Now if you had said the third cutest I would have gone along with you! :) It does capture the little one in the photo hinting at a bit of mischief along the way. Geesh and it's one of those dinky sizes too - well done! That splash of colour on top of his nose would be perfect just a nanosecond lighter I think.

Actually, we have a cuter one here but Casey is a worthy runner up.

The aceo is just a perfect, gestural treatment of a terrific subject. Good crop too. Please post worse work in order to garner criticism.

Some really nice paint application here. I know it's tiny, but suggest a bit better feathering of edges of nose with fur; and add slightly lighter colour to create nose higher-light shape and create definition for nostrils -- easily discerned in reference. You owe that to Casey!

Hey everyone! Casey thanks you (she's not too fond of the nose treatment either) and I thank you. I have no idea why I painted her looking to the right when the photo ref had her looking left but I know I'll be painting her again.
Corby - she likes to eat "Frosty Paws" which are a frozen soy treat in a dixie cup. When done her mustache is clumped together and hard as a rock.
