Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-03
SATYR 2 by *Yayashin ( Featured by mamiffer )
There is one major flaw in this piece, which is the far leg of the satyr. It's missing a segment, which looks strange even without the comparison of the other leg, but even more so with it. The line you currently have with the leg is good for moving the eye around the page, so keep that in mind if and when you add the appropriate section to the leg. Also, the upper portion of that leg, near the arm, is simultaneously in front and behind the arm. adding some fur in front of the arm will fix that easily.
These are the only major flaws though, and I feel the image is extremely successful otherwise. Great job!

(also, I apologize for posting this in the normal comments first. I don't critique on DA often, and didn't know I needed to click the "Write a crit" button)

Same as the first critique. The left leg is bent opposite that the joint is supposed to go. The right leg looks great. I understand what pose you wanted to achieve, but it's hard to get that pose with an animal leg. And I don't have any ideas to fill in that area with his leg, because his leg wouldn't be able to bend like that. Only the hip... I You could re-position the leg and try adding another object in that corner to balance. Love to see more of your work though! That is the only thing that catches my eye, everything else is gorgeous! The women are gorgeous, and the color is amazing! I love the oranges and blues are reds. It's very vibrant, but dark as well. The texture and lighting are used well too! :)

Really awesome work, in spite of the fact that it looks like his left leg is broken. :P
