I had a few seconds.  so I made a quick edit. 



Basically, I was just making a quick point about the tail fins.  The actual tail is pretty good, but the style there doesn't fit in with the fins.  So I made a quick dither thing. 

Also, I don't agree with the hard highlight on the hairs top.  Too harsh for me.

Back from hiatus, just remembered how excellent this community is at forming technique in a fledgeling artist of any kind.

Sorry if my post is pointless, :) just want to say I watch that tread as a movie and I really like the first picture as much as most of the edits, which convince me the piece very well done from the beginning is very hard to ruin. :)

I have to say this is turning out to be my favorite pixelation spontaneous collaboration thread! Here's my two cents, building upon Adarias' great edit. :) I agree the tail needs a different shading, right now it's just clashing way too much with the rest.

GRAR! Edits mean nothing unless the original artist benefits from them!! Okay, there's the secondary boon of learning yourself and becoming better at finalizing art, but never should it be at the expense of the original poster.

Gah! Soryy guys, I didn't mean to seem so ... unappreciative. I'm working on it, and I'm aboyt half done! Just had to finish some other art with deadlines and stuff there around Halloween, and then a friend from Sweden came over in the weekend so I'm not done with my edit based on all the wonderful C&C I've gotten. Plus I'm going to write replies to you all, so don't think I don't appreciate it - I do! It's just taking me some time.

I'm really baffled by the amount of response I've gotten on this piece. :o Must've done something right.
