.:Celeste:. by Joel-Grizzlebeard .:Celeste:. by Joel-Grizzlebeard
A gift for :iconkiss-the-thunder:
She gave me some really wonderful advice when she critiqued my picture ( ), and really gave me a boost in my confidence as an artist, so I wanted to say thank you. :3
She originally had angel wings, but they sort of cluttered the picture, so I took them out.

I tried some new stuff with the shading and have mixed feeling about it. I like it, but at the same time I don't. XD

Oh my goodness....wow. You did this for me? Over a Critique? Oh my goodness, you have no idea what that means to me, that you found what I said helpful and encouraging ;-; Thank you so much!! :glomp:

About the picture, I was really impressed when I saw it! I really love the texture in the sash and the lovely blush on her cheeks! The way her eyes are closed, peaceful and serene with the faintest of of shine is beautiful!! You really captured her, especially the pose! The way her hands are clasped at her rib cage is lovely! It looks like she's singing!

Again, thank you so much for this, you did a really fantastic job! My only really critique (because you asked for it) is that she has no ankles, but in the sonic style a lot of people vary on how to do the feet and legs, so it's pretty easily overlooked. Also, the arms are a touch long. A good rule of thumb to keep track is referencing your own body. My elbows reach just above my waist but are under my rib cage. They don't make it so low as the hips. Again, I don't find it very detracting because in Sonic style there's a lot of room for interpretation :)

All in all, I was extremely impressed that you did this piece! It looks like it's a step up from some others I've seen! Whatever you did differently, it shows and it looks great! There movement, emotion, and talent at work! I submitted this to the Celeste club for the featured folder <3 I hope you don't mind!

Thank you again, I'm in love with this! Mind if I print it out for my wall of Celeste in my pony room??

You're welcome! ^^
Well, it really meant a lot to me that you took the time to critique it. Andyou were so nice while doing it, and actually explained what I could do to fix the picture (Which a LOT of people don't do when they critique my pictures. XD)

I'm glad you like it! I've never tried this sort of pose before, so I had some trouble with it (Mostly keeping her arms in proportion), and her left hand I'm still not happy with, but I like the picture overall. :3

Ah, yes, the ankles. I noticed that when I was half finished shading. X'D
I normally do ankles of some sort, but I think the fact I've never drawn paw-like feet like Celeste's kind of threw me off on that bit. ^^;

Thank you again! I can't tell you what a nice surprise your comment was this morning! And of coursxe I don't mind! :3 :hug:

It would be an honour to have this on your wall of Celeste! :iconaawplz:

It's fine, Celestes design follows different rules than most fancharacters and some people do find her more difficult ^^ You pulled her off beautifully though!!

And again, I'm thrilled you liked my critique so much! The way you applied it really brought a new life and dimension to the picture and I really found myself loving it!!

You're so nice ^^ Keep in touch!

Yeah, it was a little hard - but it was so much fun and a great challenge. Elegant characters I find are the most fun to draw. :heart:

Thanks! ^^
I'm really pleased with how it trned out in the end. You were right, the edits REALLY helped it. :3

I will! :hug:
