I can't stop staring at this image. It's amazingly done. Here are some points I'd bring up.
The perspective and pose are brilliant, it looks very much like Max. I hate it when people draw a fan-character and don't get his/her personality right, but I thin you've captured Max's here.
The colours are very good, as is the texture. An over-load of bright colours would be irritating and not suit with Max at all, but this works very well. The maroon of her jacket is gorgeous. I also love the boots.
Her hair is well done as well, I so fail at hair -.- also love the eyes....
And then of course the background~ So pretty, not so much that it takes over the picture but Enough to make you smile. Great job - this is worth every favourite it'll ever get and more!
What do you think?

12 out of 13 deviants thought this was fair.

This picture caught my eye right away with its bright colors!
Let's start out positive, I like the outfit design, it's true to character, and the colors are great(the shirt's color is a little girly for Max though). The hair style is perfect, the one thing that deviation artists always mess up(in my opinion) is Max's hair style, and you did it dead-on, congrats :) I also like the background you chose, it ruff looking but still pretty, just like Max! I also really love the skin color with its highlights and blush, I can never imagine what Max's skin color should look like, but now I think it should look exactly like this. The pose is cool, looks like she just landed on a ledge.

Negatives: I know this is silly, but I feel like she would have cuts and dirt all over her, but maybe this is just one of those times she took at bath. Again, shirt color is a little girly, and I would of liked to see more hardcore boots on her feet. I would rather of had her hair a solid color, no white looking highlights, it would of been a nice break for my eyes with all the bright colors.

Neutral comment: It's cool how you slightly changed the eye shape from Lee's version.

Overall, great job, and I hope you make many more fanart for Maximum Ride :)

I'm a HUGE fan of maximum ride. I've just recently created an account. I've been searching from afar at a lot of different work. I REALLY love this picture. If it weren't a drawing, I think she'd float of the page and smile at me 👍👍👍
