The coloring and detail on this piece is astonishing. Though it lacks depth, I believe the flatness of it is an artistic style and not an inability to shade and tone properly. The originality of the piece really makes it stand out among all others and gives it impact. This is something that causes emotion, and it is truly terrifying where most artworks fail. I feel inspired just looking at this, and I'm excited to see what other works you will have in the future. I enjoy the impressionistic elements of the muscle and sinew, and how they aren't fully detailed but more convey the feeling of sinew than the true appearance. This piece is simply beautiful.
Since I am not a preimium member, I can't use the critque for, so I will post it here. This is awesome, the contrasting and complimentary colors really give it depth and texture. The lack of background really makes it POP.
I really love how saturated all the colors are in this piece. The variety of brush strokes give it a wonderful sense of chaos that really fits with this creature. You've done a fantastic job with all the details, like the sinews of the muscles and the teeth of the little mouths on the beast's body. I'm currently in a watermedia class, and it seems like this kind of work would take a lot of patience. Awesome job! I really love this piece
