First of might i say i am very inpresed by your work! the fur is ver exact andfine. just a few things that realy stood out to me and bothered me were the placeing of the lighting. see light bounces and reflects off objects you made it so that light is highlighting certin areas of her face and ears but you didnt realy have it "reflect" for exaple: you have alot of highlights around here eyes so perhaps it will reflect down the center her nose a little makeing certin patters in her fur noticable. anotherthing was that around her nose and ears her fur seems to be randomly placed, this may be because i work with dogs more but for most animals that have fur from the nose it spreads upwards and then fans out along there brow, perhaps looking at some diagrams will help you capture this idea. but over all your work is very impressive and exact, and is trumenously pleasing to the eye because it shows a great amount of motion makein this peice come alive. you are doing very well in your art and should definately keep to it!

Incredible feeling in this work.  I love the use of tonalities to show the texture.  Thanks for being an inspiration.
