Is more than a chore I killed.
Fall's around the corner, and I can still breathe,
But it hurts because all my leaves...leave.
Weather's ranging, colors changing.
Like an abstract painting.
Picture framing
Leaves to the floor
The wind and rakes score.
I have no eyes but I can feel a departure,
Then winter hits the door, I become a skeleton
Any signs of life, I am repellin' it..
My branches broke 'cause they're delicate
My birds flyin' with seagulls, pelicans.
And it's so cold that my bark is sub-degree
Carry extra layers if you wanna come with me.
Dare me to sleep past February.
Spring's back

Hey Dad Look At Me by renen02 Ode to Botticelli by jodyharrington Stones by michael160693 AwakeningOn the first day, the day that I woke, all I could see was light.
It was a gradual thing, the awakening. Slowly I became aware of being, of existing, and the humming in my mind rose to a maximum. I lay there for a while, letting thoughts drift over my body, moving my fingers one by one. Then my eyes fluttered open and I could see nothing but whiteness. The gauzy blur faded and I was able to make out shapes: a door, a clock. I turned my head fractionally to the side to see a table, washed in white like everything else. No windows. There was a movement in the corner of my eye and then I felt a cool touch on my arm. I exhaled, then blacked out.
When I came to, I was greeted with a face. I drew in a sharp breath and it disappeared from my line of vision as I pushed away the layers of starched fabric pinning me down. I sat up. There was a figure standing by the door, facing away from me as if in thought. As it turned, I saw again that same face that had startled me, so full of hatred and co
A Matter of Time
A Matter of Time
You think Sandy's got vengeance in its eyes?
You see vengeance everywhere don’t you?
In the fast, wet winds churning around your Queens apartment
In the lightning flashes on Ocean Parkway where we walked once like a
Couple of refugees.
The waves will be taller than you, they’re saying
But I imagine you sitting on a grey dock somewhere
Oblivious of official warnings
Your dark wavy hair sticking to your forehead of scattered lies
And losses,
Your hard, careless body framed in endless brine.
I might not be allowed to love you anymore
But the rules of capturing, consuming and catenating happen to be
As fluid as that road where water now rushes in the direction of
Gaping news cameras.
If you think Sandy’s got vengeance in its eyes
Why don’t you stop hiding behind words and walls and webs
And have a staring contest with me?

Featured Commenters by VimislikArt & Riemea

These commenters are determined by you, the users, through Nominations (read below for more information). Each week we will be selecting a few of the most frequently or positively nominated commenters. Anyone on deviantART is applicable for this feature!


Commented on The Experimental by hefeigal.

:thumb319900225: "The feel that it gives in the start is perhaps slightly cliched - of not being able to enter a parents study... or perhaps a guardians study, but I am totally fine with it since such a general idea can be crafted uniquely like this work did. The little information about the code being the girl's birthday has its own effect on the reader (if thought about for a moment). Either it instills love for his girl or perhaps... a more sinister purpose as was unveiled. [...]"

Commented on shining through despair by luckydesigns.

shining through despair by luckydesigns"This is very nice shot. I really like the golden light. To me it's very peaceful :) I also like the combination of soft light and that thorny plant. The tree log next to the plant also adds to the picture. Everything is nice here. I only have some suggestions:

Try to crop one third of the picture from the left hand side. I think the plant itself is perfectly enough to say the story of this image. On the left hand side it's empty and nothing interesting.[...]"

Commented on Model project by PedroHenrique-2.

:thumb346050613: "I really like the concept behind this piece. I think that it's a really important statement about beauty and I like the ways that you've chosen to display them. I do think that some of the styles are a little strange. I know that in the fashion world there are often crazy outfits and styles that crop up, but some of these confused me a little in this picture. For me, it detracted a little bit away from the idea of perfection. [...]"

Wow, thank you for the feature! :3
Felizias Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can not realy tell how often I comment. :P I only comment on art that sticks out to be for some reason. Whether it be a style I've never seen before, an interesting composion or concept or maybe it's just a pose I like or something different from what the artist usualy creates. :)
This depends on time too, of course... ^^; But if you'd ask me to comment on one or a few pieces and wouldn't mind not knowing if I'll only write a short comment or a small critique I would most likely do it. :aww:
3wyl Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah.. yes, I get what you mean! I think it's a good thing.. mostly because you become selective then and.. yeah, it's better for us all if one is like that, no?

Sounds good! :D
Felizias Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, it can be realy bad if an artist wants to improve but her/his work is not "interesting" enough to get any attention or feedback. :P
3wyl Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's a fair point to consider. :plotting:
