The skin tones are done very well, and the blush effects on the shoulders make it look very anime-like. The shading is done very well, makes it look almost realistic. Their bodies are very well proportioned, very much like real girls and not chibi (( although chibi is cute, too X3 )). I love the background, too. Definitely gives you a feeling of peace.

I just love the shine effect on the star accessories, too.
Their eyes are gorgeous. I love this piece of work. Definitely adding you to my watch. Keep up the good work! I'll be watching!

And don't get discouraged - everything comes with practice :D I practiced a LOT when I was younger, and I don't think I would be where I am today if it wasn't for that. Keep practicing <3

Wow. O.o I really wish Gaia would put out an artbook or something with all these works. I know some of the artists who create these beautiful illustrations for them are here on dA, but it's hard to find them unless you randomly stumble across them (like I did just now). I'd like to have a hard copy of all the beautiful illustrations put out to hold my hands and look at, ya know.

I can't think of anything really negative to say. I wouldn't want to bore you by pointing out silly picky things that are really just stylistic anyway. I think it's great. I can't say there is anything that bothers me about it, except maybe that the Gemini twins were male, I think. But I actually see it as a plus that you made them female. Who wants to look at men anyway? XD

I'll talk about positive stuff instead. I like the sparkle effect on their collars and the little star window for the gratuitous cleavage. The folds of their dresses are well done, and their hair is terrific with the highlights and color streaks. It's all very celestial! Stellar job! ^^

Thanks for the crit! I actually don't mind little nit-picks, considering I'm very nitpicky myself. Sometimes when you stare at something too long you start to miss the little things.

The Gemini twins are male, yes - based on Castor and Pollux. We decided to go with female characters though, because so many of the other characters for the Lonely Star were male already (and probably less flexible gender-wise.) XD
