Hmm I like how it looks, with the dots being all there and all. Sorry I'm not sure how to word that better. As far as things that can improve when it comes to the fur around the neck and the feathers on the wing, it's a little hard to tell the difference between the two as far as the texture goes. Unless that was what you were going for, and those aren't supposed to be feathers a little more work with the highlights to define some feathers a bit more clearly would probably help. Also on the bottom of the neck where the furline ends it looks almost as if it part of the skin rather than on top of it. The last thing I can see of note is the feathers, or I think that's what they are on the end of the tail, the outer one's look too thick compared to the one's closer to the tail. Unless again, that's what you were going for.
Yeah, texture is one hint I still have to improve. I tried to make the feathers look soft a bit though. I would like to know how that came out. I do not get what you say though with it loping part of the skin or something like that?
