I truly just love your more realistic style. I really just love how soft and detailed your coloring is, and how you do such soft fur detail. The semi background is very lovely aswell, I love the detail of the tree bark, and the soft grass detail along with the budding tree. ^^
Well when I say 10... I mean after already having most other basics down... I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and it's really over the last two years that I've made the most improvement. Practise is fun!
I never took drawing seriously, really until late last year, so I'm hoping within the next year or so I'll show great improvement. Till then, I'm defiantly not pleased with my art, and have a long way to go.
