as I encounter the dark,
night is slowly rising,
absorbing dawn's spark."

It looks as it is a bird, but you can something different too. I see with the help of the colour and name of it. Night Rise. That is very impressive. Colours are picked very good and they're streaming almost perfect. Behind that distant shadow, it looks as if there are something...something with light. It gives us to see what our imagination expects. There are something interesting too. On what is it? Light? Maybe. But, I like how you leave some colours reunion, that we should say what's it. It looks very dreamy and mystery. One of the most important things, I think, is that we don't see it, like drawing. But like art or even alive. Shadownessand lightness are very professional here. I don't know what is bad here, but the best in my opinion are the coulours tuning.
This critique is my first.

This is my first critique.

The drawing is captivating, the use of dark colours (especially royal colours of blue and purple) help to draw focus to the bird/creature in the centre which is emphasised with slightly lighter colours and the light source behind and reflected around it.

The picture is fairly balanced by the addition of three wings beneath to the two larger wings above. It gives it a lovely mystical feel, the way the three wings have been coloured and lined could also be taken as flowing robes as well as feathers (depending on your take) - you could also see the wings in the centre as an almost praying pose.

The light focus of whites, lilacs/violet are haunting against the dark background, remaining me of willo-wisps and the ones around the "bird" itself also resemble a flower (with the dark blue head being the centre the petals extend from).

The watercolour has been used to supeb effect. The being is original, elegant and haunting (like a crane). I can interpret it in many ways, imagine many scenerios as to the purpose and creation of such a creature - which speaks volumes as to how well the artist can craft and shape visions that can take flight in the imagination.

(The only reason I have not given full marks on originality is everyone is influenced by something. I feel I can attach imagery and concepts on such a brilliant piece and felt it would be safer that way.)

An artist to watch - I for one await the next creation with joy.

Firstly, you're amazing at wings <4 I personally find them hard xD But I haven't had enough practice probably
I love how the picture has details in the centre with the glowing blue and then spreads out
It's cool bro~
It's cool~
/shot
But seriously, there's an amazing feel of mystic around it 8D
...Does the bird-thing have a name yet?
Because I would recommend Steve~

Your technique, as always, is lovely. The colors chosen are good, and the light colors behind the bird frame it well. I'll admit I find the bird a little creepy. With the title, my first thought was that it was some sort of dark phoenix, but it doesn't really fit that. It's a very snaky or draconic looking bird. The multiple wings are part of the (to me) creep factor, but that's also a nice touch. What is supposed to be between it and the light, though? Is that part of the bird? If so, I would say add more detail so it looks like part of the bird (the tail or whatever). I don't think it's part of the bird....
