A new OC, Lacrima <3 Actually old, but never drew him xD

Anyway this is for =Greykitty's project ;u; A collection of cheetah images to be made for Michael, a to-be 10 year old boy who's been fighting various illnesses and even underwent surgery. He loves cheetahs <3 :hug:

________
Anyway I thought I'd explain the image a bit ;u;
I chose Lacrima since he's a king cheetah, which to me gives a sense of power <3 Not only because cheetahs are already powerful creatures but the idea just adds more 'fluff' to it ;U;

The pose is also something I tried, for a more powerful, regal, kingly, feel. This boy has been fighting to many things at the age of 9. I say he's a brave little kid ;u;

And finally the window, on the other side is a vast open sky and another cheetah, it's mirror image ;u; If you can see the little motion blurs I put and the eye glow, as if it was leaping (moving) and free. I guess Michael would be the cheetah on our side atm. You're almost there kid! Just hang on <3


Ah well as a third fact, cheetahs are endangered. Their numbers in the wild are currently dwindling.

Want to save these animals?
Join #AnimalAwareness to show your support for saving endangered and abused animals and contribute to our galleries to spread the awareness!

They're classified as 'vulnerable' but still, these big cats are poached for their fur.

Well, enjoy the image <3
~Also haven't requested a critique in a while so I'd love to see my improvement! Please don't rate it 5 stars as people have done before ^^ Nothing is perfect~ I used to share all critiques but I'm only sharing them if you be fair~

First off the idea behind this does reflect power. So you did a good job getting the idea across which can sometimes be a troubling aspect for any artist. The colors are simple, this keeps the piece from getting too busy. They are bright and vibrant and very appealing to the eye. However there is no clear focal point that I can see. Also the lighting is a bit confusing, to me it looks like it is coming from three sides at once. Otherwise the line art and coloring are done very neatly. This piece has character and originality. Overall the piece is executed very nicely and neatly.
What do you think?

A beautiful drawing ;A;
Vision: amazing.
Originality: Cheetahs are not original... but it's a KING cheetah! And look at that super-original background!!
Technique: Great! The cheetah is anatomically correct, and its designs are unique and beautiful. The background glass is extravagant, the reflection is spectacular, and I notice the little cracks and flaws in the glass wall. I think that the chest should curve a little more, smoothly, instead of just being fluffy. x3
Impact: It had a HUGE impact on me. Like time can freeze, you know? Like you said, suspended animation, frozen in mid-jump along a cracking glass wall. I also love the glowing eyes and streaks.

It's a very beautiful piece but the only thing I can say that bothers me, is the reflection's head's angle. In the reflection, the cheetah should be leaning its head from the other side. Also, the foot that is 'behind' for the cheetah, for the reflection it should be 'in front', if you know what I mean, since that's the leg that is from the glass's side.
I'm not good with animals so I can't give critic over the anatomy and such but I didn't see anyone else mention the head's angle so here you go ^u^ Hope this helps~

Oh why thanks for the comment ^^
And haha I know the concept seems confusing at first, but it wasn’t meant to be a reflection ^~^ Because the background is glass haha not exactly a mirror ;U; I’ll explain it~
The blurred out cheetah is basically another cheetah, like his other self, that is leaping on the other side of the glass. I distorted the image a bit because Michael isn’t capable of doing such things atm x3 But it’s more like two cheetahs ;u; One on our side, and the other on the other side of the glass. But both the same person. I probably should’ve put another reflection anyway but lol that would’ve been confusing x3 So yup haha it isn’t a reflection ^^; but thank you!
