holy shit, WOW. i fucking love this drawing. the first thing that i noticed was the vivid, vibrant colouring, and for good reason too. it's amazing. you made it so detailed and realistic and wow. i especially love the water and the sky. you even added the girl's reflection! her expression is great. what little lighting is there is great. the perspective is great. the only real problem i have beside the invisible bird's tails being kinda wonky is that the birds by the tree in the lower left are lazily drawn.

overall, this is extremely well done! great job!!! :icontwilightclapplz:

This is really great! I love the concept and the colours you used, nice and repeated, leads the eye around the image without making places too distracting. And I like the bird, it adds to the fairytale or dreamlike feeling of the image  - not everything makes sense there, and that's fine. The water is very well-drawn, and I really like how you did the clothes, and her hair especially - that looks great.
I think that the feather-detail on the wing that's resting on the water-surface is very neat. Maybe you should look a bit at real bird-wings to get  a better feeling of feather-placement, but I like the cloud-like feeling of the wings. It's a very calm image with neat details. Ah, did I mention the shoes? those are great.
And hey, it's good to be able to use a lot of time on your stuff. I am months about my works, but I prefer it that way. It's all about how you want to work and what feels best for you :3

Heh, you're very welcome.
Yes, right?! They're so organized, I got very, very surprised when I figured out, ahaha. Three parts of three layers, there's even almost always the same amount of feathers, it's all weird. Who should've thought that nature was so organized? :XD: I love to draw these messy piles of feathers as well, though. I have some flightless chacaters where I just draw these weird coats with feathers all over because it's fun :3

Alright! A new critique coming your way ^^

firstly, i really like this picture, the athmosphere is soothing yet interesting and, as always, i really like the way you shade your characters ^^ ok. i'll just divide my crit into parts.

Character, i love the hair shading, it's really soft and hairy (lol) but i do think you could have added a bit more color in the shadow (bwah, on again about them colors saix?). it's importen to remember one thing in this drawing since she's sitting next to a lot of _reflective_ water. and this thing is BOUNCED LIGHT. yes, you heard me. when light hits the water it bounce back onto the character as a weak secondary lightsource (i will include a tutorial about this strange shit). the wings are really pretty tho ^^ and the yellow circle above her head which i can't recall the name of should be more visible, i didn't spot it at first ^^

middleground (that is water and rocks): i personally think that the water might be a bit too blue, you could have included slight hue variation towards green or violet.. green might have been the best here, but violet often works best with water. i'm not saying the water should be violet, just some parts of it should be blue-violetish ^^ there should also be a greater difference in value, but then again this is quite comic styled so one shouldn't over do it (greater value range would have made it look more realistic, brighter highlights, deeper shadows and so on) the way the water falls o the rocks are a bit weird tho. in the places where they don't spill over, you could have made the rocks a little higher so it looked like they actually held the water back if you get me (oh god this sentence is horrible) and i think that more water should have fallen over so it doesn't look like there are "strands" of water like hair, but rather a wall of water. (sorry, i'm so bad at explaining stuff ^^') the rocks are pretty nice, they have some texture but lack bounced light (you can see that the ruin she's sitting on in the painting you referenced from has bounced blue light at the bottom and it looks smashing ^^) there could be some hue variation in the rocks as well tho :P

sky: the clouds are really nice, but you could have tried layering them or focusing the clouds in one area (which often looks pretty nifty) but this works quite well for this image anyways ^^ and i really love the texture in the sky, and how painterly it looks! the mist/clouds at the bottom is sloppy however, and this doesn't have to be a bad thing, but they're too sloppy and in a place where the viewer will look, because the mountain thing is there. 

Other things: birds; well i think they should have been black, slimmer and fewer because if they were darker they would stand out more ^^ this still works tho. The green mountain thing looks very nice, tho you could have added a tad more mist at the bottom to give it the feeling that they are "rising" out of the mist ^^

The bird: if i were you i would have removed it or changed it because it's transparent. while this can be a cool effect some times you have to show something solid in it because right now it just looks like it's a HUGE bird far faaaaar away and not something she's looking at. i didn't realize she was looking at it before i read the description ^^ the design of it is really nifty tho :P

this tutorial has a lot about water BUT he use color <3 in a great way!
more comicesque approach to water
one of my personal favs. a long tutorial about shading. wonderful stuff ^^ (bounced light)

if there is anything that was unclear, just ask ^^ I wish you luck.. now i better get back to my own practicing...

i don't think it looks weird lineless, it's just too plain, you need to vary the hue xD (or at least i think so lol) you can experiment tho! 

ha ha yeah i'm working on the same myself ^^  cooloooooors
