So here's an attempt at some crits
Junco I like the Image, very disneyish-evil, sly animal. But I don't see the "chambers" that it uses to move or any distinct characteristics of a "bark-eater". Did you type the description before or after you made the picture?
ToddBushman I get no sense of scale in your picture, it feels like a small creature in the picture, but the claws can capture "very large" animals? Also mind using too many different techniques to render the image.
Noro The texturing confuses me, it's very smooth but it's mostly molten lava? Hm, I like the creature, concept, rendering. but I think it's more like a fiery lizzard then an "Elemental".
Rob Powell Nice concept, nice texturing the veining of the body must've taken ages! I would've liked to see more of a "guarding" pose/gesture considering the description, also the "tube-shape" of a the serpent seems a bit irregular at some parts.
Whiskey sour Derped at the fire-elemental, also the water-elemental was nice, but it seems like you cared more for some parts and didn't care so much about others. Mind the color-composition and consistency as the colors vary alot also.
Madame Mister I don't really understand the concept but I can always go for a scorpion-wolf. But you must mind where you want your focal-point(s), meaning "where do I want the viewer to be looking?" Use contrasts in sharpness, light and color to help the eye of the beholder.
Vegasmike This is a good piece in so many ways that I think it's more of an "artists"-style-critique rather than a general crit. I (note. I) would've added more atmosphere to the creatures or increased the saturation/contrast in the foreground to try to scale up the creatures themselves. (Also I would've gone for a different frame-color as the red line don't match well. (YES I'M NITPICKING!))
Abee DUDE MAKE SURE IT READS BETTER!!!!!
Firith She seems very demonish/evil in contrast to the description where it says that a believer has called her to bring life and happiness to his homeland. Maybe the setting could've been different. Show us when she's breathing life into the dead soil. Cool contrasts around the head though!
Grumbleputty I DIG the concept of it being a masterless elemental scouring the wastelands. The colors confuse me when it comes to the scale of the creature though, alot of saturated colors everywhere contradicts the otherwise stale sky. Also I would mind adding so many individual strands of grass, it makes the ground messy and draws focus from the creature itself.
Aburnier There so much to look at! (which I like) But I would like to see more.. consistensy in the creature rendering. There's holes, small horns, muscles, anorexic ribs, anatomy differs, maybe it should've had more fetures in the same (may I add: AWESOME) style as the fins and watery extrusions. Also, if this is on land the creature most be friggin huge considering the background shoreline thus making it a bit... unfit for "streams and tide pools"
Ashess I like the visible skeleton but I think it's too visible around the ribs. Also I don't really understand the highlights in the face and the lightbeams in the blue background. Cool cocky concept though, expression of the face is great.
Tsabu That's one NASTYASS fire-roach! I think they're really cool designs just.. unfinished. Take them further, if only in small parts to draw the viewers attention.
kora COOL concept, like the backwards facing mouth. But what happened to the colored version that you showed in the WIP-thread? Also what is the purpose of the tail-brim and is there a way to make the fire-part a larger part of the creature itself?
Noun Haha wobble wobble! Crits: I lack textures, what is it made of? how does it work/move?
Gammagrey HUGE! Or it seems huge, meaning there should be some more atmospheric effects. Also, the melting rock could perhaps share more similarity to magma and have more.. random shapes as you're describing it. Like that the front "paw"(?) looks like the entrance to a large cathedral.
Scorge WOAH! (enough said.) My only crit is that I'm having trouble reading the depths of the picture, where is the creature positioned compared to the horseman?
ChromaticCodex Like the hammerhead-tailfeather air-creature! Also I LOVE the fire-creature, it really looks like it's having a FEAST on that molten vein of magma. Great concept! I do not, however, get the earth/water ones. Crits: Try to make them even more finished (shape-wise) while minding your colors. Once again, LIKE on that fire-one.
Bertling Cool concept where the elemental is an alchemical creation, looks unfinished though, the background should've been changed to something with more depth.
Cool stuff guys!!!!
