Hi!I submitted these a while ago, so sorry if you can't remember, but I wanted to know why my Hyakki Yagyo and my Bakeneko were rejected. I would really appreciate any feedback you have to offer!

Hello, sorry if I didn't reply then, strange because I always do whenever I refuse a piece. It wasn't an easy decision because the mood and the colours were really pretty. But eventually we decided that it doesn't met the quality requirements. It mainly shows in the uncertainty regarding anatomy and the sometimes shaky strokes. But please don't feel discouraged to try again and do keep up with your art, it's really appealing already and you have great talent with colours. =)
