Who knows, Am I falling apart? by Taluns

:iconjnredmon:
I will admit that is is not your most original of creatures - for the most part, it's just a goat, whereas you usually have much more unique dragon-like monsters in your gallery. But the story behind it, the concept of the vine tunnel between worlds, and the idea of showing the demon mid-transformation more than makes up for that. I admire that you took the time to actually come up with a mythology based around this character, instead of just painting a bloody goat like many others would. As usual, your technique is absolutely flawless, and the picture is dark and haunting. For some reason my eye keeps going to that gap in between his neck and his body - it's extremely creepy but awesome at the same time. Amazing work as usual.
Oh, and also, MoonEye is not a dumb name. It is an epic one.

Ah yes, I will admit it isn't a very complex design. I'll have to work out something unique when I finality his design then!
I'm glad you enjoy my dragon work, although I wanted to try out something new for once, and well...I've never drawn anything goat-like before! I want to practice a wider range of animals so I don't limit myself to one species c:

But thanks very much for taking the time to write this critique! It's my first one, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I'm honestly glad you enjoy this piece after all c:

Thanks again~

Oh, I should have mentioned that. I DID like that you were branching out in terms of species. I'm really really sorry if I was being overly-critical, I didn't mean to be. This was the first critique I've ever written. Seriously, I can't stress enough that this picture is amazing. I love it. I just found that you did less with manipulating the creature's anatomy than you usually do. I'm sorta used to seeing extra legs and eyes and body markings on the stuff you paint.
Thank you for accepting my critique!

Oh no, it's fine! I understand what you mean, I usually do exaggerate things until they look crazy XD (I'm glad you like that aspect! It's really fun to let your imagination go wild)
Seeing as he's a demon-goat-creature, I can bend the rules on his appearance c:
This is giving me some ideas already!

And no problem, you brought up some valid points, and accepting that is they key to improving c: So no worries, I really should be thanking you XD

Oh, okay! Thanks! You didn't exaggerate, I was just worried that I had made it look like I thought less of your work than I actually do. Seriously, it's epic. :D

Oh no, not at all (: It's a critique after all, so I don't mind if people are honest and harsh in them!

But really, thanks for saying so! :)
