I made this one 1920x1080 so you can use it as a wallpaper if you're still on a 1080p monitor :)

I’m not a furry at all, I just love anthropomorphic animals like that

You've done a great job with this one! The shading is done great, the fur is super-realistic, the ears are placed well, the nose looks great, and I like the lip recolor. It is really hard for me to find something bad.

Including eyebrows is always a gamble for anthro manips. Since animals do not have eyebrows, it usually looks weird to include them, so a focus on shading in that area to bring out the brow line is essential. However, I do like your choice to include eyebrows in this one, although they seem a bit too solid. The sides should fade a bit like eyebrows. They stand out a bit much. Other than that, I think you pulled them off.

I love that you chose to do a red panda. I have not seen one done yet and this has really set the bar.

Excellent work overall, though I'd recommend expanding the muzzle to resemble that of an ailuriform species, and perhaps adding a visible medial cleft. The ears appear to be disproportionately small in relation to the head, and they also seem to be situated much too high on the cranium to be able to carry sound to the external acoustic meatus, which would make hearing difficult, if not impossible. Not to say that your work lacks quality or originality; I probably wouldn't be able to make something this detailed on a raster image editor of any kind even if I tried. From an artistic standpoint, this is one of your finest submissions yet. From an anatomical standpoint I'd say that you still have some way to go.

Thanks for the critique. It's always much appreciated.

A medial cleft would have been good, but lately I've been experimenting with the blend of human anatomy and animal anatomy. This one, as you have picked up on, leans further towards the human end of the scale than my previous works. I usually do a bit of work to the upper lip region, but for this one, you'll notice that aside from the colour, the shape of the lips are entirely human.

Interestingly, the size and position of the ears were the result of placing an exact overlay of the head of a red panda resized and positioned such that the eyes of the red panda image lined up directly with the eyes of the model. After that, I used a layer mask to remove what I didn't need and what you see is the result :)

wow, this is really awesome, it reminds me of a Fuchsbau from Grimm (grimm.wikia.com/wiki/Fuchsbau)

I was literally just looking for a comment about Grimm, thank you

OdysseusUT's avatar
Yeah, she's meant to be a Red Panda, though she kinda looks like a fox haha. I guess that's why red pandas have been nicknamed 'firefoxes'
DerpyPanda123's avatar
hehe, i didn't know that :O You learn something new everyday :P 
but that is quite amazing how you made her look like that Naruto Uzumaki (Thumbs Up)
