okay,im just going to get all the praise out of the way first. dont think this is really harsh afterwards, i just dont want to repeat myself. okay, first of, the costume is increadable... i am QUITE jelous. i also love the ice...ness on his face, and how it doesnt over take all of it. it just gives you a little taste of what he really is. the backdrop it also nice, but not perfict. i'll get to that in a minute. im also a huge fan of the hair. i have very short hair and when i cosplay, i need a wig... and it sucks. your hair is perfict for this.
okay. now the actual critiquing. i think the body posture is off. it doesnt look natual at all, and the expression doesnt really suit the drawing. although you look just like loki, and that makes me fangirl beyond belife so i cant really complain. the background could be more suited to loki... i dont know, i like it, but it doesnt seem right with the theme of the picture.
all in all, i have a few complaints, but at the end of the day, i love this picture. you look just like loki and... you made me fangirl. HARD. i wish you would teach me your ways. that is all.
First critique Oh my gosh. Let me start by saying that the clothes look amazing. The amount of detail and effort and time is very apparent in this. Amazing. The hair and makeup (not including the frost giant aspects, im getting to that next) is just so good! Now, the best, beyond a doubt, part of this picture. The blue tint to his skin and the tattoos/markings that appear along with them are simply incredible. Don't even get me started on the eyes either. The way they look like they are actual eyes is incredible.
All in all, this is the best representation of Loki that I have ever seen in my time on DA. The amount of effort, editing, lighting, shadow manipulation... All of it. It's incredible.
Yet another great photo! You are one of my favourite Loki cosplayers for a reason and photos like this are part of that reason Great job, keep it up! Seriously, keep the photo shoots coming because they're just great
Since I've done a critique on your cosplay work before, I won't this time around since my views on the hair, costume and actor haven't changed. The choice of setting is interesting... a church? Hard to tell. I don't understand the strange exposure blur on the left of the image; I don't no if it's an artistic preference, I personally don't care for it but that's why the word is called "personally". Is there a filter on the image? The skin is very bright & has thus lost a good bit of detail -- I like detail so I say that's a detraction. The eyes are a bit dark. I don't know if the effect was done with contacts or digitally. If it was done with contacts, I think that digitally lightening them up would have helped. I love that beginning to or fading from the frost giant blue skin/red eyes! Maybe a little more of the skin could be done, not half of the face but closer to that than what's already done. Also, maybe some of the neck & the left hand. I'm sure the artist/actor probably thought of all sorts of ideas on what they wanted to achieve here & mine are nothing new, but just letting you know that if you have a checklist that mentions everything I've said, go ahead & stick some marks on it so you can see what your fans want to see, okay? Keep them coming! You do wonderful work!

You are THE BEST Loki cosplayer on DA (make that EVER) apart from Tom himself. You don't even look that much like Tom... you just are so in character, and still look so awesome in the costume that you are the best. Hands down.
