You did a great job on both men. They looks amazing in realistic style, especially Frank I really like the idea of this picture. It captures my OCs's personality well
Wow the chibi versions of Frank and Cherry, how cute. The Background is also so sweet and peaceful. ♥
Cherry look really cute here with cheerful colors (your coloring technique is also lovable). Also it looks close to the original design ♫
A mere headshot, but it is amazing. I love your color choice and the cheerful BG as well.
Cool idea and lovely coloring. The background makes me remember the flower field in Howl's Moving castle: so gentle and peaceful
I like the shoujo's look of this picture ♥ So romantic ^^~
The artist had managed a great layout to this picture. Policia's hair looks awesome.
I just love the coloring and the sparkling BG of this ^^ Also Cherry 's emotion is so lovely ♫
The semi realistic style here is amazing, especially Pet- the wolf. It brings out a fearsome feeling ♥ I wish it had follow the original design more...

- CS: 9/10. Since this is just a headshot, there is not much about it, except that I wish her pearl necklaces can be a little longer xD
+ Coloring: 9/10. I love this realistic painting style. Her glittering eyes are the excellent highligts in this painting, it makes her look like a France's doll ♫ However her lips could be a little more plumper. The BG is simple.

- CS: 9.5/10. It could be better if Frank's eyes look a lil' bit more emotionless.

+ Anatomy: 10/10. Dont see anything wrong ~~
=> (8+10)/20 = 9/10

+ Coloring: 9/10. I love this pastel colors ♫ Also the sink looks amazing ... Just the BG looks simple somehow
+ Anatomy: 9/10. Frank's hands are a little bit weird ~
=> (9+9)/20 = 9/10
- Idea: 9/10 . This idea is really new and outta my imagination ♪ Cherry's emotion is opposed to the original idea of mine: a possitive child who always smile like an angel... But this is very reasonable too, since Cherry is also hard working and naive ♫ And Frank's face is like 'How can my lil' sis be this cute I wanna hug her ^.^~!~'... ♫ It makes me imagine a lot, how cute ;v; ♥

- CS: 9/10. In general it looks very nice and go exact with the original design, but somehow Sebastian's nose a lil' too red for me lol , although I know it's the artist's style xD
+ Coloring: 10/10. The dark and mysterious colors really suit the original story theme. The BG is OMGGGG it's so amazing...What a perfect combination from 3 elemnets: Ice, Water and Darkness ... The artist did care about the characters's information before drawing xD
+ Anatomy: 9.5/10. I think Sebastian's hand is a lil weird, but whatever xD ~
=> (10+9.5)/20 = 9.75/10
- Idea: 9.5/10 . At first, I didnt really impress with this painting, but the more I look into it, the more things I find out ~ I love it that the artist draw Pet howling on the top , he looks wild and strong ^.^ ~~ Also Frank and Policia's expressions are drawn very exactly. And, how interesting, I dont know how but Sebastian's gesture in this picture is accidently coincided to the story line, thanks to which Policia has her first sympathy to Sebastian. Moreover, the detailed wooden frame brings the painting more mystical feeling ♥ Also, I love the trio (or tetrad xD) of this picture
==>Rate : (9 +9.75 + 9.5)/30 = 9.41/10
