Muy buena. La imagen que tienes es bastante amplia sobre lo que intentas hacer. Deja en claro un mestizaje (see what I did there?) entre un elemento estadounidense con la cultura mexicana. Bastante original el hacer un personaje propio con nombre nahua representando los símbolos partios. La técnica es muy buena y es una mezlca entre el papel y el lápiz típico con los elementos de los códices, lo cual es bastante impresionante y fregón. Un buen impacto que refleja el estilo artístico mexicano y un fragmento de nuestra cultura, lo cual puede dejar curioso a alguien para que investigue más. Exelente trabajo.

I love the characters!!!! Great meaning, character and dynamic between the two of them; seems like a great partnership. For the art, I would like to first say that I am not an anemia artist myself, but would still love to provide you feedback. Both animals are done very well, and I can get a feeling of who they are by the expressions on their faces. When the snake wraps around the white eagle, it seems you went from using the natural flow of the snake to align it correctly with the brown piece of jewelry the eagle has on his/her leg. I think it would have flowed better if you would have continued to use the flow of his/her natural curves as you did wit the snake wrapping around the other foot of the eagle. With that, I also think a little more detail could have been put into the eagles feet. It seems very basic compared to the rest of piece which is very detailed. I also think that maybe putting just a light shade around where they are standing could help this as well. I hope this helps a little, and I cant wait to get some feedback on the piece i submitted in the gallery. Overall, I ove this work and as I was writing about it and examining it I loved even more. Amazing work. Thank you for sharing.

I'm not going to lie-- I don't know this show, but I know that a lot of people like it. All that aside, though! I really like the way that you colored this. The blending isn't choppy or distict. Instead, I find it to be very smooth and appealing to the eye. I also like the representation here. The animals are both, in their own right, very aptly showing off the characteristics you described in the description. There's just a really great sense of expression you show in the wings of the pegasus. Really great job!

Jaja Me sorprendió bastante encontrarte en ese concurso, no pensé que me toparía a alguien que conociera aquí en DA por allá. xD
Buen dibujo, debo decirte que tanto el nombre como la explicación del personaje me encantaron. Ademas las facciones del personaje se me hacen especialmente simpáticas.

Aunque debo decirte que la anatomía tiene sus detallitos (Las patas traseras especialmente), fuera de ello el dibujo es bastante bueno y los colores son agradables.

Suerte en el concurso! :)

trate de aplicar lo que aprendí de contraste y equilibrio del color, esa fue la parte que me agrado de este dibujo :D
Muchas gracias :) ^^
