I really love this picture. The colors are bright (the water accents Dei's eyes well), portraying a feeling of optimism. As for Deidara, it's a nice drawing of him as a child. Proportions look pretty good. I like what you did with the accenting and shading, specifically on his hair and on the boardwalk. To be honest, however, I hadn't known what the object in his hand was until I read the description. I can clearly see the bird's form now, but maybe try giving it a darker outline or just more contrast in comparison to Deidara's skin. Other than that, it's gorgeous.
Likes: I absolutely love the colors in this. They really stand out to me. The shading is a really great touch along with it too. I love EVERYTHING.I find it neat to the fact you took EVEN more time and put petals falling in there.
Dislikes: Haha, I don't dislike anything. But if I'd have to choose it's be the fact he doesn't have a head band thing.
This is an amazing peice of artwork you've got yourself here. The colors, the shading, the balance! It all is just extraordinary and outstanding from my point of view.
It's really pretty and colorful, but I think it's just a tad too bright in general. The water reflections you can keep--it's beautiful--but his hair and the docks are too similar in color and kind of "lose themselves" a little.
I know, what do I know? I have shit for drawings, but this actually made my eyes tear up looking at it for more than a minute (and YES, I was blinking). It's just what I feel, you know? Yes, bright and sunny days, optimism, sunny-side up...
