A wonderful depiction of a Qilin. Or Kirin. Or however you like to say it.

I honestly have never seen a traditional painting or sculpture depicting them with only one horn, so I've always drawn them with the two antlers.

I adore the sense of motion and rhythm in this; it gives it a really nice organic feel -- which obviously lends itself well to the piece as a whole, given the subject.

Finally, someone who knows how to use a watermark. Usually people put theirs in BRIGHT YELLOW smack dab in the center.

Now on topic, it's a great picture. Nice take on the Qilin.

I really *love* your fast improvement with your art and media using. I love your great skill with adjusting depth of illustration, variance by using brushes and color choice. Only what bothers me by a little is that environment is warm colored and it has warm light. That light is not neutral sunlight but warm light. And creature's blue body and highlighted areas (I assume those are more scale-alike texture) should have more of warm light. Hue of warmed up blue on highlight areas. Because it looks like it's reflected by cold hued light reflections where the background does not suggest any of cold light sources.

But on the other hand, it really makes the creature design to stand out more although...

Regardless, keep up with awesome work Kate! (-:

Thanks! I plan on coming back to this image when I have the time and refining it further, so I'll try and amend those issues then. I do want the creature to pop, but I also want to tie him into the environment a bit more.

Sadly with traditional art whoever critiques/or gives useful advice to me on finished pieces, I can't really fix anything :D Unless I could pull out a tablet and digitally fix few renderings on picture..

Yeah, i know what you mean also.But sometimes you can find ways to fix them. I know with color pencil, and even pen, It's helpful to use acrylic paint pen or white gel pen (preferably white gel pen) to fix mistakes and make the colors smoother.

:iconexileden:
Exileden Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012
Of course *there* are some ways, but not enough. I'm still able to fix a few elements but nothing much. And Acrylic paint is a no-no go for my traditional medium usage. Watercolors and colored pencils. If you layer down acrylic on it, it will totally change entire image where I would have to change it into more acrylic version. I cannot also draw on top of acrylic with pencil.

Yeah, that's why i use a white gel pen for that. And since i can't afford copics, i use it,and sometimes the white acrylic paint pen to blend crayola markers. But for the most part, I use the white gel pen on both color pencils and makers.

I guess in the case of color pencils, the best you can do to fix mistakes, is erase some of what you can, and/or use the white gel pen.(i like using it for hi-lights)

You can paint overtop things though with oils and acrylics, probably the most comparable medium to digital painting. But yeah, it's not as simple with watercolor
