tread silently by drachenmagier tread silently by drachenmagier
Mostly done while listening to either Hanghang Music ( [link] ) or Leona Lewis "My hands". I really like that song. ( [link] )

Just wanted to draw something calming.

@design: Since I was asked a lot about it, it's ok to use the design non-commercially. Please credit me too when you work with this design. ^^

A very woundefull done work. That was the first what I thought, when I saw this amazing picture. The soft vacillation of the anatomy impress on a realy special way. I was impressed when I saw how simple but wounderfull the background is. You have done a realy good work with this picture! How simple it is, so beautifull is it in the same way. Buut enough from this, let us go to the complete critique. :)

:star::orange::star:The Anatomy:star::orange::star:
I absolutly love the way you draw the neck! Even the back send a naturally prettiness to the person who look at it.
The way you draw the legs is very special and an absolutly eyecatcher. The deer's antlers are very amazing done, I personaly love the way you draw the "waves" in this antlers. It looks like a godness from a wood or something like this.

:star::orange::star:The Colors:star::orange::star:
The colors are very well choosen! I love the way you show the blue in all ways. Dark or bright. In combination with the yellow it create a very good colorgame. The complete pack of the colors cause that the person who look at this amzing picture will be send into a world were everything is quite and in peace with itself and the world. It give the person that feeling that everything is okay - even when only for a few moments. But those moments are the way of art. The ambition which every artist should have. To open the heart of the person who see the picture and open him/her for a few seconds the way to an other, goog, world.
Very good done. Very good...

:star::orange::star:The Background:star::orange::star:
The background is a very important part of this picture, I think. He do much to let this picture become, what it finally is. I'm realy bewitched because of the lightning effect you have created with the yellow. And I dont know how and I dont know why, but I know that you have a realy good eye for the colors you use - and how you use them.
I hope we will see more of those art.

:star::orange::star:The complete pack:star::orange::star:
Now I normaly write what I think about the complete picture, but I have the feeling that this is not essential. I have said what I think about it before I start the critique completly...But I will give you afew stars more than the list on the right side has.

maximum are 3 stars....

Anatomy: :star::star::star:
Color: :star::star::star:

Background :star::star::star:
Complete: :star::star::star: + :star:

The only thing what only get a double star was the idea, beause I think...I dont know how to say, but I have the feeling that I miss something on it. But I think that can be, because it is so simple done. Simple but very good done!!!


I hope the critique is good done too and acceptable,my english of course too!o,0" I hope...

With greetings and in respect for your art...your:iconabilenciumsouldancer:

This is a rather stunning drawing of a beautifully spiritual creature that has been brilliantly executed with the right choice of mediums and colour.
It reminds me of the Forest Spirit from Studio Ghibli's 'Princess Mononoke'.
The colours are icy, biting and beautiful. They really work well with the curves of the animal's body and antlers.
It's a very creative, imaginative piece and could easily be used for character animation design.
All in all, this really sets a specific mood and atmosphere. I'm immediately chilled to the bone (in a good way) just by glancing at this.
My only criticism is that it needs a little more contrast between the light and shade. The shaded areas need to be darker for the creature to really stand out.
A stunning drawing though. Top notch!
