My face when I saw this, my jaw honestly dropped and I just started in awe. o_o
You've done a fantastic job. I really like your style. It's interesting to see the different concept people have when drawing humans, and how they produce the overall anatomy and facial features. The facial features is always something that fascinates me. So many artists have so many different ideas on how to draw facial features, and I get surprised every time. They really add personality to the character, and some people really give characters their own unique facial features. Which makes it extremely realistic. That's what you've done here. You've really thought about Jade's facial structure and you've brought life to this picture by doing so.
The way you've shaded her face is amazing. o_o There's so many tones, and it's all blended so nicely that I can't pick out the amount of tones, or where exactly the shading begins because it's all so smooth. I'm really surprised, your art is truly wonderful and this has to be one of the most beautiful pixels I've ever seen. I'm very impressed! You've got so much patience, by the looks of things.
I love the hair. You've put so much detail into it. I like how you've added so many different shades, and added them in a certain way. Since you've got some shades going one direction, and others crossing over them. It's quite like a cross hatch pattern in some respects, and I really like it. You've made her locks of her stand out, and it's really pretty.
The pose is very nice. It seems to match Jade quite a bit, and it's rather majestic and elegant.
That outfit. My goodness, it's absolutely stunning. I really enjoyed looking at the details on the outfit. There's so many to pick out and enjoy.
The top half is shaded very nicely. I love how you've pointed out the creases with lighter and darker shades. Whenever I draw creases, I tend to make the creases part of the lineart, but it never occurred to me to try adding some of the cloth-like texture with the shading too. It's really nice to see that in a drawing, it honestly looks beautiful in your style. I can't explain how much I love your detailed shading. ;U;
The light reflects off the clothes and Jade's hair and skin so very nicely! It looks extremely naturally and it's shaded in all the right places. You've got a very good idea of where the light would lay, and where the shadows would begin to creep in. It is quite hard to grasp the concept of lighting and shading, but you've honestly done a wonderful job.
The bottom part of the outfit... o_o
The way you've shaded that is truly amazing. I like the many different directions of shading. It's very nice and really adds a detailed effect. It shows you're not afraid to experiment with shading that doesn't stick to one, perfectly neat direction. The fact that you've derived from that, and created some patterns of your own is wonderful. It's truly creative.
I like the colours you've used. It's a very nice idea to go with colours that are completely different from the grey, and they're very bright and pretty too. It adds a wonderful effect to her outfit. I just love the colours. ^_^
Then, the sparks/stars are an even more wonderful addition. I'm so impressed. It's just such a wonderful idea and fits very well with the shading.
Every piece of this picture sets the others off, making every detail stand out.
I love the hood. That's shaded fantastically too. It just looks so realistic because you've thought about every pattern, every direction of light that would bounce off the creases, etc. It just has so much depth and shape.
Those ears. ;U; Everything is shaded so fantastically and you've gotten the shape/texture just right.
This is extremely beautiful. It has to be one of my favourite pixels. Thank you very much for uploading this. I had a lot of fun analysing it, and I'll gladly enjoy clicking that 'favourite' button.
OMG.... X\\D um... I dunno what to say... its just.. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! uwu it made me really happy when I was reading it... =v= and I'll try to do more pixels like this... =v= hehe~ thank you again!! ^w^
