Great complementary colors, light and composition. Logging in such a cozy place makes it home. The light on the log, and the tip, even the roster, you have made the details in the right place. It works with its warm color against the cold blue. The chimney is a great detail also. The vase adds curiosity and storytelling because there is two flowers I am wandering about the rest. The simplicity of the back ground turns it into something mysterious. You aimed for children books but this could be animation. I would love to see the short of this Congratulations for the simple but effective work.
Firstly, I would like to bring to light that this beautiful rendition is curiously ground-breaking. The technique you have used is admirably incredible. It is obvious to me that you applied yourself to the fullest with your maximum range of powers. The shape of this piece is exactly correct for the message that I expect you are trying to create, but with thought this comment is likely fruitless. Although I must say, I think that your implementation of anatomy could of been handled better as I expect that it wasn't able to equal the brilliance observable in the whole of the artwork. Finally I would like to announce that it has been a joy to write this comment for you and I feel it will allow you to enhance your already masterful piece.
I agree with Lumanaru's critique above that it looks like it could be a cover for a children's book; masterfully done I might add. However, I disagree with their statement about yearning to know more about the story being a bad thing. It's certainly fine for some pieces to tell the whole story, but I think it's equally acceptable for artwork to drawn the viewer in compelling them to want more.
A final thought: I love your use of light. The bright colors contrasted by the dark approaching night is what drew me to look in the first place. I'll certainly be browsing your other works. Wonderfully done.
Ha! Been there. It makes me wonder... Is there a little house like that inside the mind of each and every single living thing (including gators, goldfish, and the cliff itself) or is it a coincidence so many are built? I think the trick is getting all that out of one, but finding the bravery to add to it, or even leave it in that hidden place(for someone to fin) and go to build a new one for a few years...
A picture doesn't have to be complicated to be really great. Sometimes the simplest picture can say so much. It inspires your imagination to come up with a story. You are not allowed to learn a story, only if you do not have imagination. Like so many pieces of art, it should inspire you to think, and this one does that in a wonderful way. I like that a story inspired you to paint this, because it inspires a story. Covers to stories are sometimes done to portray a story line, does that mean that it isn't good anymore? - No. Great work and very well done!
Also, can someone explain to me what "implementation of anatomy" means?
The only thing that I would liked to have seen, is stars in this scene, but it is not needed by any means.
