Ok, NOW I can do a Critique~
So, to start off, he looks absolutely amazing! Of course, you haven't shaded him yet- and I bet he'll look even sexier, and even better once you do- but he's still so stunning~ :heart:

Now, to the actual critiquing of the picture.
First of all, I love what you did with his eyes. The purple, and red outlining it... it's just so neat to look at. Honestly, I don't know what the race is that he's supposed to be, but I would assume you nailed it. You can defiantly tell he is a lion, and the bat wing just makes him look even more badass.~
The shoes are simple, but they give him a more, "I don't care what you think," look. His coat also keeps it simple, as do the straps over his waist.
His colors are quite simple as well~ And I approve of that. White and off-blue go together well. At least you didn't make him pink with yellow legs, white hair, purple fluffs, etc. Some people make it look unrealistic by making their characters too colorful. Keeping him simple looking makes him look even more, "realistic." You can easily imagine him in the Sonic universe (Whether you want to or not, that's your choice).

But yes, from the tiniest details, to the larger ones, he looks so serious, so sexy, so amazing~ You are a wonderful artist, and you did a great job!~ :heart:

Oh boy... A "Godmod the Lion" type FC... This is going to get ugly..

Obviously playing too much Final Fantasy with the One wing thing....

Demonic Looking? Yes! Alien? Perhaps. Going to turn you to shreddies? Oh Hell Yeah!

You might as well called him a Gargoyle cause he is ugly! Mind you that his glance is making me feel a bit uneasy....

Without a clue what a Necro-Vyspirian is, This Lion looks as if he's one step removed from a Sideshow Freak.

However, with that rant aside, Tau looks like an antagonist that could drive many frail minds to the edge of sanity just to put into work of how to discribe him.

Overall, A Stunningly made FC.

Ak, can't believe it too me till just now to get to this.

It's a very interesting design. Good if you were going for a demon looking character, which works well with antagonist characters (it probably would work with protagonists too, but it would depend on how you do it).

Anyways, great work with this.

This character is simply amazing, as well as the artwork. I love the colors you chose for him, and I also absolutely love the design. I love how his mane is spikey and not straight or curly-ish like other lions, and the one wing remembers me a bit of Final Fantasy :giggle: But I think is a great touch!!

He looks like he'd be a very fierce opponent, and a very serious guy ^^

To give the character flaws and weaknesses... He is unable to fly, and can affect his attitude and personality because he is grounded when the rest of his race can fly...

Also to highlight the fact that he is a defective Necro-Vyspirian... the bio will really show this when its done <3

:iconkiraitheechidna:
KiraitheEchidna Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yes. I don't like it when people don't show any weakness in their characters. That is a needed feature in a character. How boring would they be without flaws...

That bio must take a while to make. I don't know how Amelia does it.

Since the older design of him was a normal Mobian, what made you want to make him a Necro-Vyspirian, besides "Just because."? Sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions!

Listening to Music. Reading the lyrics to one song got me thinking. Its called "Pestilence and Rapture" and the name alone gives me the chills. Thinking my main villian was planning a biological disaster (plague, pestilence) and some spiritual uprising (rapture)

Tau becomes a false prophet, leading people to slaughter... Those who die for what they believe, even though its not true...

Hmm...intresting. Sounds like a good villian and a good song. Might look it up later. Who is the artist?

It's funny how that works. When things go bad, we call "911." Someone will come and save us. Then you take that away. Leave us in the dark for us to defend. After a while, it can get to our heads. We do just about anything that will end the misery, or anyone. Either that, or we just reject all of reality.

I don't mind. I like hearing what others listen to. I don't want to be a person who only listens to one genre (Expecially those people who only listen to Country. Blah! I can't stand Country music!). I don't want to be picky and selfish. And I listen to Metal every here and there, although it is more of a Folk-Metal. Got that from listening to what my older brother likes. But most of my intrest in Rock music is more Alternative Rock. Odd, huh?

Alright, caution! You've been warned! MAY BE LOUD!!!

You can really hear the apocalyptic feel to it, and when it slows down, it has that creepy vibe... And with the lyrics too...

Also, the entire 6 peice album really inspires a lot of art for some reason, this song just being for Tau.

This is actually one of their heavier songs. The vocalist has a absolutely gorgeous singing voice... I recomend checking their other songs IF you do happento like this kind of music ^^;
