(this is my first critque so sorry if its not that good)
I like how the lines are nice and clean, no jaggies, and how you can see that its a flower very clearly, the colors suit it well, i like the green and the reddy purple sort of pink color.
i like you're technique on how you did the leaves and the flower, and of course the shading, although it could have been a tiny bit better on the actualy flower i feel anyway.
The overal impact for me is this is really good, heaps of people would struggly with something like this and yet again heaps of people would be able to do something like this, but i like the whole concept of it, like you said in the discription, it may have been that bit better if it was animated, but it looks good without animation, infact unless you could come up with some really good idea for an animation with this, i think it might even ruin it.
Very nice! I like the bright colors! Also, nice shading. My only problems with it is it is far too symmetrical and un-dynamic. You need to make it a bit more playful But apart from that it's still awesome. Good job!
Symmetrical means it's the same on both sides, like a face. Dynamism is hard to explain. It's basically the art of making a picture look interesting and moving though shape and form. Your flower has a leaf that's higher on one side than the other, breaking the symmetry (a good thing in my opinion), but it doesn't make the flower jumpy and alive. Here: [link] You'll notice that some of the images are made of shapes and colors alone, but they have a large amount of motion. That's dynamism .
