I see. He looks as somber as the cat. :D
They're a perfect match.

Oh lovely! Watercolours are one of my favourite mediums, and they do work so well for the atmosphere of a rainy day.

Какой милый, сонный уголок. В хмарь за окном не дает упасть кошка, притягивая к себе взгляд и наполняя его теплотой. Но книга, видимо, настолько нудная, дождь настолько убаюкивающий непрерывным шуршанием, что Максимиллиан заснул. ;)

Wow. This is awesome. Your lighting is so lifelike. It's dark and you know the sky is having a bad weather but you still keep everything lighted. I like it. Thanks for sharing.

Aaaaahhhhhh, the atmosphere for this picture is so amazing, you always manage to capture the sense of a rainy day so well-!!!  The values are so beautiful, and I just, I love the subtle lighting/shading on the cat, it's so perfectly done, and you managed to make the windowpanes look somehow so organic.... <3<3<3

I can almost taste the air outside that window.  This is really great.  I feel like it's the tail end of autumn or the beginning of winter, when the air is cold and crips, but it's not cold enough to snow.  Kind of reminds me of home a little bit :3

I like the idea of this composition, but I feel like it's just a hair off somehow.  Maybe it's because your figure is cut off right at the hip.  In art school the teachers were always scolding people for cutting figures off right at their joints.  It makes a weird tangent with the figure and the edge of the frame.  It's not terrible in this one (I've seen some really bad tangents in my time lol!), it just creates a really subtle trap for the eye.  I get stuck looking at the book, in the space between his knee and his elbow.  I feel like my eye should want to wander all through that beautiful window you painted, but instead I keep getting anchored to the bottom of the frame.

That being said, I REALLY love your color choices.  It's subtle, but not boring.  There's all kind of blues and purples and greens in this painting that, at first glance, appears to be mostly gray.  I personally find it really impressive.  Also you've got just enough warm tones in the main subjects to make them standout from their environment, but not appear to be out of place.  Again, I'm impressed and I love this piece!

Thank you very much for your opinion )) I can't argue with you since I know about the figure being cropped in a wrong way. All I can say is "I was unable to correct it when I noticed that mistake and I was very upset because of it". Anyway it's nice to know that serious people who aren't indifferent to other's mistakes still exist here ) I really appreciate it :3

Oh gosh, I'm so glad!  I'm always sort of anxious because nobody seems to give feedback anymore, and I don't want to offend anyone by pointing things out like that.  At te same time, though, it just seems kind of hallow to give nothing but positive feedback.  Like how're people supposed to grow from that?  Constructive criticism, I always say *nodnod*  It's good to know that people still want that :3

Criticism (even constructive one) is a very delicate thing so... it's difficult to be useful with your comments and do not offend someone at the same moment.
I believe that a lot of artists are self-critical enough to move on but serious feedback (both positive and critic) is never enough anyway (well... at least for those who are very serious to their arts).
