I remember this one! I thought it was a very good conception and creative composition; however, I also thought the center area over the book was a bit like what a beginner would do (sorry :() , and I also felt the image got a little dark and muddy.

Thanks! :D
I agree about the center area (lol I am a beginner! XD), and about the muddiness. Maybe I'll give this one a facelift... a lot of my older stuff was murky like that lol.
Thanks for the critique! I appreciate it when people take the time for constructive criticism. :)

You're welcome! I know you won best of the challenge that week, and I didn't feel you didn't deserve it. Art is so subjective, after all, and I felt whatever the judge saw in your work was probably what I liked about it yet didn't care about the muddiness. :) I'll be keeping a close look at your work if you like, but I can't type that much at once, so please be patient with my criticism, okay? :)

Lol yeah I was actually surprised I won that one. It always surprises me which deviations get the accolades (if 30 faves can truly be considered "accolades" lol), like that one and one called Beyond The Sea, both of them i wasn't terribly proud of but everyone loved them :shrug:
Yes please, I love your criticisms! :excited:
Lol of course I'll be patient, I try to be when people do me favors :D
