    What kind of critique are you hoping for? I can only think of a few nitpicks.

      Anything, really.

      If people have any advice or nitpicks that can help me improve on my next drawing, than I'm eager for them.

        Well, I guess it looks kinda rigid. I'm not sure how, but I suggest trying to make edges rounder, or more balanced. That, and some of the perspective, makes the pillars look a bit off.

        But while I can see these flaws, I wanna emphasize thay I wouldn't know how to fix them. I think you are generally more skilled than I currently am.

          Thank you! I can definitely see what you mean, and I'll try and take that into account. Even if you don't solutions to the problem, comments like this help me get a generally idea of areas to think more about and work on, so it can still be very helpful.

    Ohhhhhh I cannot stand when the watercolor paper starts peeling apart. Have you tried using illustration board?

    Materials aside, I'm absolutely in love with this piece <3 You put a lot into this, and it's beautifully evident in this piece <3 I adore how you rendered the eyes, and the stonework is top notch!
