The Forest Spirit by PenguinEatsCarrots The Forest Spirit by PenguinEatsCarrots
Download for a better view!!

This is the cover for my short story for my creative writing project!
on the left is Bahari and the right is VitaJoka!
This was really hard.. and i mean really hard
trying to draw Bahari was super difficult cause i suck at people XP
and shading VitaJoka (ima call him VJ) was hard with all his fur DX
and plus the bg i tried to make it look good xD trees are a pain haha
but overall i LOVE how this came out!

Pleaaase! give me some critique on this one! ik i ask for critiques all the time but this one i want one on the most!!

both characters belong to me! as does the art!

I'm not that great at critiquing so bear with me. Firstly the dragon's waist is a bit too thin unless it was intended. Also the grass would be a bit more bushy-including the clearing-normal grass wouldn't completely flatten, some of it would stick up. Now on to the forest, you need to either darken the space behind the trees or add more trees unless it's a cliff or something...

For the child, her head is a bit too big I noticed and she could use some shading where the dragon's shadow hit her. The grass could also use some shading underneath both of them. I hope this helps X3

This is a striking piece of art the two characters look so beautiful in this cover
The background is very artistic an the shading is well done the creature ((forgot name xD)) looks so great, the girl looks great but Anatomy needs a bit more practice but it fits well in the picture and the dress looks very beautiful I was watching you draw great program by the way but I suggest that you use paint tool Sai it works well in shading hope you find this helpful
:3 your a great artist and I hope your project goes well :3

Reminds me of Shishigami from Princess Mononoke... even if you didn't intend that, this is a great picture.

I never got to finish Princess Mononoke ^^' want to though!
Actually in all honesty I based VitaJoka (the dragon) off Haku from Spirited Away <3
Thank you though~
