:icondragonlover2000:
I didn't see the "critique requested" thing until after I posted that comment lmao. Anyway, since it's up I thought I might as well write another one.

....actually I don't know if I should. There really isn't much I can say that you won't hear from other people, and I can't really find anything to critique you on.

The only thing I can think to say is that the colors are a little too vibrant in the background, and while it makes the entire image really POP it kind of distracts from the overall story going on with Axel and Roxas. You also have a very stark contrast between highlights and shadows, and while that's actually really cool and again makes the picture go WOW, BAM! RIGHT IN YOUR FACE it can be a little too distracting and takes away from the image as a whole.

I'd also suggest using a few more varieties of color (not that you don't have enough as it is lmao). Try adding some different, more dull colors for the background to draw attention to the main action. You could also try making the smoke from the burning city a little darker, to not only counterbalance the incredibly bright colors from the sunset, but to add just a touch more realism. I don't know about you, but I live in Colorado (a.k.a. the state that caught on fire every other day 2k12) and smoke from huge fires can get very dark.

I don't know haha. I always try to find something you can consider 'constructive criticism" but I always come up blank because I literally can't find anything "wrong" with your art aside from details that really don't matter.

I gave you 5 stars for everything so I don't think yo need to hear me go on and on about what a fantastic job you did. That goes without saying.

I just.. wow. Why are you asking for a Critique again? I seriously can't find a flaw in here, either that or you just cast a spell on me because you're one of my favorite artists on DA. Anyways, to the picture.
The neutral color tones really blend in with the brighter view of the background, which is must I comment brilliant, you can feel the pressure and mood from just the coloring layered in place! It really makes it even. By even, I mean that considering Roxas is a knight and Axel is a pirate, these two have way different views on life and distinguishing battling methods. The mysterious coloring and added fog makes it a win/lose/win/lose situation, because you don't know who is going to win and it makes you excited and think about who will. This is my opinion at least.
With all your other drawings of this particular pairing, despite it not being affectionate and romantic, this really goes well. I can see this happening, minus the awesome outfit. You can feel the intensity between them by the determined expressions on this faces, well Roxas looks more determined, Axel is all "Oh yeah, I got this", which by the way fits both their personality. I always loved how you stuck to their canon personalities, just thought I would throw that out there.
Now, I am not dissing you on ANY of your artwork in the LEAST, but you have definitely improved on the blurring/shading, especially on the shadows raying from the ropes. It gives a wonderful, and realistic, touch to see it on the faces of these two amazing nobodys. It's not excessively blurred or caked on, so it's not eerie to the eyes and I really enjoy this piece of yours.
Let's see.. What else... One sentence of advice...
Just keep up the great work and keep those feels and effort of heart into your drawings always, that's mostly why I love them, because I know you too, love them as much as everyone else. Don't let anyone else tell you other-wise. You're a very talented woman with a unique style and it's great to see you going at it still!

And then they have wonderful hot kinky pirate sex and Roxas is like 'I'M NEVER LEAVING YOU BABY!' and Axel is like 'THAT'S OKAY BABY YOU NEVER HAVE TO' and they get married at sunset and make wonderful pirate babies together all night long =v=
This is so pretty!

Axel is going to totally raid Roxas' pants.

Ugh, I love this. I think you know I love Pirates of the Caribbean, so seeing Axel like Captain Jack Sparrow is so sexy and awesome <3333 You've created a great action shot and the shadowing on Axel looks so good. Fantastic job :heart:

Oh this is so cool! You really do draw the coolest axel and roxas stuff. The detail you put into everything is fantastic. And as someone who owns several period authentic pirate outfits and hangs out with guys from the SCA, I can say that the outfits they are wearing are brilliantly done.

I sit here and think every time you throw out yet another piece of art, "How could she get any better than this? This is so phenomenal." And then you somehow do it again and again and again. Simply beautiful.

Super cute!! Although for some reason I can't see Roxas being a knight. I feel more like he'd be a rebellious first mate :P
Wonderful job, as always, however!! Love your pirate Axel design :) for some reason, he just works as that sort of a character, eh? :3
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE MORE AND HOPE YOU'RE DOING WELL! :la:
