Here is an update .I have textured the white fur some and i like it.Don;'t know quite how to texture the black or the other color too much except for the bits of black hairs the dog has on her.I am using yellow ochre and burnt sienna and some white for the lighter colors.Thankyou all for your comments and help!Fiddled more with the face too,don't know if i made it worse or what.

Love that expression. Sweet little dog. I do feel that you need to darken some of the shadows beneath the paws. Cassie seems to be floating a little. Otherwise very well done.

awww what a cutey . I had beagles when I was a kid. They are so lovable. A great job on her by the way.

Oh Jan, she is soooo cute!!
Lovely work on her, great expression!!
Darkening her underneath on the ground wouldn't hurt at all,
It might help ground her a bit, close to her body and blended out dark to light.. no defined lines of shadow

Thankyou all so much! I will darken the shadows some more! Hugz,Jan

She is so cute!

I love the texture you put into the white fur. To define the black, couldn't you mix a bluish grey to make her coat seem a bit shiny? Especially throughout the black, I always feel like that part of coat reflects so beautifully.
