I am sorry if this critique is not very informative, this is the first critique I have ever written. But I will try my hardest to provide feedback for you, my friend.
Vision: I gave this a 5 star rating in vision because I could sense a sadness in this image. When I look into her eyes, I feel like there is a hardship that was experienced, or a recent problem that was faced and is yet to be overcome. The depth in this goes far in more ways then one. I cannot really put into words what I want to say for the vision. But it has that feeling of longing to it, a sadness that can't be overcome.
Originality: As for the 5 star rating in originality. The tail was a bit out there but the texture of the art itself is original in a way. It seems this person is part lizard? Or something else. But it is a ways away from the average furry. This tells of more than that. Perhaps I am not the best person to describe how this is original, maybe the next person will do a better job then I, hopefully the next person can.
Technique: I gave the technique a 5 because the the texture of the picture was alluring to me in a way. It gave a feeling to the expression on her face and a dark tone to the colors I see. Overall, the texture darkened the tone as a whole. I very much liked the shading that you used, it gives the image the feeling of depth that I mentioned earlier. The depth that makes you want to reach out and try to hold onto something that is not there. The shading and the tail. As it gets smaller it puts distance between us and the world beyond the paper. I don't know what the smear of colors in the background was about, but I found that I enjoyed that also.
Impact: I gave impact a 4 because I realized. As much as I enjoyed the technique used or the originality of the art or even the vision. It all came down to the impact that it had on me. I felt a strong sadness for the person dipicted here. Somewhere inside me, I felt that in some other world. This could have been me, perhaps deep inside it is me. This made me start thinking of my sadness and my experiences, and as I thought of all this I began to acknowledge the impact it had on me. And again, I give impact a 4 because although it had an impact. It was not very thought provoking to me.
But I am just one person, and this is just one opinion. Perhaps the next person will more accurately describe these things.
