I like the way you made this your own, Danielle.

Nice eyes and ears.  Great coloring.  Nice grasses in front.  The background... hmmm ... maybe some darker greens in that first row of bushes.  Distant trees look good.

The head, even though a baby, looks too small for the body.  In humankind, a baby's head is larger in proportion to the body than with an adult.  Not sure if it's the same in the animal world, though.

It's beautiful Danielle :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I just can't see which direction the sun is coming from :-\
You can show that by lightening / darkening the one side of the face and adding shadows cast by the distant trees

 :thankyou: Dirk for the lovely comment.
 :thankyou: Val  for the lovely comment.
 :thankyou: Lisa also for the  lovely comment.
 :thankyou: Mea for the advice, as for the head I do not know if they are bigger at birth, but i did it the same as the photo. That was from a winter picture my husband took and the baby must have been quite a few months old.  Also the but is closer to the viewer that may be why you think the head is small, it is perspective.
 :thankyou: Nolan for the advice I will do that and repost.

Danielle,

Great job.  It's got more P-O-P to it now.  The distant trees look much better.


Thanks for posting the photo - I can see that the head is the size as the photo.
