PLEASE, NEGATIVE CRITIQUES ARE NOT WELCOME. THESE ARE ARTISTS INTERPRETATIONS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON VARIOUS STORIES THAT ALL DIFFER FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THANK YOU. NEGATIVE COMMENTS WILL BE DELETED.



This awesome sketch art card of Elen from Celtic (Welsh) Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Anastasia Catris :iconanastasiacatris: for our Classic Mythology III trading card set.




Elen – Known as (Elen of the ways) she appears in the epic myth the Mabinogian. Here she magically built highways for her soldiers to protect the country. She is an antlered goddess, her antlers showing her free nature spirit. Her hair is long and red, often entangled with twigs and leaves. Her white limbs glows in the shadows and shine in the moonlight. Her green eyes, full of mischief, hold the secret of the Ways.

I LOVE this!

But I do want to point out based on the description that there is a HUGE difference between a negative critique and a negative comment. Critique is supposed to help someone improve, not insult artwork. And critique is not about showering something with praise. An insult, on the other hand, has every right to be removed. But we have to be able to tell the difference between helpful constructive critique and insulting negative comments. We HAVE to be able to take healthy criticism because nothing is perfect and, when posting anything online, we are opening ourselves to critique whether we ask for it or not. We can only hope it's constructive.

Lucky for me and for the artist, I have no negative critique for this piece anyway because it's beautiful and I don't see anywhere it could be improved right now. But if I did, or if someone else does, I strongly suggest allowing them to say it because they're not necessarily insulting the work, and critique helps people grow as artists. Just some advice is all. You don't have to take it, it's just not a good look to censor honest/constructive critique, and doesn't help the artist at all.

I wish this artist the best and hope to see more of their work in the future :heart:

We just don't like critiques only because we hire these artists specifically for their style of art. We wouldn't post art if we thought it was bad looking. Everyone has a different style and interpretation of themes and subjects. Not everyone draws anatomy, etc... perfectly. We like to be diverse with artists and styles.

We've had quite a few people in the past reply with comments that were insulting to the artist or subject. We tend to be very overprotective of our artists and business sometimes. We try to be as respective as we can to people's opinions as long as they are not insulting. We don't mind critiques as long as the person is respectable to the artist.

Well, critiquing doesn't mean someone thinks it's bad looking! But I understand, and I get the desire to protect your artists from hate and insult. I also respect that you replied, thoroughly and maturely. Carry on :)

Reminds me of Merida, from Disney's BRAVE.
