WOW!! your kitty is one kitty with an attitude! beautiful!

All three are very nice! With the cat, though, you might want to give it more shadowing to go with the dark background, especially underneath the legs.

First of all...they are gorgeous, each in its own way!!

Crit-wise...and this is just if it was me...I'd work just a tad more on the kitty's tail...needs some whisps? and a few more colors/ highlights...there seems to be all of his/her body colors in the tail...just some are in the shadows.

The birches are wonderful!! Maybe a bit darker in the background trees to make them recede bit more? Others could probably help more with that.

The lion, wow! H reminds me of Aslan from the Chronicles of Narnia...but I do think the ears are off...they seem too small to me. Otherwise...I love it!!

what an unexpected first picture! I thought that perhaps you had named your cat "birch trees" until I scrolled down a ways!! Nice job on all three

Hi Deb!!
These are fabulous!!
Cute little Kitty, definately shows she some attitude there.. guess who's the boss!:lol: Great work on the fur
Love these birch trees! realy great, I like how detailed they are and yet the background is less defined, realy makes them stand out!!
Wonderful Lion, Great lighting, he looks proud, like he's resting in the sun!
Very well done!

All three fantastic....lion...well just for my two cents, could maybe bring the lower part of his ear down of it a bit. Diagonal line to the corner of the eye just a bit more, top arch just a tad higher and a good part of the time the hair from the head kind of more scrumbly looking falls around/into the middle of the ear. It seems to grow into longer strands on top. The furry part of the ear just a little thicker and then darkening the hollow would give you good depth too.

I think he's beautiful, and I love your birch trees and the cat atop definitely says "you looking at me", I see that alot, have several cats with attitudes..lol

All wonderfully done.

Hi Fellow Deb :wave:
I like all of these! Good job on the lion's eyes, he has an almost human expression.
