Rare Wine by GlancoJusticar Rare Wine by GlancoJusticar
Still not what I had in mind in terms of colors and shadows but I'm getting better and better.

Posting this at night so I expect to point out errors with a fresh mind tomorrow.

(PS: "I don't like pointy ears" and similar are forbidden to use in a critique. That's like, um, your opinion man.)

Featured on EQD [link] as number 20. (Why humanized piece was posted I have no idea but it's nice.)

Rarity looks very fashionable tonight. The suit is absolutely flawless, both in design and in the actual picture. The high-heeled shoes match the color as well as elegance. Her hairstyle looks very different from her usual one, but it fits beautifully. :thumbsup:

The architechture of the chair and the table are perfect Corinthian. Ony might say that Rarity was living in Buckingham Palace. Queen Elizabeth would not object to that, I'm sure. :flaguk:

Need I add that the reflection of the moon through the window gives it an undeniably artistic trend to the room, not to mention the nighttime giving her plenty of shade?

Lastly, the title "Rare Wine" is quite an appropriate pun to Rarity's name. I wonder what flavor it is...
What do you think?

Never written a deviantArt critique before, but people seem to like them so Im gonna give it a shot. Not sure if I'm gonna do too well...

First off, I thought that the lighting was highly effective and definitely created a great sort of candlelight atmosphere in the picture. The shadows this created made the entire picture and Rarity a lot more mysterious, and the pose was even quite intimidating. The crossed leg and laid back appearance of the woman certainly reflected that of Rarity. Very classy setting too of course.
For me, the worst (really, the only bad thing I noticed) part of the picture is the structure of the arms... although the torso and legs seem to be drawn almost perfectly. The arms just do not seem to look right however... the upper part and shoulder of the right arm (her right) seems too thin, almost anorexic. Yes, this would be acceptable for a cartoon drawing, but I don't understand how that could be relevant when the rest of the body seems so real. Maybe its just me, but thats what I think when I look at it.

The lighting makes up for it however, it sets a real flirty - yet serious feeling for the pic. Nice one.
