    That is a really sweet and evocative sketch of the Great Dane. It has much more feeling than a super detailed finished piece likely would. There are two things that catch my eye, as a form of critique, and I only mention them becuase you do want to improve and you have so much latent talent:

    The pupils don't quite match. One (dog's right eye) appears to be looking straight forward, while his other eye appears to be looking upward.

    The darks are really nice in this drawing, but you might need to add one more level of darkness in order to help pop the muzzle out from the background (the shadowed neck). Even if they aren't quite as different in tonal value, by making the shadow near the collar area darker, it will help make the muzzle come straight out, off the page better.

    This is a very nice piece. I would suggest NOT messing with it, but just keep my suggestions in mind and move on to the next one. I bet your mom just loved it.
    Be sure to get some spray fixative to spray the drawings once they are finished so they cannot smudge or smear anymore. HOwever, be aware that no erasing can happen once it is "fixed". And put your signature and date in an artful location/size.

    Carry on, dear!

    I love the great dane - I can see what tinyliny is saying though but you'd have to be looking at it with a critical eye to notice
    Try looking for some photos of Aragorn - you might get some better views of his eyes somewhere that you can use

    I think the mismatched eyes add character to the Great Dane personally :)

    Thanks so much for all the comments! I'm sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on in four days--busy with my job, the horses, etc. I've been doing a whole lot of studying, too. I can't believe how many online courses and tests you have to take to be a Sonic employee!

    Tinyliny~ Thanks for the critique!

    I actually triple checked his pupil placement. They are that way in the ref. I don't know why, but that's what I drew since that's what I saw. I can probably go ahead and make the shadow darker though.

    Thanks all for your comments and critiques!

    Thank you, Rachel! That's kinda cool we have the same name. :)

    I might try to work on The Lord of the Rings drawing today and/or tomorrow if I have time. I just finished Driver's ED, so that's finally over! I got 100% on the written test and the teacher said I did well driving. Yay.

    I don't have to go to work until next week, too.

    Here's what I have so far. Haven't done too much because life is just taking over! In a good way, but still. It does look better in person...

    Wow! That looks really good so far. I bet it will look fantastic when it finished!
