For me the things that I noticed on first glance were their ears, the healing ointment and the light coming through the trees and those things made me want to keep looking to see what else would reveal itself. Looking more thoroughly I noticed the exceptional detailing in their braids and on their clothing particularly the elf on the bottom left. That detaling made me even more interested and kept me looking at the piece longer than many others have.
I really liked this piece particularly since it made me feel as though I was there watching the female elves heal the injured male elf. I was really taken by the fact that you used subdued colours for the overall piece, normally bright greens or autumnal colours are used so it was really interesting to see an alternative take.
Lovely work and a definite .
Wow! Thank you for this critique.
I am happy you like the forest so much, it took me a great deal of work. Sometimes you work on some detail over and over, and everybody likes something else...
