Wow I don't even know where to begin with this! This picture truly had me stunned at first.
Vision: Like I said, this picture really made me speechless when I first saw it. I am amazed! The power and emotion in this characters face along with the background sends very powerful and angry emotions coming from the character itself. The stance and the poise along with the emotion all fit together perfectly.
Originality: In terms of originality, I cannot give it a full rating because I have very often seen pictures with a fiery background and a character of any type standing before it with anything from a horrified expression to one of anger or defiance like I am seeing here. The character cannot count because every persons character is unique and is their own. Also because this character is an animal you got points back for that. I am used to seeing people standing before a fire with the look seen here. I am used to seeing animals looking afraid of the fire, I normally don't see animal characters drawn looking brave and defiant in the face of fire.
Technique: The technique used here is fantastic! I watched the speedpaint prior to this and I was very impressed with your skills in the program you used. I like the slight touch of textures used in the rocks he is standing on. Gives it an even more real and 3D touch. The fire too looks very real and 3D. My only complaint however is how the fire was drawn and added. (Warning this next part about the fire may not make much sense DX) The fire itself looks very real but it also looks very placed and almost just looks like a flat image placed behind the character. I think it would have helped if you blended the fire a bit more into the ground as well as maybe making it weave into the trees as well as catching some on fire or making the smolder. Maybe also a steadily thinning stream of fire going way into the background. To me it just looks like the fire is one concentrated cluster and tamed. Fire is wild and uncontrollable so you shouldn't be afraid to let it roam a little free in your drawing! The lighting and shading of this picture is also very nice. One thing I would like to add is the lighting involving the fire. Here it looks like the fire is very close to the dog but you have very little lighting on the outer lines of the dog making it seem like the fire is farther back than what it looks like here. Maybe add a bit more orange to the shading as well as some more intense shadowing to the front of the character farthest away from the fire? Also in terms of shading I really like the contrast and various different tones and shades used in the face! You really captured every wrinkle and the overall snarl on his face very very well. The smoke looks perfect and very real except The placement has me a bit off. Is there more fire in front of the character or is that fog maybe? I think you should have added more smoke coming from the actual fire seen itself. It still looks very nice though (: Also I feel the trees could have used just a tad bit more details. Maybe some texturing there too? Just so they don't look so flat. The anatomy looks great (In my views anyways, I'm definitely no expert on anatomy) And also (this is just my silly personal opinion) maybe add a bit of a glare/shine coming from the dog tags to reflect the light of the fire? That would probably look neat ^u^ (endsillyopinion) Oh wait, Another silly opinion that came to my head is maybe have the character glancing back at the flames they are stopped in front of? Don't get me wrong the, the direct look they are sending straight out of the picture is great! I feel like the character here is looking straight at me. Kind of freaked me out at first ^^;
Impact: I like the intense glow added to the eyes to add to the intensity of the scene itself. It is already very dramatic but the eyes sealed the deal for me! Like I said up at the start, when I clicked on this picture I was left completely speechless and at a loss for words. (if you know me then you would know that is rare for me XD) I was so overcome by the emotions flowing towards me from this single image; it was incredible! I have no complaints whatsoever about the impact. You did a perfect job of nailing the emotion you were trying to capture and it just looks perfect. The defiant stance also makes me appreciate the character. I don't know anything about this dogs personality but I feel like I can get a very clear idea based from this. Great job!

Hope you liked the critique. I feel like I was a bit bossy or judging in the technique section, sorry D:
Once again though, I really adore this picture!
