I spazzed when i saw this in my inbox. My goodness urnam, this is gorgeous. First off, I really love the colors! The bright purple/pink outline and design make the dog (greyhound correct?) stand out perfectly! And I have to say, I see a lot of improvement coming through. The pose and the drawing are very creative! Even if you didn't add a background, this piece stands out a lot~
This is very beautiful! I love the colors, and I personally think it would look better with a background. I also LOVE the paws(since I can't draw paws even if my life depended on it) However, may I critique? The anatomy is very well done, but this is a greyhound, right? Greyhounds and other sighthounds have very slender legs, and the legs on your picture are kind of thick, especially the front legs. The head is small for the overall body size, and the neck, in my opinion, should be more slender towards the head. If you want, I could post a draw over for this, since I am absolute rubbish at explaining things. But overall, this is a very pretty picture, and I love it! This is from my knowledge and study of anatomy, but since you have 2 greyhounds, I'm assuming that you know what they look like pretty well. XD I'm sorry if this critique seems a little harsh, but these are just the things I noticed.
