The name should be the crimson lion fist or Red Fury. Considering Chinese kung fu film are crazy with imitating the animals to achieve some spirituality. reverse the colour scheme of the armour and add some glowing eye and mouth to the arm portion, beside those is up to you.
Well sorry but this may sound a bit harsh but I only mean to be constructive. (also my english is a bit iffy so excuse me)
-Your Colors outright suck. I'd really work on that more than anything else atm because some of your lights(reds) are outright cartoony.
-Your trying to show muscle on a female. Now mind you there are many people who do this well (some of blizzards artists do a great job with it) but you should should stay away from muscular females. I think making your forms simpler and rounder with more body fat on the waist and legs will make your figures look much more appealing for now.
-Try and stick to your own creativity. I know a lot of people really seem to like fan art on this site but in the end your ripping off someone else's ideas instead of training your brain to come up with your own. Once your skilled enough to do so anyway then by all means go for it
-Try to avoid straight on composition, straight on lighting, straight on proportions. Believe it or not a good artist can draw 3 cubes simple cubes but still make it more dynamic/interesting than a not as good artists finished painting.
Well I hope you don't think I'm being mean too mean, I think you've got a good start and a bright future ahead of you.
PS a better name would be Vi custom skin, custom design, or whatever. Whenever you give a title to a painting it gives a viewer a certain amount of hype which is more trouble than it's worth unless it's an actual product of course
Constructive?! You suck as a person. And trying to correct someone by putting muscle on a champ that IS MADE OF MUSCLE and her attacks are DEPENDANT on MUSCLE, is just assigning. Go home. You're not welcome here!!!!! D:<
Septarim, not a single thing you said was constructive criticism, constructive is giving pointers on certain aspects of the art, you outright insulted the person the whole reply and basically told them, their art is wrong. Your english has nothing to do with your obvious problem, which is being an idiot. Muscle definition on a female is very common actually, especially in the super hero genre and Vi for instance.
I suggest you go educate yourself on what constructive criticism actually is, before trying to give it. Lol
Oh and also, did it ever strike you that the artist may have wanted a cartoony look? Like that isn't even a criticism that is just you having a hate-on for cartoony looks, honestly.
being constructive is one thing being outright rude is another. Telling someone to 'stay away' from trying a particular style until they are 'good enough' is completely counter productive, if they never try that style they can never get better at it. Everyones bad at things to start with staying away from those things rather than continually practicing is only gonna make you worse. However you went one step further ripping into them and their art which is incredibly personal and serves nothing than make them feel like shit. Well done.
Kay couple things. Where exactly did I mention style, I bet you think it's where I said "Muscular females" or was it mentioning fan art? If your going to try and call something out at least know your terminology, nothing I mentioned relates to style. Also I'd like an explanation on if you never try a style you can never get better at it cause I have a feeling you didn't think that sentence through enough. :/
Secondly it is not my goal to make anyone feel like shit, my goal is to help them understand what they need to work on.
I doubt this person is just starting, they are 23 years old according their profile. Continually practicing making the same mistakes = copying yourself never getting any better.
Now for this final part of your reply
"Ripping them apart as far THEIR ART is incredibly personal and serves nothing than make them feel like shit." - WTFevenisthis
Oh boy do I ever get tired of hearing that line. The whole point of a critique is to rip someone apart so they can understand where they need to improvement. Using their art as defence in any situation is extremely amateur, in fact I've seen people fired for it.
Just pointing this out you could of just said,"Your colors suck" was mean.
You are so clueless its not even funny. You have no idea how to be constructive or a decent human being at that. Constructive criticism: criticismoradvicethatisusefulandintendedtohelporimprovesomething,oftenwithanofferofpossiblesolutions You were not useful or did you intend to help them improve. If you did you would have pointed out KINDLY your tips on what you see needs improvement. Not just tell them that their reds suck and their muscle definition is shit. It may not be a perfect body study but its pretty damn close for a somewhat cartoon-ized character. You are stripping them of their own creative identity in their art, you elitist ass hole. Who are you? Did you get kicked off the website before and start a new profile? Loser...
Sigh I'm beginning to remember why I stopped going on this website. A thousand times over. Sorry kiddo but your not one bit helpful to anyone. Do you understand how annoying it is dealing with 3rd rate artists. When I tell people I'm working in freelance they assume I'm like your crowd. Getting paid 10 dollars by some fat creepy guy to draw anime. Then you actually have the nerve to attack a hard working professional when you think he's being unjust in a critique. Really is quite sad. I don't know why you lot don't just find a different hobby instead of being "artists".
If you can be sure of anything, then that a troll will always find the time to respond. You didn't disappoint me, if I may say so. Your imagination of me as a 'kiddo' proves how poor your sense of judgement is. You didn't even take the time to investigate who you're talking to. Neither am I an artist nor am I young, but I'm a pro myself in another related media and contrary to you I have respect for artists no matter their age or development. Can it be that you're so frustrated about losing jobs to those so called "3rd rate artists", that you even became a member of this oh so hated platform Deviant Art again and use it just to insult and discourage possible new competitioners? In that case, your negative comment would be a compliment instead. It shows that you're really afraid of the virtuality of this artist. My, thank you, sir!
But maybe YOU should look for another hobby than being rude to young artists, cause people will see through you and your actions will eventually become counterproductive. I guess you could use your time more usefully.
That was just awesome, thanks a lot ) Imagine my shock when I came to check my inbox on DA a couple of hours ago and found out that this Vi fanart hit 23k+ views in 2-3 hours, not counting all the things that resulted from it(i.e. favourites, watches etc). Thanks again, this is just amazing.
