I love the colors
The shading can be tricky - even I sometimes make my shading look kinda dodge/burnny at times without meaning to. For the fur, try drawing fur on the body in peaks and curls, like the fur you would see on a dog or cat.
It's a pity most fans will just say that they like the picture, or give comments like 'cool' or 'nice' when a more extensive comment would actually be more helpful. Also there are a lot of people on DeviantArt of varying talent who get pissed off when they are critiqued. I used to hate critiques until I saw how helpful they could be, and now I welcome them. I wish more people on this site would give and listen to critiques!
But anyway, from what you said, I think maybe that is why I would respond so badly to my parents trying to help me with other things in life. Weird, isn't it?
I also point out other stuff like lack of structure and there are some pics I had seen here that looked like sacks of goo. I sometimes use that term when doing critiques, because an artist that was critiquing my art and really helped me learn how to look at art used that comparison too. At times I'm a bit harsh with my critiques, but I'll try to not be so needlessly harsh in the future. Thanks for pointing that out - gotta make sure I don't turn mean.
In another life on DeviantArt I also got into a lot of miscommunications, and got quite a few text-wall flames in my journal which made things hella worse. Then I learned to love the critique and to not be so fan-girly.
I guess that in a way, my aspergers syndrome does affect the way I write, because I don't always know how my words will be perceived by others. I'm getting better at that though, since I'm going to counseling and I've spent quite a few years learning how to behave on the interwebs.
Anyhoo, do you do critiques? I'd love to get a few
Congrats on the DD~!
