Critique – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

THE GOOD – What really works for this picture is the idea and the execution. Making a subject out of fire is very challenging and I salute you for the originality. The fire looks good and I think that choosing to do it in a forest at night was a great idea because the background really looks great and pulls the viewer in nicely.

THE BAD – If I had to call attention to something that needs work it would be two things. One, the anatomy of the fire girl could use a little work as could her pose though I think the two go hand in hand. I think her pose could have been planned a little better to make it more interesting; especially her hand which does not look like it would be in that position naturally. I think practice on anatomy would help it a lot. It is good and we can clearly see what it is and I know it is a semi-formless wisp of fire but some of the parts could have been smoothed out to make the subject look more feminine.

The second thing that could use a little improvement is the fire. It is good and I know how drawing fire digitally can be difficult. There are a lot of tricks and some people do it so good that they make it look easy. I also would not even attempt anymore without a tablet (though it looks like you did have one). Fire is tough but I think this is a good picture of fire; room for improvement but good.

THE UGLY – I only write about the ugly if I find something really wrong and I don’t see anything really wrong. The picture has a strong overall appeal and design as well as a stellar background that frames the entire piece; very impressive.

What do you think?

The piece its self is an excellent concept. I love the fiery hair, and the face looks great! The colour scheme you have chosen for the background blends perfectly.

However, I must agree with the last critique about the anatomy. Personally, I don't think that there are too many flaws. Fire can take any shape, which I think fixes that problem.
Last, I think that the fire looks a little 2D. Like its been placed. Maybe more work with the lighting would really make it pop! Perhaps adding more yellowish tones to the figure, would fix it, and maybe even some red.

However, Only after a real close look can I notice these. So well done!
I really love the piece!
And it shall remain in my favorites for ever ;D
Keep it up!

You know what's interesting about this picture? Despite the fact that it's fire and therefore can be dangerous, you still somehow made the spirit have an air of gentleness. Like it captures both the good and bad of this particular part of nature. :)

Love how you made the fire look, it's a really good job, and the way the fire forms her body is amazing, but the hair looks a bit weird. It doesn't look as lively as the rest of the flames somehow.

ah! I love it! beautiful! I was wondering if you'd allow me to use this in a teaser trailer I'm making for my novel? I'm not making any profit off of it and you will receive proper credit. Other vids I've made, using photos from deviantart w/ permission are here : [link] and here : [link] This image would be used for another trailer for my novel called Zirconya: The Sage of Aluh'Nehn. Let me know if it's okay! Thanks!

Certainly fine by me. :) Great little vids.
