Just by looking at this deviation, I am automatically drawn to it mainly by its colours and different shades. For example there are many contrasting shades of green used to create depth and make it seem more realistic therefore giving the viewer an overall bigger and more effective impact. As well as this, I am really appreciating all of the smoothness of the lines and the shape of everything. The creature in the left of the picture is made with a great choice of colours and is in great detail so I think that the technique of this deviation is very impressive. All in all, I quite like it well done.
Great use of compositional elements to keep our eye on the subject. The manticore *feels* viscous, and the subject has great movement. Again, only to be helpful, the subject on the right doesn't add to the piece, as I'm not sure what they're doing resting so close to the action. The only other thing I can point out is that the humanoids still seem a bit stunted and flat. But definitely an awesome piece
