Lady of the Enchanted Forest by Felox08 Lady of the Enchanted Forest by Felox08
<---.Lyria, Keeper of the Enchanted Forest.--->

She is a Dryad with a kind heart that loves and take care of all creatures and plants, and also, a beatiful voice. In fact, her songs can make things grow faster ( no too much) also has healing powers.

Her feets transform into roots in order to place them in the ground when she needs to rest.

Although she has a kind heart, she is afraid of humans, since they want to take over her forest. and cut down her trees.

In order to defend it, she can use her voice to call for aid to the animals and also can transform her roots that are placed over her body to take down her enemies.

Okay, you ask for critique, so I'll try to be fair.

Your color palette is wonderful. Pairing an analogous color scheme with splashes of their respective complimentary colors gives the piece a sense of continuity without being overpowering. You dialed down some of your greens using purple, which both incorporates and accentuates your more saturated hues.
You treat the background as blocks of color, which is good! Instead of saying, "I am painting a tree," it looks like you are putting the colors where you feel that they should go. This way, the background is not overpowering.
Her hip-to-shoulder ratio is good. This, when combined with her muscular definition, makes her more believable. Between the two, she feels balanced.

Now, I do have some issues with some of her anatomy. (Granted, I'm still working on some of these things too.)
Her feet are a little small for her body. This, along with awkward positioning and shape, make her look like she's about to fall over, even though her torso doesn't realize it. A good way to fix this would have been to plant one foot firmly on the ground. While it's not as "sexy", it does wonders for incorporating the character into her surroundings, and helps maintain her balance.
Her boobs are next. With no support, a woman's breasts don't hang that way. I know that she's not necessarily supposed to be realistic, but everything else is so well-defined that it seems out of place. That, and it serves as part of the weight that's throwing her off balance. Perhaps she could use a reduction. Also, the tits themselves are normally a little lower and to the sides. It almost would have been better to have them showing than to put the hair in the wrong position.
As for composition, it might have served you well to move her a little to the left. While centered compositions are simpler, they are also less visually stimulating. Using the rule of thirds, or the golden mean, will fix some of this.
You used purple shadows in the background, which is good. However, it becomes inconsistent on the figure when you used black. Generally, colored shadows work more naturally than black.
Finally, the rabbit is kind of pointless. It doesn't serve a purpose. It doesn't serve to help lead the viewer around the piece, and it wasn't treated with the same care as the dryad, or with the same softness as the background. My eye gets stuck there.

Overall, it's a lovely piece. It just has some balance issues that should be fixed. I hope that I get to see more of your work!

Actually, this reminds me of the Lady of the Forest in Dragon Age Origins. Except she had werewolves. And not pansy Twilight werewolves either. REAL werewolves! Except what's a Dryad?

You should learn a bit from The Witcher too 8D
(most 'forest spirits' from the same area have vast similarities, such as strigoi and vampire.)

Dude, sexy sexy SEXY! I really really wish you would've uploaded this in a slightly higher resolution because there is a lot of detail you can't see. This is an awesome style, and I can't wait to see more works from you like this. In my opinion, this is among your most artistic work to date.

That's definitely better, but you can still see the compression artifacts around objects (particularly the character). If you could tone down the compression a little, I'm sure it'd help a lot in the image clarity.

Krawczyk Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012
You should definitely experiment more often in that case!
The only real weakness I see is that the fairy being a little glowy dot, it should still be possible to see a little bit of 'structure' to the being within, unless you're trying to imply it's pure energy. (I think it was meant to be a fairy anyway, since you have so much zelda art.) I just don't think 'ball of light fairy' translated well to static 2D.

On a random note the rock looks a bit like a space-agey backpack.
