Hi Wendee,

Could you post the resource that you painted this from...that would help tremendously.

Nice job overall. My eye goes right to the cute little tongue. It appears somewhat flat and stuck to the panda's snoot. Just a little extra modeling on the under side of the tongue, a bit of shadow on the top side of the tongue (right under the nose) and along side the fur would give it an even more effective 3D appearance. It is tough to paint a straight on shot with pure foreshortening to do the work for you, but you have handled it well.

Hi Wendee,

Thanks for posting the original resource.

If you squint and look at just the panda's face, the lightest areas are on the snoot and upper left side of the head. If you lower the value of the rest of the head, these areas will advance forward even more.

Great job on the eyes, where the viewer looks first.

Diane
