May I present you: Inuq, the soon to-be Alpha! Yet he just puts his brother Aslan or the omega Khan and bows in front of the real alpha Scott. But I guess that this picture is a kind of vision of the future. As the king of the forest with a little cute sceptre in his paws =D

What an impressive shot! I really love these soul piercing eyes, It's looking calm but strong and powerful.
It doesn't seems to be easily intimidated. Now, I know why you called it "king of the Forest", that's because his whiteness is royally contrasting with the dark brownness of this autumnal forest, it's behaving right and with dignity, and it's looking at us with these eyes which says : " you're not frightening me, I can eat you all at once!".
But there is only one detail that's breaking down this royal atmosphere : that's this chicken between it's paw's (not very glam'!)
However, I love this picture and you've totally amazed me!
Excellent work! as usual...

What a lovely, striking animal. I really like the calm, powerful stare he's giving you, and may I say that getting such a direct look from any animal (especially wild or semi-wild) is so dang challenging!

The colors also add to the image, inspiring thoughts of freedom and wilderness and racing through the forest. This fellow could be the main topic in lots of images, but I could see him resting at the feet of a queen, a god, or being utterly tumbled over by forest faeries! Very good job on this as a complete piece, and the only word of advice I could think to give is that when you upload to the stock category, it is helpful to all of us manipulators that the image be in original colors. With it already in sepia-tone, it can be difficult to recapture subtle nuances of color in shade and highlights. But as a finished piece, this would get an A+ from me!

Thank you very much for your kind critique and for delivering insight into the creative head of a manipulator or drawer =) As a stock photographer it's sometimes really hard to appraise the needs of those who use our photos. So much the better to get critique from you!

In fact, I haven't changed the colours - just contrast, brightness and light intensity. But I've realised that with these adjustments the red colours came out very strong. So I've already turned them back but maybe not enough. Will remember it for the next time! =)

So thank you again :heart:

What a proud beast!  Great photograph, you really captured a sense of magnificence, especially in those eyes.  I hope to paint this sometime in the next month or so if I can find the time, and if I do I'll make sure to link you to the picture.
