Yaaay Arfy you're done!!!

Ok so I'm a bit tired and typing on the Wii so I don't really think I'll go into much detail~
The stone wall is just wonderful, very pretty. I do think the buildings in the back are a bit... lacking? Idk, it's probably me, but you got these solid walls of pretty much one color- I dunno if you could've made a pattern or shaded/highlighted them more but uh THAT'S JUST ME, it's not really anything you have to worry about or whatever lol
I do think that the water is off though- water is a clear reflective surface, the reason it's blue is cuz it's reflecting off of the sky. So um the shadows of everything, while still being darker & blueish, should really be similarly colored to the thing that's casting the shadow--I'd give you a link but uh ON THE WII so yeah. I also wish you had broken up the colors of the water (you've got another one of those SOLID WALLS OF PRETTY MUCH ONE COLOR going on again), y'know, making it look more like, er, the water's moving a bit (idk, google search Venice or something). Uh.... sorry for making no sense rmtifdmifhdbr.
One last thing, I don't think Arf's tail should be bending up like that when she's lying down :/

BUT this is still a lovely tryout and I can't wait to see your next one bby <3333333

THANK YOU :) i rly like the constructive criticism kyuub<33 And I understand what you're saying completely. I slacked off on the water, partially because I was unsure of how to get the right colors to make the reflection, and also because I'm lazy.(Water is extremely difficult for me in solids.. should've used watercolors.)
OH, and here's what i was using as a ref--I KNOW MINE LOOKS NOT NRLY AS GOOD AS IT http://www.iaza.com/work/100110C/FMA12025416.bmp

once again, thank you so much kyuubi :) I'll better myself with what you said

I like the fact that while you did reference this you altered some things to make it your own, specifically the angel and railing. However, I think you could have used that reference more involving the colors and shades of things. Your drawing, while it does show some perspective, still seems rather flat. The stones are grey, water blue, dog brown and the shades and highlights are simply the one color but darker and lighter. But if you look at the reference you?ll see that the stones are more than just grey but have all sorts of shades and colors such as greens, blues, and reds. Also water (no matter where you are) isn?t just solid blue. In fact the colors found in water are mostly created by whatever is being reflected. Nonetheless this is a pretty decent tryout. The image itself is rather interesting and the subject is obviously involved with the background which is excellent! The composition is nice and the atmosphere is quite peaceful which goes well with the subject. Overall this drawing is wonderful! I can?t wait to see what you come up with for your second tryout! Good luck =]
