Nyx by LadyArtist Nyx by LadyArtist
For the Mythical Creatures contest. This is Nyx the Greek goddess of the night. She is rarely seen because she is made of shadows. I really enjoyed working on this and wish I could have done more for color but because of the restriction of only using 5 colors this is what I came up with. I apologize for the words being a bit blurred. It looks fine on my computer but for some reason it blurs on here. The back of the shirt says Goddess of the Night.

I voted this cuz I loved the drawing and the color of the eyes (with the eyes colored only, they mantain the target of the look). Maybe I don't like the lower lip, because it's too huge in comparison with the upper, but it is still a wonderful drawing.

And in the back part, you could have put the name of the goddess in the top part, and then in the bottom part, you could have put "Goddess of Night", as it is in the top.

Well anyways I loved it so much, and I hope you at least, get a mention somewere ^^.

I really wanted to take the time to think about how I responded to your comment because it is probably the best praise/critique I have ever received.

The eyes are my favorite part. I really wanted them to stand out against the darkness. I did have a bit of trouble with the lips so I am thankful for you pointing out what needs work for the next time I do something like this. Also if I am understanding what you said about the back of the shirt it's kind of a funny coincidence for me because I think I originally had it that way but changed it at the last minute. Next time I will go with my instincts more. Thank you for that as well.

Your last sentence is what made my day and made submitting the design worthwhile because it proved to me that my work does get noticed and that means more to me than winning. I am so thankful for the vote, the :+fav:, the comment and the watch. :hug:

Wow thanks ^^. I try to always give good feedbacks, so the people who I'm talking to, realizes about their errors. And not every time people answers to my comments as "friendly" (if I can say that word xD) as you did.
So, first of all, thanks.
Second, I really think that you're going to grow. All the possitive atitude (I'll try to do it, I'm thankfull for your poinnting, and I'll try to improve), all that is what makes a really great artist.
And third, and I shut, I swear xP. I really like to give feedback, because I think that every good thing I do, will come back (Karma and all that silly thingies but without chakras and all that XP). So I think that one day I'm going to archieve the level of designing and I would like to get the same comments ^^.

Thanks for reading! And I'm here waiting for your new drawings! ^_^

In my college art classes we have critiques on projects and it seems like half the time people are just tearing you apart. That kind of thing hurts way more than helps. You did a good job telling me what needed to be said without ripping me apart. Sharing the kindness is always a good thing and something I try to do as well. I looked at your gallery and think you are already doing pretty well. I still have lots of trouble with shading and coloring so I'm very thankful for tutorials.
I shall try not to disappoint with my future drawings! :-)
