Aww, thank you so much for this *clings*
I didn't expect that you'd finish it that soon, buut yeah, it definitely has come a long way, and it looks great! ^-^ The cornfields look like they must have been a lot of work - they are drawn reeeally realistically though, so it definitely paid off ^^ Same goes for lightening and the texture on the fence - they are awesome, and way better than anything I'd have come up with
The waterdrops are a bit scribbly in my opinion - especially the water behind them; it looks a little slimy instead of water-y
The drops themselves look very well done though, the reflections are bright and realistic, and their transparency adds a lot too ^-^ The sky and the sun look fine; I like how soft and puffy the clouds are; their colours are calm and fit the scenery very well.
Mina is adorable; I like the metallic look and the colours of the little locket on her. Personally I think the outlines on her mouth are a bit too thick, as I think it makes it stand out a bit too much; compare it to Jackie, the plants, the fence; they all do without outlines ^^ Another thing you could try is putting her eyes a bit higher, or making them higher - especially with her fur markings, they look just a wee bit too small compared to her head - but maybe that's just me
Apart from that she looks great, the fur is realistic and same goes for your choice of colours.
I adore the way you drew Jackie - he looks wonderful in your style. The ears, the wings, the shading on him, especially around his feet and the tail - you've definitely outdone yourself on him
The colouring is really smooth, and the shading on him looks just perfect - the way you've drawn and shaded him is a big highlight of the picture (just as much as the fence, the cornfield and everything else - they're great just as well *-*), and definitely looks way better than anything I've ever drawn of him ^^
The grass looks nice too, and really, don't worry about confusing people
I don't mind your style being really similar to mine (in fact, I like the style, otherwise I'd not draw in it ;3) - and that's in addition to the fact that yours has its own little twist to it - characters you draw look a loooot cuter than if I had drawn them - that starts with that drawing you printed on the mug, and continues on here.
Besides, look at how little I post
Someone of us has to keep posting!!
