11x14 Red Panda.
I'm still working on this, but I need some help with the background and snow by its foot. It's laying in snow but I'm having troue making it look realistic. Has anyone done snow before? I'd love examples!

CC please!

Shadows in snow are either blue to reflect the sky, or gray under a cloudy sky. It may even pick up the color of fur and such if it is a sunny day with reflections, but this you will have to research.

I LOVE the fur on his tail, so realistic!

There is a distinct white outline on his right side that you may want to address.
