Madoka by darue Madoka by darue
So, I really liked Madoka.
Perhaps almost as much as Gurren Lagann or Clannad: AS. Or maybe just as much. I dunno, but either way Madoka was awesome, and I needed to make some fanart. :)

Thanks to moatdd of tenminutedrawing for giving me quite a useful lesson with this painting. :)

Also, critiques are encouraged - my desire for them burns with the intensity of a thousand suns.

I've always been a huge fan of Madoka, and this piece certainly added to my love of the series!
Vision - I very much enjoyed the concept of this piece. The vision is clear and is quite beautiful. Having Madoka reach out above her was a great idea! I also like the fact that you incorporated light AND dark into this, rather than just one of them. 5 starts for vision!
Originality - While there are a lot of pictures of Madoka in her goddess-like form (Oh who am I kidding MADOKA IS GO-///shot///), I haven't really seen any quite like this... as hackneyed as this may sound, I really can't explain it. There's just something in this piece that I've never seen before in a picture of her... well, 5 stars for originality!
Technique - Perfect, hands down. Madoka's expression fits this picture PERFECTLY, the clouds look VERY well done, and the conversion between the light and dark is very smooth and life-like... it's almost as if they're moving! Incorporating that was a very good idea; so much so, that I might not have liked this picture as much as I do if it was just Madoka front and center with only a few clouds around her. Basically, this picture has depth and a lot of heart! 5 starts on technique.
Impact - I'll be honest; I went into a bit of a daze when I saw this picture. I was just focusing on it for so long because it was so beautiful and plain awesome! It's heartwarming, and (since I know the story) makes me think about Madoka's journey from being a regular girl, to a magical girl, to a goddess! DEFINITELY 5 starts on impact!
Last words - Well, all I can say now is well done and WELL DONE! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of your art! Keep it up! :D
