They said that there will never be an end to improving, and especially in your case I could say that that is true. Your art hasn't only been improving by technique, but also by originality and color palettes.

What I see here is an interesting work of art - some kind of a deity of time and light. The character is incredibly well designed, the colors go surprisingly well together and all the little accessories just add something to it that keeps us looking at it. However, assuming that the base animal, the animal this was inspired from, is a deer, there are some odds with the anatomy to be seen.

Comparing the width of the torso (body between front and back legs) to the width of the neck, the torso seems to be really thick or the neck really too thin. Also the back could be a tad longer and the rump straighter - see pictures of deer, they don't really curve much, and the tail should start from a higher point (tails are extensions of the spine).

Another thing that could be improved here is the composition - The character appears too much in the center and the background is too wide for it. You must be careful not to make it look like the character is sinking inside the background.

But overall this is a fantastic piece of artwork. The colors go really well together and, I'm saying it again, that character is just plain gorgeous. Your deer drawings always manage to surprise the viewer somehow with all the stone-steady thought and originality put into them. It might be a bit dark theme and color palette, but still, it is very pleasing to look at. :)

it looks nice
Oh my god, Frii, this is A-mazing. I really love the character and the title, I like how you got inspired by a great HS soundtrack and thought of this. It's really beautiful, keep drawing, you're improving a lot.
There's just one thing you can work on, about the deer, it's like a png file with transparent background on this background, next time, you can try and make the legs darker or something, so it looks more realistic? I don't know.
But still, I think it's perfect.

aha I get what you mean, it doesn't really look as if he's actually standing on the ground. I didn't really think about it when I was 'done' with the picture but I've noticed it too, and yes that could definitely get changed.
anyways thanks for the mini critique and kind words~
