Very nicely done.  The brush strokes are fine and delicate, I really like the concept, what is he actually hunting?  Civilized man looking for a native female mate?  I like the use of the grass brush strokes in the foreground diminishing to a more general grass going to the background.  Adds depth and makes the hunter and his prey really stand out.  Nice use of natural tones too!

I like the narrative that can be seen immediately, much potential for making this into a series if you wanted to. The foliage is a bit lazy, lighting a bit too ambiguous in parts, and anatomy shading could use a bit of work most notably on the man's arms and hands.. but other than that it's a really lovely scene. The unicorn so crisp and good looking, but it looks as though it was just pasted on--possibly because the color and shading is a bit too different from what's around it. The dust in the light is a very nice detail.

v nice work! :)

Thanks a lot for your critique! I'll probably try to fix the archer's anatomy, I really wanted to get this one out and rushed that part. I'll have to see about the foliage, I didn't want to over-detail it, but haven't yet found a good balance. Again, thanks a lot!

Totally! It certainly makes sense for areas that are out of focus, or less detailed to draw the viewer to other spots.. but the bark on the trees is much more detailed so I just find it an odd contrast. :0

Huh, I never realized that I had detailed the bark that much! I started the picture by drawing the trees sometime in January, I think, and ended the whole thing with the foliage. I guess that is why you should never detail one part of your work before even starting on the others...

The feeling, the tension, is captured in this composition.
A moment frozen in time, something sinister that one can feel, as well as see from what you've created.
The light, the shadow, you've done a good job to capture the imagination, making narrative believable.
Well done :-)
