Alright let's get down down to business! >8D and defeat the Huns. owo
Positive stuff- I'm really impressed with this. I have a thing or two about profiles; especially the forehead and the lips. You did a fantastic job with the profile. The forehead is well shaped and pronounced and the lips fit naturally; something I myself have trouble with.
The color and lighting is gorgeous; You can see the emphasis on the shadows and where some areas have darkened more to create an effective and rather dark piece. The white splatter serves to create a "rippling" effect as which dramatizes and emphasizes what is being focused- the feeling of shattering.
The concept itself is very well done though the originality in general isn't as strong. However, once getting onto the specifics, this is a piece that you can certainly say you yourself conjured.
The emotion and emptiness is what really strikes me. This isn't a cat you would want to hug and say, "oh you poor thing." It's striking; strong and empty. Bitter in fact if I say so myself.
Now onto what you can improve. It appears the cat doesn't have a fully developed head/neck. You don't know where the head ends and where the neck begins. It doesn't come as off "natural" as it could be.
The ears also have a problem as they don't curve properly. The front of the ear also curves outwards a bit, resembling a wee bit of a jackal. The cat on the other hand, is different as the ear flap tends to go inward in the center and then at the tip grow outward.
Other than that, I believe this is a wonderful piece of art. I'm not pretending to be an expert at drawing cats because I probably can't draw one myself. In summary, this is a very beautiful drawing in a rather dark and bitter sense though there's always room for improvement. C:
Sorry for the typos that I forgot to correct or did not see.
(Oh yeah and this is my first critique so go easy on me kay? xD I still have lots to learn.)
