Acrylic cat (x-post Animals & Wildlife)

Hello, my first post in acrylic forum. I thought I'd share with you my new painting, inspired by beautiful photo from RIL. Size 46x33cm on canvas (I can't remember whose picture it was , but thank you!).

Superb work Dominika, such a personality!

Re: C&C... just a p.o.v - wonder if it'd be an idea to lighten the sides of the nose a smidge, so as to make the nose seem a little less steep? Also, depress the value of the pure whites in the chest area by a notch so as to make the head come forwards... I think.

Wow, what a likeness! It's hard to comment when you are far-sighted like me. I just keep wanting to back up from it a bit...excellent job though!
