Critiques

Dorytha,  The Maid with a Mission by AndronicusVII

Very nice, you've captured the character quite well. A couple of issues though... For one thing, the flute really bugs me. Now, if it's...

Raven as hypnotized harem slave by AndronicusVII

Let me say right off the bat that I like this picture as a picture of Raven. If I have any issues from a technical standpoint it's her ...

Ino's Sticky Lesson by solidzesnake

RiyoAlt did a far more exhaustive critique of your picture from a technical standpoint than I ever could, all I can say on that front i...

So I finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy last night.  

Not bad, I'm not unhappy to have seen it in the theater, but it looks like I'm one of the few not jumping for joy over it.  

What issues did I have?  

Well for one thing, the fights bugged me, to much jump-cutting...AGAIN!  While Groot stole every scene he was in, all to often problems were solved by a Groot Ex Machina.  Gamora was poorly written (what was her motivation again?), and I think poorly cast.  This could have been partially an issue with her fight choreographer, but Zoe Saldana just didn't carry the "badass super-assassin" thing off as well as Scarlet Johansson does.  

And the Collector was just poorly done.  While I'm not saying they should have changed him as much as they did Galactus in the FF movies, he is the same race and equal in power to Galactus, as in quite literally an eldrich abomination, so making him look like Liberace's evil cousin was kind of dumb.

Thanks for the kind words and compliment.  If you liked that story, might I suggest you check out Yvonne's picture Batgirl Peril 21.  I think you will find it equally enjoyable.

Eh, I'm not really into it when there's an actual threat of death, and even though you presented the threat as a hollow one it was a "real" attempted murder on the villains part, which kills the eroticism for me.  :shrug:

Thanks.  Wish I could tell you where it's from or who made it, but it's just something I stumbled across a few years ago.
