This is a great idea/concept!
I love how you've done it <3
If I may offer something:

I'm not sure how you normally color/draw but, maybe try working on shading darker to give it the more realistic feel (more on fur-less parts than those with - and maybe darkening or emphasizing the spots). And then maybe fix the whiskers? I'm not sure if they're supposed to be furry like the rest of it....

So yeah... there's my two cents. I really really love it, just darken up he shadows a bit ^^ Otherwise, I feel like the execution is pretty good. Maybe even try throwing in some other shades of fur color to expand on it (if you get what I mean?).

Sorry... I hope I'm not coming off as mean ^^;

Wow thank you so much for the critique! It's very much appreciated!

I definitely need to approve on shading and lighting! So I will have to fix this :)

Also, the whiskers were supposed to be furless and one single strand, but I probably could blend it better and add some more texture.

Oh the fur D: SO MUCH TIME. I choose 3 different colors, but I suppose another color or two couldn't hurt c:

And nope, I'm glad you give me one :)

^^ I'm glad you weren't mad :3

Oh okay, then for the whiskers a little more blending.

For shading on the fur you could try adding and blending in some oranges and browns as well as darker and lighter yellows. I'm no expert or anything so you can disregard ^^ But sometimes the most unexpected colors will bring a piece together.

I have one more thing to add (o.o omg I'm taking up so much of your time and butting in here): the plated parts of it, perhaps try making them look.....smoother is the word? (it will help with the horns and ear) They look kind of out of place and almost fur like. idk....I'm probably just being overly critical... sorry >.<

CalicoGoldfish Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll definitely try that next time for the fur, or correct it whenever I have time.

Nope, that's okay, you're not. I understand what your pointing out. I was trying to add texture, but that didn't work lol. I'll have to figure out a different way :3

Thanks for all your insight c:
