Critique by GenkiKinky Sep 8, 2012, 11:27:52 AM
Vision:

a beautiful picture led by extravagant detail and design, and as a person who loves deeply detailed art, i have to say, im impress. the colors catches every corner of the eye and the face shown above brilliantly represents the title and theme sorrow. the only complaint is how the picture appears as nothing more than colorful plants sprayed with liquid. a closer look clearly shows a face, but if only more body was shown than plants(excuse me if am wrong.).

originality:

extravagant and well done. i will probably never ever find a picture like this ever again.

technique:

did you really use tea to add an drip effect to this? if you did brilliant. plan paper with colors and a drawing is boring. especially if its flat color. adding a little pizzazz like stickers, glitter, even flowers, will make even the most similar of pictures look different and very unique.

impact:

im use to art like this, but the amazement that it bestowed upon me when i saw how much effort went into this is very well done.
What do you think?

Is the title for this from the magpie rhyme?
One for sorrow, two for joy.
Three for a girl, four for a boy.
Five for silver, six for gold.
Seven for a secret never to be told.

I love this piece, by the way :3 Beautiful color <3

Red reflections? Or unrelated quote?

Seems so fitting.

Breathtaking... Did you mix Tea with Ink or did you use
"pure" Tea?! Interesting idea, by the way. I remember
hearing of the use of coffee, but tea?!
