The quote “If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all” has been around so long that it cannot be attributed to any one person. I used this quote to speak about another piece of art back in July of 2010 but I think it will fit here as well. When I first saw this work, I truly thought "Star Fox" in my mind as I checked out the thumbnail. Krystal's blue color is too unique to fit another mold. When the picture was fully loaded, some other ideas came to mind.

First, I was caught off guard as I thought that their ears and snouts felt a bit out of place. The longer more-rounded snouts in tandem with the larger and higher ears had me thinking these were kangaroos. I took this train of thought a metaphorical “station further” and reviewed some photos of kangaroos and foxes to check myself. After looking over various photos, I realized that this work was more accurate than I first thought. In particular, I’d say the ears fit well.

I happened to agree with the other comments that Krystal looked masculine. The feminine curves that are typical to most women were not apparent in this picture. I think a quick fix might be achieved with more feminine eye lashes. A change in clothes could also help but that would change what you were trying to convey in this piece.

All of that said I refer back to the quote. “If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.” This is very nice work and I hope to see more in the future.

Thank you.

Well thank you Ponjos for your very thoughtful comment, and don't worry about not saying anything nice, to me a Critique from someone means that they want you to improve and that is very nice :D. I think what really happened with Krystal here is that I want here to look feminine but without all the exaggerated stereotypes, but unfortunately I feel that I fail that challenge :shrug:. and thanks very much again for taking enough interest in my work, and taking the time to write such long, well thought out, (and researched) comment. :w00t:

You are quite welcome. As artists, it is our job to continue improving as time passes. Whether we are writing critiques or drawing our favorite characters, we owe it to ourselves to grow and learn.

This is what SF fan art should look like. :thumbsup: I like that sniper gear that Krystal (?) is using.

Your welcome. I just thought that she looked a bit... masculine. Very different take on the characters. :)
