Vision: Very nicely presented; I always admire the way you don't have peripheral stuff around the edges like name stamps and watermarks all over the place that detracts from the actual art work that you've produced; and it always looks very neat and professional the way you don't use a background for your images.

Originality: I think it's fair to say it isn't terrifically original. The character is not original, and though in this case the sprite is original, you didn't yourself create that.

Technique: Very well ironed; I know how hard it is to produce a hama bead sprite and have it consistently ironed throughout, and you continue to do a good job.

Impact: I like the colours used here, they stand out and grab the attention of your viewers. Very vivid and attractive.

Once again I find myself dinking around on DA and thus finding something to critique. I was surprised at this piece at first. Not only is Vulpix cute as a button but I find this piece merit worthy beyond that.

Vision: I've been waiting for a piece like this. A Pokemon based off of a sprite but not a replica. By saying this you are giving yourself more artistic license. It really shows here, as the recoloring works. The reds keep Vulpix from being monochromatic and add a greater suggestion of its Fire-type. The darker browns help this contrast and keep Vulpix from looking washed out, something I noticed in its general design.

Originality: I thought about this score for awhile. The factors I listed above contribute greatly. This work is not just a Pokemon sprite made real, it's your own version. By breaking away from replication the piece is more unique. However, since the original idea is so obvious, this score remains a bit lower than the others.

Technique: Everything is in place. The shading and blending of colors is quite amazing. The work in the tail is especially good. Even when I search for the specific graduated areas, it takes more than a glance to find them. Fantastic.

Impact: Everything I have already listed is taken into consideration here. The recoloring making Vulpix pop, how the colors work together, and the impressive technique make this your most recognizable piece. I rarely exceed boundaries in ratings, but seeing as how the parts make the whole more than it is, I would say "6/5 stars."

I must say, I had to hold back a bit during this critique. I like the piece that much.
