The other day, it occurred to me that one of the biggest needs of the deviantart community at the present moment is art criticism-a lot of young artists need someone to critique their works and help them improve. To that end, I am willing to devote some of my time and energy to give critiques to anyone who is willing to pay. Each critique costs 400 points ($5 USD), and will be an honest, unbiased attempt to help you improve your work. Honest critiques will be an even mix of pointing out good features and pointing out areas for improvement. For some idea of what kind of critiques I give, you can look at my body of work, on my home page. These will not be fluff jobs (not that I'm above doing that, but it costs three times as much), so don't expect either over-the-top praise or hyperbole. I will not offer refunds on critiques (you pay me for my opinion, and I will give you that), but I will offer refunds or rewrites (maximum of two per work) for fluff jobs. Now, I will still do the occasional free critique on works I find particularly interesting or noteworthy, and I will make occasional comments without any charge. To request a critique, send me a note with the subject "Critique request", and we can arrange it.

The dimension of music by Ziano-rein
To start with the positive aspects of this works, it has a nice, ethereal floating feeling to it with the flowing garments and hair standing up as if she were falling or underwater. I like the shadowing on the subject for the most part, and you seem to have a good grasp of proportion, although her left foot seems a little long to me. The backdrop of birds against a starry sky is good, but the blank white spaces at the corners of the work are rather distracting-I think it would work better if the entire backdrop was a starry sky, or if it were at least a dark color, so that the foreground pops more. The composition seems well laid out to me, save again for those blank spaces, and the figure looks quite dynamic. As for areas for improvement, perhaps you could establish the light source on the figure a little better, so that it's clear which direction the light is coming from. The back leg could also use a little more definition, as it looks like an outline more than a limb. These are minor complaints, though, and overall it is a fine piece. I hope this helps you improve it.

I am William Burns, an artist based out of middle Georgia. I make ink drawings, in a style I call Linear Abstraction. I make some digital works, but that isn't my focus. I am concerned primarily with patterns and textures, not color or shapes. I sell prints of all my works, available here or at my Fine Art America account, and I will sell my originals (those I still possess) to interested parties. PM me or email me (Promethicon@gmail.com) if you want to discuss buying an original.
