The coloration for the pick was done really nicely and the overlapping and positioning of the pick was pretty nice. I don't want to nit pick, but there are some flaws in the piece.
Generally if you're going to a realistic rendering such as this, some things look askew. For example, at the end of the pick it looks like a layer goes over the string while a bottom layer goes under. Also at the top left of the pick, the roundness of the pick doesn't seem to go completely symmetrical with the roundness of the right side of the pick.
However, those were just said to say some flaws. It doesn't make the composition anymore graphically unappealing.
Though I could've done a better job of showing it, the overlapping issue is actually the shadow of the translucent pick going under the string while the pick itself just barely hits the top of the other string.
Thanks for a sweet review =P
Don't take the six harshly
I mean, it is a first attempt in photoshop. I remember my first crack on photoshop, I just basically did a rough coloration of some unproporation creature.
It has a nice outline to it though and the green shades are another plus.
The effect of adding more black at the bottom and then having less black going back up gives it a good fade effect. The piece itself has some a good structure to it. A ground would be nice to it though. The shading was done in a good manner, however (just in my opinion) the tail should be a bit darker when going back to give it depth. Although this is an older piece so giving a suggestion like that might not be relevant now.
Overall, nice inking, it probably took loads of ink to complete this one.
