*TAKES A DEEP BREATHE* i hope i do this right. late comment is LATE.

i think you did a great job overall. it's definitely different from all the riku art i seen since he actually looks like a freaking male! and idk what's up w/ all the steroid comments because, they obviously didn't do their hw on that. just i am assuming riku has a bit longer hair. i think the shorter hair look is what's really throwing people off.

now for the critics, i am not too keen on perspective yet. it looks fairly good from here. though for some reason the elbow on our right is really.. throwing me off. i think the arm (bicep portion) is sorta too long.

as for the chair, the chair is really well done :D! but i feel like the chair is hogging too much spot-light haha. maybe for this kind of pic, it would need more 'dramatic' perspective (like a more close up of riku's face, and showing less body like with those really epic 'standing-up-bird-eye-almost-directly-on-top' view.

wow sorry if that sounded strange. i don't want you to totally restart a new pic though, but probably a suggestion for the near future? C:

anyways, that's all i can think of right now that needs the most attention.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
120 out of 124 deviants thought this was fair.

First let me say that I really like this a lot! I like your use of color, and the spot light look on the chair and Riku! I really think you nailed the shadows! I like the musculature, Riku seems like he'd have a lot of lean muscle to me! You really recreated Riku's clothes in very good detail, just like they are in the games! When this was originally posted Riku's hair was probably longer, but really matches his hair style in Kingdom Hearts: Dream, Drop, Distance!!

There are just a few things that I thought could be improved upon, or changed in the future, or if you decided to redo this one. Not that I think you should redo this, it looks great to me! I do agree with the other critic that said the chair seems a little too big. It seems twice as big as Riku, which really in Kingdom Hearts isn't out of the question (Alice in Wonderland), but it might look better in a better proportion to Riku's body. Also not sure what the white glove is on Riku's left hand/arm? I didn't remember him wearing one like that, but maybe my memory is not that good. Not a huge thing though, just wonder why it's only on one hand? And a some thing, but his chin is more angular, and comes to a sharper point than I remember too. Again, maybe I'm just remembering wrong?

Over all its very, very good, and I like your work here! 5 stars all around!! I'll follow your page for future works, some of which I hope are more Kingdom Hearts work! Your very talented, I hope your art work takes you far in life! Don't give up on it, and good luck!! :-)

How much are your commissions? I'd like you to make a Sora picture. Not kid-like, not all cutesy, but a cool picture. Though, I'd like to know how much I'd have to pay?
