GCC Critique -

This drawing is amazing~ Sincerely awesome! I can nearly feel myself suffocating, no lie. I love how you made all the birds different colors and put most of the colors all together ( and to be honest the birds are adorable ). Those melting faces look so morbid and freaky, in a good way. I've always been a fan about traditional and digital clashing and you can definitely see it. But it's the only thing that I would've kept out. The gray area would've looked better in my opinion as a simple texture.

Overall - :star::star::star::star:

Thank you! I really appreciate your comments and your input--I have since discovered textures and agree that I should definitely have used them in the grey area!

This is truly amazing! I love the use of colors in the traditional part, not only how you outlined the birds in different colors, but also how you colored everything else. The idea of suffocating comes across as well (and I really like the bird in the lower left corner).

I really love this piece . When i first saw it i was amazed but the birds and the center of this itself. I love how you used all the different colors for the birds. It was a very interesting and unique idea and i admire your work.
