Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-08
Appa by *akreon. To be fair, this artist has an astounding amount of wonderful deviations in their gallery to chose a Daily Deviation from, but the simplicity of this work paired with the unusual, realistic rendition of Appa from Avatar: TLA makes it something that cannot be passed on! Enjoy this and the rest of this deviant's gallery! ( Suggested by talliesynn and Featured by aunjuli )

Personally I absolutely love this. Though I do think you could have brought out the color in his markings a bit more. A few of my friends who watch avatar as well looked at it at first asked what it was and I had to tell them it was Appa before they noticed his marks. Fur texture and pose are lovely as always but I think maybe you could have put something in the lighter zone, like a boulder to make his front part seem as vibrant white as the back. The one eye peeking out was really nifty and he has cute toes. Sorry if this sucks, never wrote a critique before ^^;
What do you think?

I like this one really much, and there are not many things that I don't like with it. The things that I REALLY like is his front legs and the foot on the visible back leg. I also like the textures and his mane is lovely, looks very soft and real. What I think could have been a bit better is his back leg (not the foot!). I think it is a little to thin. And also the tail looks a bit strange. Other than that, this pic is just wonderful^^ Great work!

Sorry about the wrong english... *sweating a little*
