Hope you don’t mind if I critique a little.
Spazz - Great job on the dog. Did you use a photo for reference? You really have a grasp of the highlights. The amount of white and highlight makes it look like it should be a white dog. Even on a white subject though, don’t be shy with the shadows. Make your blacks really black. It will make the image pop. I love how dark the left eye is. I don’t know if it’s just picture quality, but the right eye looks much lighter. The black nose could use some more love too. I love the pose of the pup and you really captured the wrinkles in the face. Keep up the good work.
Betta_lover – What a fun dragon! I love the pose of the legs! They’re almost feline looking which makes it quite interesting as dragon. You’re starting to understand shadows. Good job! With shadows, be aware that they are EVERYWHERE! Don’t forget to add them to the tail and under the belly. You’ve chosen a single light source (upper right). That should help you with your shadows a little bit. Always remind you where your light is and then add shadows to the other side of the object. You seem to understand some anatomy as well. I’d be interested in seeing some of your other critters sometime.
