EDIT: Wow thanks for the DD! that was really unexpected O_O

I rushed this a bit. One day I'll go back and fix it.

I feel like I've been neglecting my dA a little...

In case anybody was wondering about the brief disappearance: it's really nothing to worry about.

Fascinating concept. As I peruse the details, I feel as if I'm picking up clues about the story behind the scene! Well done!

Hey Aozo!

Sorry I didn't get to this till now - have also been swamped with work. Am actually taking a break from painting my mother's Christmas present. So, onto the critiquing! :D

Can't tell you how happy this makes me to see you work on the female figure as well as the background. I'm appreciative since it means you're taking my critiques into consideration when doing art, and I'm truly grateful.

Let's start with the female figure. You're getting better: slender figure, not as masculine, etc. I'm just a little curious about her overall pose. Is she squatting or sitting? It's a little unclear at the moment, and needs to be pushed further. Also, her body is curving to the right and very forward. This is fine. Just make sure she is still balanced.

As for the overall balance of the picture, it looks rather good. I tilted the picture so the horizon line would be level, and drew in lines to see how well everything worked. There's nothing I can critique on - great work!

Foreground needs to be further developed to help us see all the different plane changes. The metal slabs on the bottom left of the picture are foreground (from my understanding), the sled (?) and your characters would be midground, and rest is background. Please correct me if wrong so I can help you with how your picture reads. Your understanding of color and atmospheric perspective is good. I would just push it a little more so we can really read those plane changes. So more tones and tints in the background (not a lot).

Detail on the sled and man's clothing are looking great. Shapes are solid, and read well - keep going at it. :)

Anatomy of both characters and statues are looking good. Clothing on man looks great and read well - especially loving the folds and overlaps. For the girl, it needs to be further developed. The girl has very fair skin, and the dress is white. However, there should be a distinction that one is dress and the other is skin. As of now, it looks like the two are morphing together, which am guessing is unintentional. Just have a clear edge (show overlap) and should fix it right up. Fold near her waist are looking great.

Kept critique relatively short since you plan to work on it further, and may already see potential changes (since this was posted over a month ago). Keep up the great work, and I look forward to seeing the changes!

I thought that skin and dress were supposed to morph together
especially since it's on her arms too

I'm not sure whether the morphing look was intentional or not, which is why I pointed it out (just in case). :)

oh okay, I was just sharing my opinion on the matter
