I love to draw and animate, and as such am studying 3D animation at East Tennessee State University. I've just now become a junior in the program, though I am a "super senior" thanks to having tried for a Fine Arts Degree at University of Tennessee. If not for the encouragement of those around me and the support of friends I wouldn't be where I am today.

Let's enjoy beautiful artwork together!

Fiora by SerinaGyrfalc
Fiora
• 05.21.2015 • Ink on bristol board •

A portrait of my sister's other dog, a beautiful dachshund named Fiora (we're Xenoblade fans apparently). She was really hard to capture because as she aged her pattern had changed, and for this piece I was specifically going for 'puppy Fiora.' I hope to do an adult portrait of her in the future.

FF7 REMAKE by Arlequinne
This.... this... is amazing! Speckling to accentuate light, great light source, clear background imagery, clear character, even linework that holds the character instead of taking away from it. Blurs where appropriate, as well as nice touch with where to put the signature. It's not taking away from the artwork and isn't in your face THIS IS MINE NO TOUCHY NO EDIT YAYAYA like some signatures I've spotted in other people's pieces. The odd brush strokes on the left threaten to take away from the picture but are balanced by those on the right and keep this piece together nicely. The color palette works so well in this! Everything is in a great harmony and is just a delicious piece of eye candy. Great job!

I can't give you much on originality, because many people are doing this pose with the announcement of the remake, but I will say this is the best one I've found so far!
Final Fantasy 14 Heavensward by Arlequinne
The picture runs the risk of being right heavy with the dark colors of the chocobos on the right conflicting with the light colors of the crystal on the left. A change to maintain balance would be to darken the crystal on the left to create more shade weight. The size and distance reference should hold because the crystal has the structures in place to show size comparison. Light source needs to be clarified, too. I can sort of tell it's coming from behind the two chocobos, but the buildings do not reflect the lighting and the shadows on the ground aren't clear.

Pros of this piece though are use of color, speckling to create light in the air, and expression of your figures. Too many times I've seen people do beautiful scenes and neglect the faces of the characters in them, or done beautiful figures and you can still see every single paint stroke of the background. This could easily be a promo for FFXIV, because while I am nit picky about some aspects of the picture, as a whole it holds together very nicely and invokes nostalgic memories of my time in FFXI and my still ongoing contemplation of joining FFXIV.

Good work, and keep improving!
