    Good girl Emma, could sell art to Hallmark for Christmas cards, asks for imaginary Pokemon instead.

    We should feature some of this art on the site. It's really good.

    This wasn't graded yet? SWEET MINE
    /LICK

    Special Delivery: I love it. I love it! My favourite holiday is Christmas and OMG the air down here totally smells like christmas (fun fact). I love how you totally put a Delibird as Santa Claus that is GENIUS. In Pokemon form. Plus his expression is just totally lulz worthy.

    But I have a few issues with this. Firstly, is the moon. That's totally your light source, but the halo of light around it is so little. -5 >: Like, Stantler's nose (which was also genius in pokemon form) has a bigger halo than the moon does, and that just doesn't make sense. -10 ): Especially because it's a full moon, so it should be at its absolute brightest, yknow?

    Which brings me to the lighting. You have some highlights on. Geez, I don't even know what to call this. The sleigh legs. I'll call them that. You have highlights on the sleigh leg that's closest to us that really shouldn't be there. It should be between the sleigh and the light source, so that side should be particularly dark, except for the curly Q part on the end. That would be the only part that light actually hits. -5

    Now on Stanler, his chest should be lit up where you have that dark spot at. You have it right underneath his collar, but above it is just void of light lol. The collar also abruptly stops where his neck ends. The tiniest little curve right there could have made it wrap around his neck and look whole. xD -10

    Probably my biggest problem with this, is Stanler's awkward position in comparison with the sleigh. Why's he way off to the right of it? Shouldn't he be in front of the sleigh? Stantler has tons of movement in this picture, but the sleigh kind of doesn't, when it should have the same momentum as Stantler lol. -10

    Over all, this is still a beautiful piece and I give it a 60.

    Off Season: Hot damn this has got to be one of my favourites I've seen from you. It's deeply entrancing and very calm, which is exactly how it should be. Let's refer to our handy dandy BW2 PokeDex. "Staring at its antlers creates an odd sensation as if one were being drawn into their centers." You've certainly got that type of feel going on.

    But, like your first picture, I see some lighting issues here as well. I can't really tell where your light source is coming from. It kind of looks like its coming from way in the back, but then the lighting on Stantler makes it appear like you have another source to the right at Stantler's level. -10

    However, your Stantler just completely blows me away. The fur is perfectly visible, as you can tell by looking at the white on his belly and chest. You have the correct amount of detail on him. Not too much, not too little. We can just barely see the muscles and bone in that back leg of his, PLUS all of the fur, which is GREAT. All that depth bro. Sometimes it's hard to pull off animals in art because of this reason, but you definitely accomplished this.

    Except he doesn't have hooves LOL. He's got one foot off the ground, I should totally see that hoof at least. XD -5

    I like how you have fog in this picture, except it gets less and less realistic the closer it gets to Stantler, which kinda hurts the fog effect. The transition from fog to grass behind his tail is really abrupt, like it should have been smoothed out a bit more. -5

    Other than that, I can't find anything else wrong with this. The foliage, which is also usually hard, looks really good, and dat grass man. MAN, this is so nice that I feel like you should show these people if you have a facebook/feel like it lol.

    Amazing job as usual, Emma. I totally give this an 80, more than enough for this Pokemon.

    Stantler is CAPTURED. <3

    I'm not inactive. I'm just hiding in the tall grass waiting for someone to trigger "A WILD FC APPEARED!."
