I figured I'd write up another critique, and I think this is a good opportunity to do so, if you're fine with it.

Okay, first, I love your style; everything's so pretty! But of course, it'd be a disservice if I gushed about that this whole time XD

First of all, the lighting. I see some beams of light coming down from the trees, but the top of her head is in shadows. Perhaps its the orientation of the light, but still, it looks a little weird o: Also, I'd expect to see more shadows under her roots, but maybe I'm wrong ^^;

Aaaalso, the perspective. Maybe I'm looking at it wrong, but the dryad and the trees seem to be oriented differently. The trees look straight-up, but the dryad is like semi-birdseyeish, whatever it's called XD

I do like the idea of this, though :3 (glasses are sexy >__> ) I'd say a glasses-wearing dryad reading a book is pretty original XD

Overall, it's a lovely picture. I enjoy seeing things like this from you ^^

...OH YEAH, I'm sure this was a personal pref, but her trunk looks kind of flimsy. Maybe it's the character, but to me, it's different from what I expect ^^; Doesn't really hurt the picture, though, but just bringing it up :3

A beautiful picture :)
I really like the look you gave her :D

The angle, I think, works very will in emphasizing her body proportions and size as will as that inquisitive look. It seems I'm the only one that notice but I love that bit about name capitalization :lol:

Very good!:clap:

Nice to see a picture of these two. It's an unusual scene, and well managed here, I think. Her expression quite suits her, and the whole scene feels peaceful.

Her tree trunk does seem a bit thin, though...

I love it, lyiba! Captured Ishaaya quite nicely. :)

The glasses are quite sexy, although there is something a bit off about the height perspective.

And I bet that book is made from fellow trees!
Gorger Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
Gotta be frank here, Ishaaya's face looks perhaps too elongated, it really gives a creepy vibe, and not in a good way. And her breasts just look off

cute eyes :D

I seem to recall something about Dr. Malan not liking it when Ishaaya was dressed in such a manner...

Also. Glasses.
