I really like the composition - the use of positive and negative space are great with the crisp lines. Overall it looks simplistic until you really look closer, then you see all the intricate line. I love the minimalist use of color and strong contrast - it really makes the picture pop.

The background almost looks like an afterthought. I would prefer the circle be more... circular - especially on the upper left and top where it really stands out. The red lines could be a bit bolder similar to the rest of the work, but it's ok the way it is.

Overall a very nice piece - I love your style.

The overall line art and colouring in this piece is very well done. You have a good eye for line weight, shading, and making colours work together. Your artistic flare to the sun and deer makes this piece looks unique.

The picture could be improved if the deer's legs and feet weren't cut off though. You don't need to show the entirety of an subject all the time, but in this case the cut off sections feel a bit awkward. This could be fixed if the dear were a bit smaller.

However, as a whole, this piece looks great. Keep up the good work!
