Well let's see, taking a good look at this and at references... (in particular, this picture of him) His one arm and hand, as someone else pointed out, is very "human" at the moment. It doesn't resemble the thin claw or the thick paw he has on either forearm. Otherwise, his neck, it is kind of thick, although the actual technique on it is really good, so it would be a shame to undo that now ^^; I think it might be survivable like that, so it's your call.

I will say that his face is completely wonderful in every which way. I would not change that for any reasons at all. Its curves and the expression are perfect, really~

SoulSpade Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, nailed the face! :iconfreddierageposeplz:

XD But seriously, I'll just have to completely redraw his arm and start over. For his neck, probably the same thing, maybe an adjustment tool to bring the lines closer to one another, and thus giving him a thinner neck; not sure what to do as far as varying thickness goes, whether his neck should get thicker going towards the torso, or remain the same throughout...

Looks like I gotta bit of work ahead of me :'D

I'm sorry! D: Agh I hate giving people critique and then having them go readjust or redraw whole parts of the art because it makes me feel so bad xD I'm always so afraid of critiquing and criticizing peoples' art, uguu.

I hope it goes well, at least.

Luckily, the quality and value of art is subjective, you cannot tell me this is not pretty freaking sweet because it is - to me. :D

My gosh, you don't even have to colour it. The very absence of coloring- something you might consider as adornment- leaves an appreciable void. Color is often a distraction, but at the moment we can just focus on this couple in this moment just before Discord's epiphany.

Fluttershy's face is just so cute and curious She's looks disgusted, offended, taxed, vexed, anxious, frighted, and even dejected all at once. She's on the cusp of having composure and completely loosing her sh-t.

Discord is a smug jerk-face. Fluttershy has just given him every ounce of trust she has, hoping he will do the right thing for her and not because she can instantly turn him to stone for 1000 years. This is a game for him. He uses sarcasm. The words projected are even in a teasing, sly font. Fluttershy's kindness is held without respect, dangling limply from his hand. How could he do this to her?!*


*I blame Angel! He crashed Fluttershy and Discord's dinner-party just as Discord's epiphany was sinking in! He was on the verge of tears!

This is great! The only thing I'll say is that I think Discord's hand looks SLIGHTLY too human. I would try making it more plainly claw or paw, but that's just one deviant's opinion. Otherwise, it's astoundingly well done.
Reply
:iconsoulspade:
SoulSpade Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, you're very right, I agree. I truly have had trouble with the 'hand' of his ^^; Any suggestions on what I can do to make it more paw-like, like the said?
Reply
:iconleveldasher:
LevelDasher Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, it depends on how you want to go about this. Because of where you cut off the left side of the image, you could make this either his left/claw or right/paw side (though it's clear you were going for his right here-the paw). Altering this might be rough- a real paw is pretty rigid, but Discord uses it more like a hand with fingers, so you were on the right track. The problem is it looks TOO MUCH like a human hand. You need to determine whether you want to keep it more to Discord's standards or true standards- hand-like or rigid.
Personally, I think trying to differentiate between a 'Discord paw' and a human hand might be tough. I would change it so that the claw is holding FS's element necklace, thus the 'palm' faces the audience. It might be slightly more detailed depending on how you go about it, but you could also have fun with that.
On a different note, I see what people mean about Discord's body not being curvy enough, but I kind of like him looking straight at her like that. It accentuates the intimidation.
Other notes: ...Everything else is great! I can't think of any other critiques! Great job!

Discord's neck doesn't really change thickness. Try making it curve in near the jaw and come out as it goes towards his chest.

Ah alrighty, I was trying to go by some of the screenshots I pulled up of him; His neck and body never seem to really change in thickness. He's essentially just a long noodle with limbs attached XD I must have made a mistake there, I'll see what I can do to fix it up. Thanks for the advice on that, Discord's kinda tricky for me ^^;
