This is a nice piece of work that certainly shows the grwoth of your skills and how you have developed your talents further through this painted style with your characters. The piece overall has a lot of charm and it is clear that you have grown artisically in aspects such a with the hair, anatomy and facial features. The dabbed brush approach works expectably well and really gives your work that potent feel than just an illustration and how you have given a more life like feel to your anthro characters. Some aspects such as the hair have evolved wonderfully and feel much more flowing than just something slapped on the top of their skull. the various builds of the tones and strokes of the brush work very well, making it feel natural. Other aspects such as the skin tones and facial gesture are also approached well in the same manner, in a way, it gives your work that impact needed to make it stand out proudly than just being graceful as though with the airbrushed should you have used it.
Ah thank you so much : D I've really been playing around with painting a lot as of late. I really like this style of painting and I think I'm going to keep with it and keep improving on it xD Seems to work better than most of my styles in the past haha.
