Ok, so I'm now obsessed over doing Adobe water colour art! ^o^ Here is one I REALLY love that I made. It's a Moltres in the rain. It looks cool with all the cloud colour differs and all.

The beak looks a little odd to me, but it still is good. Keep up the work!

I think the only problem is that the beak is... Too....long. But otherwise, it's great!

Yay! Critique time! XD Okay, lessee here... first the good stuff!
1. Very cute pose! I love the bright eyed expression! X3
2. Original setting. You wouldn't normally think of what a moltres would look like in a rainstorm, now would you? :P
3. Good use of strong, bright colors. ^_~ You convey a very strong sense of hope and determination in this picture. We can see how tough the birdie is, lol.

Now, the not so good stuff/improvements. :D
1. The others are right about the beak. Really, it looks more like a bill than a beak... you could almost find that thing on a Ho-oh, lol.
2. The fire could use some improvement. The big splotches of solid color are really messing things up here... what you need is to blend the borders a little bit, and make the tongues of flame leap off of the main blobs of fire, lol. Pointy flames might not necessarily be best in this setting, but I wonder what they would look like, just the same...
3. Try not to make your cloud base so bright and so sharply defined. In rainstorms, the clouds are usually going to look darker than the rest of the surroundings, unless of course the whole place is being illuminated by lightning. Also, try making the base a little wispier and transparent. Have it ebb off more gradually, rather than coming to an abrupt stop.
4. Keep your subject in mind when having it in a rainshower. This is a fire bird... there are flames leaping right off of its body. If it's raining on those flames, wouldn't it stand to reason that the water would turn to steam once it hits the fire, or even the bird in general? Maybe some clouds of steam billowing off of him would look more dramatic. And on the parts of him where the water just hits and soaks in, try to show that by making his outline kind of blurry and distorted... almost highlighted in mist. You can see examples of that in a lot of anime. By the same token, the rain doesn't normally come down in single little lines like you have. Normally, you see long lines that stretch nearly all the way down through the image. Of course, this varies with how strong the rainfall is. ^_~

Whew! I've said a lot, ne? Meh, they're just suggestions. You can take 'em or leave 'em. :P It's up to you.

Hmmm... the setting looks good enough, even the colors (good job), but the problem is the beak and the body. Its body looks like Torchic with flaming wings. But anyways, good job.
