Liking the way you kept details coming through the waves. May have to use that idea in my next piece so consider it noinked :P

Colours looking good too, its not often pink works well in low colour pics but you pulled it off nicely :) nooishness not showing through at all lol.

Good stuff

I love the design but the most important thing is to get the scales right if they are off then the whole
drawing looks messy, they have to be very symetrical for it to work, and the waves could use some shading and flow, i,m not having a go at you just trying to help, you have great ideas and i love any japanese/asian work keep at it you are doing great looking forward to seeing more designs. Cheers

Thanks a bunch, man. Ya eventually I'll fix the scales. The important part is I know they are flawed. But thanks I appreciate your comment!!

Love the choice of colors! Something about it looks a little fuzzy now though. Either way, I love it!

Thanks man! I believe the fuzziness would be my shitty printer settings since I didn't want to wait and hour to scan it at top DPI lol

Pastel pencils... never used them. I love pastel chalk, though.

Nice design. I think you're onto something with these pastel pencils. :D

I love how the background makes the dragon koi the main focus in a depth and perception that is really cool looking.

Good work!

You're quite welcome! I try to notice more things... I always have, but after studying art appreciation it's easier to point out everything with the right terms, I suppose. ;)


PS -- Thanks for the llama. Unsure of what they do still. :D But thank you.
