The whole perspective thing is a bit off, but it's a good try. I don't know how to fix it unfortunately, because I'm not really good at perspective myself The colouring is fantastic and the shadows are good. I think the grass could do with a little more detail, however
Other than that, this is a really well done picture
Wow, it's really good! I like the coloring and shading of Akumitsu himself, as well as the scenery around him. His eyes are really pretty, and I also think you did the perspective well...
But the only thing that bugs me a bit is that you put too much emphasis on the perspective... I think you should have made his hind legs and such a little bit bigger, and just make the wolf a little smaller in comparison to the pic. Does that make sense? That way, it would look more like he was below the tree some ways, instead of directly under the branch... (Well, I dunno if that was what you were aiming for or not, sure it's really up to you.)
But other than the few size issues, I think it's really pretty! And I noticed you did the soft shading for the leaves. They look great!
Thanks! Yeah, I agree, the hind legs probably should be a bit bigger. Thanks for pointing that out Personally I think the perspective is pretty crappy. XD And I definitely need to start studying some more anatomy, which'd probably help with doing perspective. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the tree/branch thing though...
Yeah, I think I actually like soft shading better than cell shading. Except I fail whenever I try to do soft shading on a wolf, because there's so much more detail involved. xD
