Ragnarok by Joyfool Ragnarok by Joyfool
Sorry, no title for now, its 3am and I can't feel my butt. '__________'
For Kamix Kali at GO as a prize to an auction I held last year. 

Bird reference:…

I'm not very pleased with the composition nor colors, but this is as best as I can do it for now. Please give me your critiques, thank you!

Ragnarok by Joyfool shows an adventurous scene! The use of the lighting gives the drawing a fantastic feeling.

There's excellent colour contrast with the blues against the orange ribbon belt and birds in the foreground. The clouds have a lovely ethereal feel to it adding to the sense of weightlessness. The line work is both subtle and beautiful. It does have a strange contrast against the painted parts of the picture but the fact that it is very delicate makes it work. The girl's face is bright and adorable and not something would typically associate with a Ragnarok, which is the Norse Mythology for the end of the world.

I get the impression this is a playful character that's going to mess with your day.

Wahhhh, let me start by saying this is beautiful piece you've done :iconkawaiipandaplz:

Moving on, I think the colors you chose are great to convey that cloudy sky feel and the gold accent is a good break from the blue. Though referring to the contrast in values, the girl kinda blends in with the background in some places. Try to gray scale the picture to check out what I'm talking about. My suggestion would be to lighten the girl up a bit to bring her out of the background.

Composition wise I think you need more room to the left and above the character. Allow her some more breathing room so to speak and show off the fact she is flying(?) through a stunning background you made. Though if you do this then you'll probably have to draw more buildings and move the cute little bird over to the left. It'll take some time and extra effort but I'm confident it'll increase the impact of her flight.

Speaking of the bird, I'm also confused on where the foreground is in relation to the girl. The building itself seems to be sized more for the background but the large size of the bird tells me that it’s in the foreground, in which case that building seems rather small. I can't tell the girl's position in the sky from these two conflicting elements.

Coming back to the character I think she's absolutely gorgeous. It complements the complexity of the background well and I absolutely love how you shaded her hair. The only critique for her that I can think of is that the girl's right leg (the one closest to the viewer) has a slight anatomical error. I'd explain it but this link does it much better than I can: click here

Lastly, my friend pointed out that the teal green color of the sky shows an evening or night scene while the clouds remain white like it was in the middle of the afternoon. I think this is something you can get away with but this might be something you'd want to keep in mind for future reference.

I hope this was helpful to you, Joyfool, even if it was just a little bit. Anyhow, I look forward to your art in the future (as I always do) :D
