I like the colors in this piece, but the text is hard to read... makes it hard on the eyes. I suggest filling in the parts that are dark in the text.

Its obviously not meant to be a realistic portration of a fox. the smoothness was a stylistic choice on my part.

My attempt at making the text more intelligible. Too bad that the border color completely stands out and kind of ruins a lot of it :\

Something that bugs me about this is how the text goes from thick vertical bits to pixel-perfect to a bit over 1px diagonal style. I antialiased the bits I thought needed it to show you what I'd do to improve that.
