The painting work is really well done, and Nimrais did a good job with the line art. I love his expression.

Good pose and expression. Painting was done cery well. But, the right bicep is too big, compared to the left. I'm also having difficulty figuring out what the specks around the fox are; that's my only comment.

Overall, well done to the oth of you!

Your watercolouring is awesome. Which sort of colours do you use?

This is what I want to achieve with watercolors. I'm just beginning, and hope you could recommend any good books? Anything that helped you get to where you are in skill level? If I'm just another midge, and I should quit whining about your ear, I understand. You are a great artist, and I can understand if you have better things to do than bother with insignificant small fry like me.

Not that I've ever had much problem with them - I just take my mum walking XD she attracts them more than I do.

Very nicely done, though - it does capture the right feeling

I'm sorry, what are midges? I've never seen an anthro in Scottish clothing before, only Native American, Asain, and modern if I remember. I luv that expression that he has ^^ so comical
