First of all, I'd like to say that I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I love seeing good art from it since it's so underrated, especially ones that are as detailed as this one.

I love how you captured the mood of this whole scene, with all of the blues and blacks and how you captured Kida. Your style stays real to the character and you can instantly tell that it's her other than the fact that she is not cartoony or anatomically disproportionate. I also love how detailed you are about the Atlantian writing in the background, especially since finding the writing on the internet is pretty hard and learning it even harder.

However, as much as this piece stands out, I find one problem with it: her pose. I love the use of the arms and most of her upper body, but below her sternum is what bugs me. The lower half of her body looks very awkward and stiff. When you watch the scene in the movie, Kida's body is free flowing and completely under the control of the crystal and feels no intention to break free from it. In here, she doesn't look like it at all and, to me, she doesn't look as relaxed as I'd picture her to be.

Of course, this is your interpretation since it's far from what the "Disnola" style looks like, but personally if you wanted to capture the power of this scene in the film, the use of her body language is what I feel to be one of the important parts of interpreting this part of the movie.

Overall, though, it's a stunning piece of work and your use of values is really striking :) Keep up the great Disney work!

The colors are very appropriate the hues of blue are just fantastic. The pose could be more flow but still nice overall. The alantlanian language flowing about is also very nice. The hue of her skin I feel should be on the darker side and prehaps her features should be more africanized because thats how she appears more so in the film. The backgroud is well done again the colors are great and I also love her ankle braclet it looks like a photo of a real anklet, the backgroud also apears like a real photo, which shows awesome skill. Overall well done.

the painting job itself is really good.......but why does she looks soooo.....white? Kida has very pronounced features and darker skin. Other than that I think it's very pretty

Ver nice work Magik. One thing I would suggest based on this work, is focus on other body parts from now on. Your hands across the works are really well drawn, this one being incredibly nice considering hands. However, compared to her hands and her face, her belly and legs (specially the knees) have gotten very little attention. Try to balance things out :)
