Thank you everyone for the nice comments on these, and sorry for being really slow about replying. I've been stupidly busy and when I'm not working all I want to do is hide. XD

Okay. Before I get critical, I just want to say congrats on drawing such a wonderful piece of artwork. Okay? Okay.

Now. First thing is, the fur is excellent. I love the brush(es) you used to create it. It adds a really realistic look towards the view.

Next thing is the eyes. I can see you blended highlights, but I don't see many shadows. This takes away from the depth and impact of the artwork. I suggest adding one more bit of light source. This will show more brightness to the picture, and will add to the technique. Also, add alot more shadows in both eyes - more in the farthest eye than the closest, as realistically, it would be farther away from the light source, resulting in more shadow.

Alright. The muzzle is perfect in shape. Yellowfang has a flattened nose, and you captured that perfectly. One thing I am concerned about is the chin - It just molds in with the neck. Use darker grays for shading ; this will add depth and will add better vision. Now, Yellowfang had many battle scars. I only see two faint ones on her muzzle ; I suggest either adding more, or making the two more bold.

Lastly, add more shading towards the left side of the drawing.

Overall, this artwork is amazing. Great job!

This captures Yellowfang perfectly, exactly how my mind pictures her.   One of my favourite Warrior characters and I'm currently reading Yellowfang's Secret.   I love the grumpy charm of this sweet old lady !!!   :)

I'm drawing in different programs (Photoshop, to name one) and then uploaded it from my computer with the "Submit" option at the top! You can draw with Muro too but I haven't really tried it out ^^; I hope that helps.

I love the way this piece looks like a painting! The fur and background are perfect.

You have definitely mastered her appearance as well as her expression, she looks exactly as I would imagine her to be.

EEEEE!!! Pretty eyes! As usual. XD Realllyyy great looking! The soft colors, fur texture! What breed is this one? I always have a hard time between British Shorthairs and Persians. But since the fur isn't too long, would I be correct in guessing British Shorthair? =D Or is the kitty some random mixed breed? I haven't read any of the Warriors books, so I have no clue if any/all are pure breds, or not. XD

I have a hard time drawing flat faced kitties as well. Even harder when they're anthros. XD -flails wildly- I was spyin' on some of your commentz!

I ENVY YOUR SKIIILLLZZZZZZZZZZ -bows down to! :heart:

Yay more thanks! :D I LOVE British Shorthairs :love: I'm not actually sure what she is - she's described as a cat with a "broad, flat face" and "messy fur" - chances are she is a mix of a few things since they are feral cats. XD The novels were written by British authors, though. I looked at photos of Persians though because of how high their nose is. Maybe you'd like these books! They're for kids, but they pull you in really good. XD

I flat faced cat anthro would be so neat! The lack of snout would make it almost more human. XD
