Commission for ~dracologistmaster

...Wow, this took so long. :faint: This is a commission of his two Umbreon characters, Shadow and Nebula. Good gosh, this took soooooo long because I had to fix so much. XD Plus, I wanted to make sure it was up to snuff seeing as it's my first commission ever and Draco helped a few of us out when we were in a bind with ~The-Light-Spirit's internet issue. Overall I'm extremely, EXTREMELY happy with this. :la: I hope you are too, Draco!

...AND EXTREME shoutout to ~ShiftingUniverse who helped me out a TON with the anatomy. ;A; Without you, this wouldn't have looked so good.

If anyone feels like critiquing this, I'd appreciate it lots. owo

You said you wanted to print this, Draco, so I'll send along the unwatermarked version after you see it. 8D

EDIT: Added waterfall spray and blue glow on grass.

EDIT 2: Brightened some stuff up. My computer screen was really bright when I made it. XD

I felt like critiquing this picture because you put a lot of work into this.I will say the good stuff and the stuff you can work on for next time.You have come along a long way from your first picture and this one which is a big achievement on its own.This background is one of the most detailed backgrounds I have ever seen you make.The river looks magnificent where you made the waves at the end of the waterfall and the dark to light colors as it comes closer to view.The tree and the cliff where the umbreon are is also very detailed.Plus the clouds and moon look very realistic for this picture.The glow and details on the umbreon is good and the shading you did on them gives them a slick, umbreon look to them.
Things I would work on for next time is the trees in the background should be alot taller, even if they are a distance from the trees they are still small from the angle this picture is aiming at.Though your background has surpassed many backgrounds you have done before there is a lot more things to improve on it which will take hard work and maybe checking out tutorials.The background is good but it could be even more realistic than it is now.Also the characters should stick out since they are the focal point of the picture.Overall I was impressed by this piece and expect to see some greater pieces to come!
What do you think?

Wow, this is amazing! O.O

The background is great- I especially love the tree and the water, because I have a hard time with both of those and your ability to draw them makes me jealous xDD The Umbreon are both adorable, and the soft glow around the rings really makes them stand out 8'D

Keep up the awesome work, Chai!

Oh so pretty! :la:

Critiquing? I'm pretty bad at this, but I'll try...

The Umbreons are looking pretty great, but I think you should make it just a little bit lighter, so you can see their facial expressions & accessories better. They kinda just blend together with the background trees and space. The waterfall looks good, and that spray you put on it makes it seem more lively. The trees seem kinda bland, but all trees are :'D. And the shading looks really well. I'm sure your future pieces are going to be freaking fantastic, because you put lots of time and effort into each piece you create. c:

Just my opinions, & I'm not a very good critique-r anyways. xD

o-o Oh wow, they are really dark. XD My brightness must have been way up last night. I'm gonna go back in and brighten them, because what I had done was imported the characters from their file and then darkened them to fit with the bg.

Trees are annoying to draw. ;A;

Thank you so much! Every bit of critique helps, and I think you did a pretty good job of it. :3
