OK, second critique I've ever written! I don't do this often, so bear with me haha.

SO wow, this is a really wonderful piece. It's easy to tell from the detail just how much heart you've thrown into it from all the detail, and I like how you blended the style so well with your own. I'm a big fan of those glittery sparkles and how well they flow. Also totally digging North and Bunny in particular! The characters have pretty wacky designs but you managed to catch them accurately, so well done :heart:

Stuff I think could be improved:
Not much, really! But this is a critique so if I had to be kinda nitpicky:

- Tooth's upper body looks a bit stiff - I think it's mainly the arms, too. I was thinking maybe her torso could curve a little more, and her right hand looks like it's bent at a bit of an odd angle. It's physically possible to make that position, but it's really uncomfortable with a locked arm, so it would make more sense if her right arm is bent slightly.

- The ground could possibly do with more shadow definition? I can see you've shaded it where they're standing, but I think you could've maybe gone even darker as some of the characters are large and it seems likely they'd cast a stronger shadow.

The last one is sorta my own personal opinion, so you don't really have to take it into consideration. But I think you could have possibly pushed the "sparkle" concept even further here. The characters are magical and shiny - you could have given Tooth's feathers more sheen to make them really pop and look more 3D, and the frosting on Jack's hoodie. Also, with all that gold dust flying around it seems likely that some of the light would reflect off the characters.
Of course this is just a suggestion and it may not really be your style to add loads of shine, and that's totally cool! But I think with these character especially, it's a great opportunity to push your lighting and colouring techniques and really go for it to give the picture an even more magical and atmospheric emotion.

Woah... I think I'm done. XD Hope that helped a bit! Anyway, keep up the fantastic work, I always look forward to seeing more from you.

I need to watch this movie.  :(  Every time I try, my sister just does NOT want to see it, because she had already and thought it was terrible.  Still, our opinions differ all the time and I just NEED to see the movie!  This is a wonderful piece, I really do like it.  :)
