Originality- I have to be honest, if seen a few fire and ice animals before, but these designs are quite different! I love the sweet look on one, and the daring on the other. The backgrounds were also a nice touch.
Technique- The work is very neat and the brush strokes are neat.the colors are nicely used. Although, I'm not to crazy about the center, where the red and blue meet. The two colors kind of mix together, but I'd like to see them solid in the center.
Over all, I'd give it a 7/10 It's a wonderful piece of art!
