Want a critique on a piece of art but no-one seem interested?

What you can expect;
Well here's my Critique folder, feel free to browse.…

What you can't expect is undue praise.  You will get a fair and unbiased critique of the piece, along with suggestions and strengths and weaknesses.  Exactly the same sort of thing you see in the folder in the link.

What you're paying for here is my time and honest opinion, not a rave review :P

Original Character or Fan Character Story - Literature Commission
This is a story featuring either your original character or a brand new character.  The more details you provide of what you want, the closer it will be to your vision.  You can provide me with a complete plot or just a title or theme, or anything in between.
This type of work involves a lot of feedback and communication (questions :P) to keep the details right (I can't just guess the name of your first love for example :P)

I've been invited to co-host a Contest with :iconakaszik: and :iconsharka-larim: who are both accomplished and beautiful artists and writers (I feel so humbled beside them :P)

The idea of the contest is simple.  You take your own OC and create a crossover piece; either visual art or literature, placing your character either in one of the available settings, or dressing them in the recognisable fashions of one of those settings.
That's why you've suddenly seen a rise in my Kitholme based stuff recently :)

There are a number of great prizes and the contest runs until 10th May so you have plenty of time.
Check out all the details here;
Your OC in a crossover - contestMake your OC crossovering given setting. Any author welcome. All mediums accepted. There are seven prizes. Contestants themselves choose winners. Let your OC be involved in an adventure.
Contest theme
Show your OC in crossover with Vapama’s, Dark Rose’s  or Kithholme's elements. There are two possibilities:
First is your OC in a garment and background borrowed directly from Vapama, Dark Rose or Kithholme. It must be easy to notice.
Second is showing your OC with any of Vapama’s or Dark Rose’s characters. They supposed to helping each other or competing to get a legendary blade, that is a symbol of power to adjudicate “things that are Caesar's”.


Characters: OCs guideFashion: in widget "About the bunch..."Teens of Vapama gallery: http://vapam

If you have any questions about the settings, fashions, or the contest itself then don't hesitate to contact one of the co-hosts.

Ho-ho!  I knew this was going to be a fun and interesting place.  As MacArthur said, Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back in time for breakfast., or close enough (he did smoke a pipe).
