this is a great piece of art and  it is amazing to me because how you put it together from the  big to small details in it ,  to the rich color color layout with  the sharp edge to smooth edge  it make it pop out to the screen and with the well play warm to cool colors willing catch my eye  and the flow of it again amazing beautiful piece of art:)

Beautiful! I love all the colors in this piece, it's such eye candy, I could stare at it for days! Maybe that would be my only critique too: it is VERY busy. It's hard to find a focus in this piece because so much is going on, while it is really gorgeous to look at an explore, it might be nice it was a little less chaotic.

Your color choice is stunning! It all works together so well, if I say everything it'd be a giant rant-ish thing about the great colors and such. :iconeheheplz:

oh man, the colors and motion in this is spectacular! The subtle variation in each figure's expression and design is lovely, as well. It's a little hard to tell where the characters end and the background begins, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing? It adds to the energy of the whole. I really love the black&gold wave pattern along the top -- it's a really nice moment of calm repetition in all the chaos. *u*

I really love this! Such a beautiful array of colours and detail is present, but you have still managed to make the faces stand out. I love the stories here - they all seem to be interacting, but perhaps there is conflict?

The one thing I would pick up on is the face of the lady with the red hair. Her eyes are not proportional which makes her look a little maddened...

KEEP UP THE AWESOME!

I'm loving this so much! oh my, the expressive colors, the color scheme and how the mixture of color create such a beautiful atmosphere is amazing and unique! I told you already how much I love your style and I'm so impressed that you did such an amazing job drawing my OCs :D I can clearly recognize them and you also put them together in different poses and perspectives which I really really like! Thank you so much for drawing this awesome work!!

Thank you dear! :love: thanks for such an awesome compliment from an artist like you :iconblushingplz:

I was sort of worrying about Dara's feature though, she's a bit aggressive (?) for her original personality, like her cloth or expression looks rather proud and noble than shy Gushu haha xD;~ Meh I was thinking of an empress of sea, Yongwang in female form or devine SunNyeo/hangAh type of concept so it might came out differently xD;~
However other characters look just as I expected on the original concept! I'm glad you like it though :iconepiclaplz:

leinef Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh don't worry about that xD She looks older and that's fine for her then ;)
Pride and noblesse fits her too. I really love that you were thinking of Yongwang concept since I think of her like that.
Really, I love this work :)

This is beautiful! The shadows are very lifelike, and there's a great variety of colors! :D
The shine you put in their hair looks beautiful, and your style is great!

However, I feel as if the piece is a bit crowded. The problem is, there's not one thing that makes the piece too busy, it's just a ton of little things that combine to make this just a little too crowded. Perhaps you could add more black in the piece, just to give some distinction from the people to the background.
Does that make sense? I don't really know how to describe it...

But other than that, this piece is wonderful! The colors are bright and really stand out. Keep up the good work!

Don't get me wrong, but I've got to be a bit harsh with this one. Although the individual bits are fine, the composition is too chaotic. It's hard to focus on much.
I keep getting drawn only to the bottom right, since the rest is so all over the place.

Good job, but a shift in balance would've helped.

:iconsangrde:
Sangrde Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012   Digital Artist
Thanks for the critique. I'm agreed, especially the upper right part.
maybe I should have given more space on individual ones so they look more clean and balanced. I started with only one character and added two more but then program I'm using didn't let me go over the current size so I was like, stuffing everything up in small canvas ;ㅁ; haha ^^;
