    Great job! I like your choice of colors, and the sense of action (I can really sense the motion of the tiger's paw). To improve it I think you could work on the texture of the tiger's fur (looks a bit too smooth along the torso), and perhaps add some more red to the figure to help her pop out more. Anyways nice pic, and I look forward to seeing more.

    really nice, though the girl is kind of lost there, can`t make much of her.
    loved the composition and the brush work.

    Nicholas: hey dude thanks a lot for taking the time
    to comment on my work, about the furr its just that I
    like to stylize things, that is why I maked the tiger
    so smoth, but i get what you say so I amde sum
    sumble changes to make it look a little less smuth
    as far as the girl fighting goes you see the thing is that the
    tiger is the star on of the show in this painting
    that why the girl is less detailed, but I think you are rigth
    even tho she should not be the focus, she needs to be separed
    form the background a bit more, so I make the background a
    bit ligther to make her pop out a bit more
    thanks a lot for the constructive critics man,
    You have been very helpfull

    Soul:Child: hehe I liked you scrip for descripcion of
    the action of the painting :d Im glad you liked it
    and thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Chuck,mate.: I just maked some color & value changes on the
    background and I think it looks better now, Im glad you liked
    the color scheme, thanks for taking the time to post.

    Well here it goes, i'm gonna make the negative comments only. (but keep in mind i'm not saying your a bad artist, cuz I really do LIKE IT!)

    1)the girls posture looks uncomfortable, and therefore isn't convincing.
    2)It could use some MAJOR atmospheric perspective, its all the same thickness.
    3)I understand your style in the tiger, but the fur is not relevant enough. The only thing that gives away its a tiger is the stripes. Give it some fuckin furr!!!! I know u try different style, but make it more tiger like!! it'll help!
    4)And I just dunno about the third eye in the middle of the forehead, just looks too cheesy.

    Overall, I love your piece, don't get me wrong, I just want to give you the RAW critique. Please don't take it wrong, keep up your good work, and practice more!!! gj!!

    I don't pray because I don't want God to know where I'm at.

    Um..I guess I'll counterpoint some of the comments.

    The lack of "fluffiness" in the fur doesn't bother me much at all. Sure, it's a furry critter, but the smoothing of the body compared to the fur texture in the head definitely places the body behind that head. It solidifies it in a definite space within the piece. If you added any fluff, I'd say tack it on the tail. Because it "pops out" into the light behind the rest of the tiger's flanks in shadow, a touch of texture there would do more than covering the whole body in texture. Just make sure it doesn't flatten the whole tiger against the picture plane.

    MY comment on the tiger would be the lower jaw; it looks too elongated compared to the upper part of the mouth. It could be the perspective, it doesn't look wrong per se, but just something to evaluate.

    It has its strong and weak points, but the one thing that I think actually detracts from the piece is the figure of the woman. I still can't tell exactly what's going on with her body. I can get a feeling, and I can place limbs where they are visually, but she feels disjointed to me.

    Overall though, rock on. I definitely get the feeling you're trying to get across, so I got the important parts. Just another hour or so of work to add that extra bit of polish would give it that extra bit of punch.

    sodomizer: ok, he he thanks for the
    tearing apart kinda critic,
    About the girl, I still need to work in my dinamics
    ill get there soon enougth tho ill leave this one
    as it, but ill try to make it better in the next image i make
    About the atmospheric prespective, I thought I did
    a more less ok job on that, but ill keep it mind to make
    my atmopheres more convinving next time.
    As far style goes, its more of a treat of mine
    I like the way the tiger looks, I am not aiming for photo
    realism here, but more of an realistic exagerated reality.
    the jewel well, I like to put jewels on my creatures
    that just, something I like.
    thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Clockwor: thanks for the counter critics, ill keep i mind
    the tail thing in the next pic I make, Im glad you liked
    the sence of deep, the jaw, mmm, you migth be right ill check it,
    as far a girl goes, I get your point, but in my experince the
    more I try to fix someting, the more I kill the freshness of
    an image (at least that happens to me a lot) so i decided to leave
    this one as it is, I discoverd that body dinamics is something
    that cant be tackled, utill you have made a good chunk
    of bad drawings, so its not practical to keep on fixing
    something, that I cant properlly fix now, I could make her
    very acurrated anatomy wise, but ill kill the dinamics in process as
    well because I am still learnig how to make things he he
    long story short, I am gonna leave this one be, but I DO apreciate
    the critics and commets a lot, and now I know what I should
    work on in my next image

    After taking so time apart form this image I tryed to fix the
    girl fighting the tiger and I think I have camed to a
    result i can live with (after seen that almost all the persons
    I know have told me that me that the girl just was not working
    I caved in and spent the last three days figureing out a better pose)
    THAKS all for the great comments and for all the VERY
    constructive feed back this has been one hell of a learning experince.

    I saw this one at the top of the list, had to come back and check it out.

    She definitely works better now! Damn man, it gives that area of the piece a whole lot more pop, instead of asking "What the hell is going on there?" I wanna get up close to see the action. Well done!
