A commission for Ozawk. I forgot how much of a challenge winged characters could be, especially when they have patterning like an osprey!

Looks great, but since you asked for critique, I'll give this one: the legs could use some more detailing, they look too simple I believe.
Still, great job!

Thanks for the compliment and critique! I'll keep that in mind for future paintings.

Ransom !!!!!!!! Wow !! This is really good. The tight detailing on the character's face and upper body are wonderful. I also love how you played with the light source in that area, as well. It looks nice and bright there. :D The eye detail is also super excellent here. I can't stop starting at his eye~
As far as critique is concerned, I would suggest pushing a similar level of detail on the lower body as well, starting right below the chest. The brush strokes look a bit too rough there (esp on both thighs)
I also recommend smoothing out the clouds in the background. The rough edges there distract the eye away from the character.
I also agree that the legs themselves could use a bit more scale detailing. And the character's head could stand to be sized down just a touch - It looks just a little too big for the body.
Last (but not least), I think some improvement would be had with one more light source that would cast a soft glow onto the very dark area of his character's wing/their back in general. That would give the character more of a three dimensional feel.

You've always given me the best and most useful critique ever, as well as been very uplifting and inspiring. I'm usually not good with critique, so I'm super happy I was able to put together a more useful one for ya >w< <3
