This just beautiful.

All the words I can put into this Critique is just "wow"
The colors are phenomenal. Your Technique in the is amazing! All the details you put into this is just again Phenomenal.
I love the branches and the red glow at the bottom it really speaks to me. The Stars are gourges. Everytime I look at this I find diffrent meanings. As I looked deeper in the picture, I saw a deer/buck. this is so amazing.. I wouldnt mind buying thins some day and putting it on my wall.

55 out of 60 deviants thought this was fair.

First of all, I love how you managed to achieve I sense of hugeness with this painting. You used the branches well, making them seemingly appear from above and the 'scratches', the 'specks' and the haze also help to emphasize a feeling of being engulfed and manage to add so much more to the background just on their own. However, I can't be sure how to feel about some of the... I guess 'effects' that you used. The square specks and a few other things give off a modern feel and while it looks cool, it's feels slightly out of place; that such a natural concept is mixed with 'technological' elements.

The next thing my eyes are drawn to is the bright red of the blood. It's somewhat bright... beacon-like I suppose. Signifying its liveliness before it was hunted? Nonetheless, it did feel a little out of place. However, I do like the two branches that extend out from the side. It's as if something new sprouted after accepting death, or perhaps it is actually death accepting the fallen.

And this is my favourite part: the portrayal of the hunter. Even as he firmly grabs onto the head of the deer, he holds the deer an arm's length away. His stance clearly exudes confidence and strength. The way he fades into the darker background splendidly portrays his stealth and his mysteriousness. The only complaint I might have would be that his arm feels too long and slightly weirdly twisted. But in general, it doesn't really detract from the picture.

In a more general note, I love the overwhelming majesty of the piece while still managing to stay subtle. You used the tones of colour effectively giving subtle variety. Placement was well implemented, the deer being the focus (out in the open) and the hunter to the side (nearby). The hunter is also very well done to imply shock/surprise, breaking up the general symmetry of the piece. I could say more. But I may well end up rambling.

Keep up the good work!

The best of all time in your gallery, in my opinion. The composition, colours, shades, everything is just perfect.
