2-10-2014 The Strongest Warrior by StellarWatcher 2-10-2014 The Strongest Warrior by StellarWatcher
I'm so proud of this! This took me about 17 hours but it was worth it! X3 This is what I can do! I finally know that I can really do! I'm going to get even better! >D

Do you want to see the speed paint for this? Here is a link to it! Is kind of lengthy to be warned. www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bKYCA…

Galacta Knight belongs to Hal Laboratory

Ah, this brings back memories. One of the hardest guys to fight, but such a sad backstory... Meta Knight's perfect equal in combat, finally beaten at last... *W*

The color is wonderful. It bears hints of the pastel-colored DreamLand, and it stays true to the game's cartoony art style, but the warrior's eyes and the blue shades in the background have a deep sadness in them. It looks less like a challenge to fight and more of a reluctance, which is awesome considering the way he acts in the game.

I love how you created a sense of space in.... space.... with galaxies and tiny stars in the background, and paid special attention to the Knight's wings, making each individual feather visible. Attention to detail is important, and most of the time it can improve a piece by a lot. XD

Don't be afraid to stretch you fan art a bit to make it more original and more of your own. Your arena was spot-on, just like the original, and that's not a bad thing, but maybe on your next piece you could experiment a bit, try a new style and see if you like it. XD

I think it looks great, though! Keep up the good work. Don't think that staying true to a fandom's art style is a bad thing; I love the nostalgia that pieces like this give me. That moment when you see it and think, "Oh, I remember him!" is priceless.
Beautiful work! <3

This looks very beatiful! You have improved alot o:
The only thing that I would mention is the colour of the wings. They slightly blend in with the blue colour of the background and you cannot notice them as easily as Galacta's body, which has been shaded with a completely different colour.
