THIS IS INCREDIBLE. I vote archive times 600000000000!

Shiro Saturday, September 9th 2006, 1:46 PM
My, this is stunning. o:

But, I have to disagree on the archive. I do believe the BG could've been more detailed. Although I could be wrong.

I love how you colored the subject, the dark shading really gives depth. [:

Animefreak Saturday, September 9th 2006, 1:46 PM
This is..... just to gorgeous for words.....


Infinity5 Saturday, September 9th 2006, 1:49 PM
I don't really think it looks too much like it, maybe the back feet, but this one's not as fluffy and it has scales too^^ and that one has wings. This one doesn't^^

I love you.

kuchen Saturday, September 9th 2006, 3:08 PM

I'd say this is THE most archive-worthy of all your current archives.

This turned out beautiful ;;
Do any other admins think this should be archived? <:

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 4:55 PM
ok ... *calms down * there it is

thought i lost it

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 4:56 PM
thanks pocky *hugs*

I'm not an admin, but... I'm going to be the bad guy and say no. .___.

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 4:57 PM
just wondering... but why?

Rikka Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:00 PM
I think this deserves an archive @@ I love the whole concept, and the detail is STUNNING. Just. Wow <3

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:02 PM
thanks crim ^^

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:03 PM
but maybe u should wait untill the other admins agree

waffletroubadour Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:04 PM
Okay. | D

PROS - Considering that you did it in PaintBBS with low opacity, it must have taken a lot of time and effort. And what you do have done is quite lovely.

CONS - However... you could work on this more. If you did, it'd probably be worth the archive. You have definitive highlights on the the subject, which is good, but... basically only two shadows (under the beak and above the wing). Sans the highlights, it'd feel very flat, because it's basically only one middle tone plus individual shading on the feathers. So you need to push your darks a little more, to make it more convincing.

You also have no definitive light source; the shading you have is based off of the reflections from the fire, but there's also the backlight from the moon.

It's also anatomically awkward, like you mentioned. You should be able to see more than one wing, and (although it's stylized,) I feel like you could see more of the body/make the torso thicker without problems. (Remember that there's a whole ribcage there. :3)

I'll stop before I make this post any longer. <<;;;

EDIT - Edited.

Becca Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:05 PM
Now this one, I can say is Archive worthy :)
The background, and colouring is all wonderful.

The only crits I have is, seeing as the moon is up in the top right, shouldn't there be highlights on the bird's back? And like waffle said, the bird is rather too thin?
Meh xD

I think that's all that needs to be fixed xD

This is overall awesome :D

I'm being a bad guy too and agreeing with Waffle for all of the same reasons. .o.

I love the way the flames look. You draw birds well. 8D

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:07 PM
well thanks! im going to draw more of these guys and ill do what u say ^^

thanks for the help
and i usually just highlight every where cuz its fun ... ill stop doing that now ^^

Kavi Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:08 PM
Your style is so unique, very creative and original. <3

Rikka Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:09 PM
Well, it's not supposed to be whoaflawless..archives should be standard-quality advanced, and I think this fits that criteria :3 But even if you guys end up unarchiving it, it's very nice <3

decissed Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:12 PM
@Crim, I'm not an admin anymore. xD Ev1 ignored my omail when I asked if she could give me back my priveledges after asked to have them revoked.

zoole Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:19 PM
This is gorgeous. <3 I really like those shades of brown, and the transition from feather to fire is just...wow!

The only things stopping me from thinking HLYSHT ARCHIVE PLZ right now is the fact you could've defined the highlighting on those trees and the outlines of the trees themselves a bit more (smaller brush and a bit more detail, so the highlight on the tree with the branches around the top centre of the picture doesn't end in something that's 3px wide, and the shading on the back (push the darks and push the highlights, maybe? It looks pretty flat at the moment...). Maybe show the texture of the trees a little bit using 1/2px highlights as well?

