Well I have a little more to object to this: 1. The wings have smudge marks, you should clear those. 2. The sun like pattern could have used a little more work, because they don't look like that xD Use warp tool from PS CSs I myself don't have warp so I usually do them by hand. 3. The wings do not fit in with the character because they share no irrization, especially from the fire. 4. That right hand looks really flat. A bit more chunkiness would do it good
You should stop seeing advices of improvement as jerkedness. Even if people don't request critique, light hearted advice is still necessary for a growing artist, which Forlenza actually IS, otherwise she'd just kick herself in the ars making the same mistakes again and again. And what I said is true, just cease seeing the deviation for it's WOW effect... I know it's heard, but you have to focus. Also if you think that was mean, you should have ~Ravenholm as a critique. I'm used to being chopped down bit by bit by her, so what I said is mild.
P.S. Stop white-knighting :/ Even the best need advice and directions from time to time It's not like `Artgerm is perfect at everything, because he's not, so is Forlenza. Truth doth be told.
