While I definitely like this picture and the overall composition, the left front character's pose makes it look as if her spine is broken [I hope not] - and even if it was anatomically possible, it's probably at least uncomfortable and impractical as a battle stance.
Now, I would like to point out all the positive things about this image as it wouldn't seem fair otherwise and as though the only thing I can do here is complain, but I don't really know where to start. I generally enjoy how you draw humans - hair, clothes, dynamics, etc. In this case I'm particularly fond of the left character's hair and the red clothes.
Also the fiery background gives it a great atmosphere imho.
Okay, guess that's the best I can do at reasonable critique of someone far better than me...
uh i don't think he needs criticism.. he is professional and it is his art, so he can do whatever he wants... this sounds awfully rude and I'm really sorry if i offended you ;____; (he doesn't understand english fully as well so I don't think he can understand your whole message)
I might be misunderstanding, but are you saying that art shouldn't be criticised if someone got money for it? If so, then I think we do not share the same opinion on art in general.* If not, then I am sorry I misunderstood and would appreciate if you clarified your point.
I'm not sure where you got the idea that I said he cannot draw the picture this way. He obviously did, so he can. I can draw whatever I want, too, even if it's a stick figure and someone pays me for that; but that doesn't mean my work is exempt from criticism when I upload it on a website that includes user commentary.
* While no one may "need" criticism, my personal view is that it can be valuable if one wants to improve their skills. Hence, the only situation in which it would be unnecessary if there was nothing to improve on. First of all, I think this is not necessarily true even if you are already very good at something and do it for a living [as redjuice obviously is], but secondly, I obviously disagree and found something worth criticising here.
The red-clothed female looks so much like Da Qiao from Dynasty Warriors; which is one of the main reasons why I'm adoringly staring at this gorgeous image with excellent execution so much * u * The battle of Red Cliff is one of my most favorite world's legend, therefore it's a certain pleasure to have seen a somewhat relevant artwork from you.
