:icongarsondee:
As usual your artwork is in a league of it's own, these animated images are an absolute joy to sit and take in. This one isn't, I think, your best work to date but it's a different direction to your previous Asian inspired pieces and a worthy experiment.

First of all the figure. It very much depends on what you were attempting to create because the character (for me) is just a little bit too muscular to be sexy. The costume design is good, but perhaps a little less original than some of your previous works - though it does create a very comic book style to it. The face feels like it's a little oddly proportioned, but that isn't likely to be a mistake - but rather a combination of the angle the viewer takes against the lighting and hair across her face. Going to black so quickly from left to right certainly creates a dramatic look to the piece, but a small amount of bounced or secondary light on the right side of her face may help to fill in the missing eye and balance the face up. (please don't take as me suggesting you can't paint faces, in all your previous works the faces are both exotic and have hidden beauty).

As for the background and other elements, the flares on the dagger are particularly stunning, the dagger itself is unique and provides an excellect focus for the piece. It took me a long time of looking to notice the glint in her eye between blinks and the gentle breathing motion of her chest. This combined with the gentle green background lighting effect and the flame really impresses me with the subtle nature of what could easily have been overly animated and distracting. The only effect that could perhaps have done with further work is the small globes of white light that spark from the dagger's tip, they are just a little too simple and obvious.

I greatly look forwards to your next piece, these animated images are so inspiring and fantastic that at some point I hope to produce a sci-fi inspired piece of my own - which I intend to credit you for the inspiration.

Your pieces have the enviable quality of pulling the viewer right into their world. And keeping them stuck there for awhile. In a few seconds, we've already drawn up a back story in our minds of what we're looking at.

What struck me first about this one was the super-sharp, other worldly dagger. That was also the first thing we saw when it was loading. So to be honest, I thought that the dagger would definitely be an interactive element and was a little disappointed that it wasn't. I expected it would do something like spin, flash, disappear or something else if I clicked on it.

As for the girl...I absolutely LOVE her strong personality, her poise, confidence and most of all her facial expression. But even all that seems to be daring us to touch the dagger. I also just wanted to say that in the close-up, she doesn't seem to be making eye-contact with us although there isn't that issue in the normal view. But I love that you give us these close-ups. it allows us to appreciate the time and thought you've put in to all the drawing and animation details.

You have one more enviable quality that you must be congratulated upon and that is "subtlety". The breathing, blinking, atmospheric smoke and lights. You don't go over the top with these. This also keeps the viewer stuck on your page for a long time, looking for the movement and taking in the detail.

All in all, INSPIRATIONAL!

This is going to sound odd, but what sells me on this one is her abs.  I don't know why, but I don't often see such a good mix of feminine sensuality and strong, well defined, musculature.

More often than not, the balance goes too far in either direction, not so here.  Great work!

what astonished me most was not her smile, her icy blade, the mist off the blade, or even her winking. it was the friggin smoke coming out of the pot in the corner xD icant believe you would add such small detail, it definetly completes the image ^^

I fail. I JUST realized she was in some sort of temple or something. I thought she was in an alleyway, but then again, I was focused on her and mainly on that blade, so I didn't really pay attention to the background. Personally, I think this would look better if she was in an alleyway in a city, since it would make the knife look less like a treasure or something and more like some sort of trademark weapon or at least something with less of an ancient feel. XD

hey there, very nice concept. I just wanna know, when you export to after effects and do all the effects and stuff... what type of file did you save it into? is this a gif? im pretty sure is not jpeg right?

I still cant figure out the steps of creating something like that awesome with the programs. :)