That's pretty minor stuff, though; I'm sure it wouldn't take too long to retouch it. :3

Don't take it personally, I'm really picky about archives... |D

EDIT: Heh, I get lazy after I've been working on a picture for a while, too...'cept I'm 5023093 times slower than you. XD

I think you've achieved the burnt-look quite nicely - not quite what I meant in the crit. :3 The highlight on the tree (branch?) dead centre/fourth from the right side of the image looks a tad messy due to the big-ish brush you used? I think a 1px would have been more effective with this lighting.

kuchen Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:24 PM
no thats alright i love getting crits its suposed to kinda look like there burnt ... and iv been working on this pic for like 3 or 4 days and im just sick of drawing it so i kinda rushed

(Edited on July 20, 2006, 5:26 pm)

snowager Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:26 PM
once again you amaze me with your awesome birds,its reallly worth the archive *w*

@Sadil; everyone has different opinions. xD; It's human.

OMG Congrats on your archive! This IS your second one, right? Because if it is, your awesome!

AnimeCat Thursday, July 20th 2006, 5:41 PM
I think it's worth the archive ^3^;; lovely picture <33333

Dogdemon Thursday, July 20th 2006, 6:18 PM
|D Why are the regular members more strict about archives than the admins? I think that's kinda...weird

Also, Crim. You shouldn't really jump on archiving it until 2 other admins agree. (now more do but before it was just you and pocky)

I say it's an archive for sure. It's kinda funny that the person that was forced to do three tryouts has two archives already.

waffletroubadour Thursday, July 20th 2006, 6:28 PM
"Why are the regular members more strict about archives than the admins?"

Is it a bad thing? o___o

Tiger Thursday, July 20th 2006, 8:13 PM
Yeah, this one is definately archive worthy ^^ I don't think the other one is though D:

Sayumie Thursday, July 20th 2006, 8:48 PM
this is amazing total archive worthy

Darkraii Thursday, July 20th 2006, 11:25 PM

this is beautiful!!i totally say IN

someone archive please C:

twisty Friday, July 14th 2006, 3:03 AM
I think you are definitely in. The colors are gorgeous and you show lotsa control over the watercolor tools.

I'd have to disagree with the archive though..mainly because the background. The way the dark blue blends with the orange just seems sorta choppy..if you smoothed out the transition then I think it would be. :)

kuchen Friday, July 14th 2006, 3:06 AM
its supposed to be that way ... idk Y but it is

kuchen Friday, July 14th 2006, 3:07 AM
thanks any ways

misumi Friday, July 14th 2006, 3:09 AM
I agree with doggeh, I think this deserves an archive C:

grants oon the archive :3 <33

kuchen Friday, July 14th 2006, 4:23 AM
YAY! thanks admins! ^^

waffletroubadour Friday, July 14th 2006, 3:32 PM
-kind of... late-

This is amazing, and you are completely and definitely in.

However, (though it doesn't really matter, now that this is archived,) I don't think it's quite worthy of an archive. ><;;

Becca Saturday, July 15th 2006, 2:26 AM
I'd have to say this isn't really archive worthy.
It is intermediate, but not archive worthy..

Firstly, the lighting.
The light is in the top left, am I right? If so, there should be no lighting on the chest feathers, as far as I know.

The way the blue fades into the background seems rather sloppy, and blotchy. Yet, it should very smoothly blend slowly into the background.

Also the bird's anatomy seems very wonky. The bird's back is very thin for it's body. I do believe the sky underneat the wing, should be more body.

However, I know I am late.

Grats on making it in.

Tiger Saturday, July 15th 2006, 5:35 PM
-agrees with Becca- ^^; However, this is still a beautiful picture nonetheless! <33333333

decissed Saturday, July 15th 2006, 8:54 PM
I have to agree with those three for the same reasons. but this is intermediate.

Admins when you archive a picture TELL US

Dogdemon Sunday, July 16th 2006, 5:37 PM
Tell who, Dark? More than one admin thought it was archive worthy.

lilhasu Sunday, July 16th 2006, 10:32 PM
the coloring is nice :) but..i can't see any feet :/
