Can I just tell you how much I admire the attention to detail re: the fur direction?? Your lighting is superb, but something so many artists seem to miss or aren't as skilled in (AKA me!) is understanding how fur lays and how fur on different areas has differing textures/thickness/length. You absolutely nailed how the fur on the ear sits, it LOOKS touchably soft much like real ear fur is, and blends cohesively with the facial structure & remaining mane. Absolutely breathtaking.
