Not really much to suggest because it is not finished. I guess just to say, don't overwork it because your style has a certain freshness to it that is easily ruined if you worry about making every line clean and perfect. I know, it's the artist's perennial dilemna; when is it finished? When to quit.

This is a very nice piece. The owner will be thrilled
Thank you for the suggestions, I hadn't thought about trying to keep it from getting overworked so I'll make sure to be more careful about that.

I originally drew the pose off a blend of her reference pictures and I'm using a different one for the shading, so that's probably why the neck looks off. I wish I had just stuck to one picture though, it would have saved a lot of brain damage!

Thank you! Lol, mine always tend to face right. XD I'll definitely be posting more in-progress pictures as they get closer to being finished. :)

I have a bunch of references but none are quite what I'm picturing it to be and I'm having a hard time trying to make up what a whole forest, ground, and cliff should look like. I'd love any suggestions on this one. :)

It's people like you that inspire me to draw again... Seriously, this image is flipping amazing! I love it, the whole thing would look pretty freaking awesome when finished, I like the trees, I really do, it all looks so good!

TralissaAndalusians: Thank you so much! I haven't worked on it in ages, but I think I might give it a try now that I've gotten a lot more used to drawing with a tablet. :)

Thanks, I'm using a combination of around 5-7 colors for his coat, so I'm glad you like it. :)

Thanks :) The only problem is that it's very time-consuming, so I hope I can get myself to actually finish it!
