Blackstar by ashkey Blackstar by ashkey
I tried so hard to do this in under an hour... but then my mom came home with bagels. XD

I think I like Blackstar. The fact that he was still leader at the end of the Omen of the Stars series gave me many, many years to dislike him. So it's a fond dislike, lmao.

Okay, first of all, I love this. SO MUCH. So now for the pros and cons!

- You shaded this brilliantly, everything shows this cold and brooding mood. Just perfect!
-This expression! It fits Blackstar so well! He looks so disgruntled!
-Anatomy. Especially facial anatomy. I just love it, it's so cat like!
-Composition. It's beautiful, I really love the flow of the picture.
-The fur texture! LOVE IT! It's simple enough not to distract the viewer, but realistic all the same.

-The paw looks slightly too big. That's all. It's not even all that noticable.

Overall, I love this picture a lot! It's well thought out and very well done! Good job!

I love how you make Blackstar look so calm and cool and collected in this painting. He looks like an old cat that has seen many battles and I respect that. I also like how you made the background look so in tone with the white fur of Blackstar's coat blends into the background. I wish I could draw like that but seeing this beautiful artwork should be in a art gallery like yours. Thanks for your wonderful work. Adding the log makes me happy that some dept is made into this great art work, I respect your art and thanks for your awesome work. Well done.
