Critique by IokoThePanda Nov 11, 2012, 6:02:29 AM
So, i love all the details you did, it looks qute cool!
The difference to the grass are the trees, they havn´t got so much detail. But I think that your mixture from details and no details is well done. The colours you use are pretty together. One thing is jumping into your eye, the pink antler. i just love the whole picture, it´s quite intresting to watch and watch again.

So, i hope it was an okay Critique, it´s my first and sorry for my bad english, I know it isn´t the best. But keep your work going on!
What do you think?

Your trees don’t match your landscape their drawn in a different format than the landscape they look like cardboard cutouts in a pristine landscape. While being distracting I guess they serve their purpose of moving the eye around its a grate illustration for the book since it seems like a children’s book your attempt at originality is complete, although anything created by an artist is original

As an inhabitant of Sweden, I feel an urge to put this on my wall.
It depicts my feeling for this beautiful country, and It's close symbiosis between nature and civilization.
I'll return every know and then to see whether a a print is available or not.

A wonderful combination of realism and simplification. I love the right, wintertime part, maybe becase of the high contrast. Lovely!
