Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-24
The Seven-color Warrior by *Haychel ( Suggested by TommyGK and Featured by alexandrasalas )
This is just really amazing. Ho-Oh looks very lively and the shading and lighting makes him really pop out from the background. You can actually see his marvelous plumage, which a good majority of fan art doesn't do, and the only other time I can remember Ho-Oh being this vibrant was in SoulSilver, and this piece here looks marvelous. I just simply love this. You can really see Ho-Oh truly living up to his name as the Rainbow Pokemon with all the colors being displayed very proudly. This is a wonderful piece of work, here. (Also shocked that I can give a critique as a non-subby person (for now), but I digress.) Very very wonderful.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
65 out of 68 deviants thought this was fair.

The colours really catch my attention and how Ho-oh has detail that makes it look realistic is just plain awesome. Also the background does sute Ho-oh's colour scheme. The shading and lighting are really well done. Ho-oh's feathers also look lively. As well as me being a pokemon fan I give this deviation 5 stars all the way and this is my first critique so it is not easy writing one (or rating it). Overall I think this deviation really did deserve a daily deviation. In short to this critique: this piece looks like a whole tonne of effort had been put into it.

The colours in this are divine, very saturated and bright! And how you've drawn the sun's rays behind Ho-Oh is astonishing.
Congrats on the DD! Very well deserved, I can see the effort that has been poured into this piece. :D
