I love this so much! I love it so much that I can't critique it--it is already amazing in my book :D It is one of my favs and if it was a print it would be on my wishlist (go submit NOW i tell you!) I really love the colors and how you combined the different medias. :worship:

I even went through the trouble to finding an appropriate emoticon, and I am a lazy person. So that is really saying something :D

if you go to your main page on the side there's a button called Submit a Print, it's right under Submit Deviation. You can just follow the steps and it should be easy.

Maybe I see Mucha's inspiration everywhere, but this is kind of... looking like Mucha's style... :P

Also you've captured the determined look and energy that hummingbirds have in real life. Too many times I see them cuted down and that bothers me. But you managed to capture their grace without patronizing them.

I love how you mixed your media. The ink especially works well here, and it rarely succeeds when incorporated into the outlines of a form. I love outlines anyway and I think they take a lot of bad rap because they are hard to pull off.

This feel that the hummingbird makes it seem like everything's still, because hummingbirds move so fast and seem to never stay still. Congratulations on the DD!

That is stunning! The entire piece has this wonderful, soft glow that is still warm and brilliant. The use of the colors and designs are beautiful as well. I love how the styles interchange, too. An amazing piece overall.

I saw you post this on the resent deviations in the home page, and I have to say; Being a rookie in painting has it's ups when you come on here and see what some more experianced artists have in store.. This is one of the most beautiful original pieces I've seen in a long time, the texture you created on the hummingbird and then outlining it in a bold but gentle black brings it to the point of reminding me about " Okami" on the Ps2..
I for one became more dazzled by this piece when I clicked on it and saw the little details the thumbnail couldint even compair to.. The work you put into this with the wonderful pose and tones playing in such Blended array bring about a more brighter feel thats way easier on the eyes then some artists I've seen.

I really admire your skills, Thank you for posting it here so people like myself can fully enjoy the insperation it holds.

Wow I wish you would make this a print so I could buy it. It's so beautiful.

I love your tribal detailing, it gives a great effect. Takes it away from being too real.

I like this . It has a very chinese-watercolour feel to it. The squares add that bit of "modernity" and interest to what might have otherwise been an ordinary pic. Very very neat i must say. good job !
