Looking at this reminds me of how much I slaved myself drawing the background /wipes tears

If you noticed, I've disabled comments on some deviations and the reason for that is because I don't have the time to reply nor sleep for the month of June - September. It's thesis time + 5 major subjects!!! I'm fueled by coffee and motivated by deadlines. I spontaneously post/reblog/update my other sites because that's what I do when I procrastinate then regret is so much because I will sacrifice sleep or some posts have been queued and scheduled to keep accounts alive! I hope it wasn't a bother disabling comments. Don't worry I won't disable on this one!

Summer Tea Time by rosuuri ( Suggested by 0w0b and Featured by cinyu )
Okay, So I'd like to start out by saying this is an absolutely gorgeous piece! Your lighting and details are splendid! It's obvious you put a lot of work into it. It's a very relaxing picture, and I can't help but wonder what she is looking at. Her little grin is adorable as well~ I love the details on the cake and the rabbit. I've studied this for a while, so here begins my critique. Please do not take this harshly, I love your works.

-Her legs are a bit weird when you first look at them (The position) But its quickly fixed with a little closer inspection.

-Personally, I like pictures that tell a story, Without and prior knowledge of your manga, this probably would be lost on me. Sorry if I'm being nit picky, I just prefer them that way.

-The grass is a little thin and short, but I'm not a grass professional, and that's usually left for the artist to decide.

That's actually it. That's all I can really critique, since the rest is very very pretty.

Very nice job, Ms. Rosuuri!

I must say, I absolutely love this! This is a great piece. There are so many details that I probably couldn't even begin to add to my own pieces of work at my current skill level, and they fit very well. I especially love the ways you shined the light of the sun on the character. I love how you drew the background and the grass, along with the character and the details of the rabbit. This whole piece makes a peaceful scenery, and I love how I'm filled with a sense of calm while looking at this piece. Everything looks great and perfect at a first glance.

However, there are some subtle mistakes/errors I see in this piece that are noticeable on this piece at a second glance. Let's start from top to bottom. One, I noticed that the character's face looks a fit flat. The side of the face, that faces away from the viewer, looks like it's a little too thin and pushed together. Makes it look a little flat and without definition, though the definition is clearly visible. I also notice with a second glance that if you were to remove the teacup, her chin would be uncharacteristically chubby compared to her cheeks and the rest of her body.

Now lets start with that hand holding the teacup handle. If I were to do that specific hand pose while holding the cup, my hand would be in a great amount of discomfort. It's an odd hand pose that makes her look like she's about to claw the cup, and overall most people would not even think of holding a teacup in that way. I would suggest making only the index finger and thumb that curved, and leaving the rest in a curled down/withdrawn position.

Last but not least, let's get to the leg closest to the rabbit/viewer. It looks noticeably shorter than the one next to it, and that kneecap looks a bit off with the position of the calf. You should make that leg a bit longer and have the curve of the calf a bit longer and thinner.

Overall, I'd give this piece an 8/10. The overall presentation, at first glance, is superb, but upon closer examination there are obvious errors that the artist would usually miss/overlook. Hope this helped!
