You really nailed the suit. It almost looks too realistic :typerhappy:

Haha. Well thank you very much! :D

That is so dang cool :XD:

So, I gotta say, the two things that really stand out to me here are the paws and the suit. I'm gonna go easy on the suit because I see others have already commented on it (and deservedly so!) BUT I WILL SAY THAT THE FABRIC OF THAT TIE. DAAAAANG, SON. THAT IS A SLICK TIE IT'S HIGHLIGHTED FLAWLESSLY LIKE SATIN (...could be silk, but I only know satin, oops? :|) WITH ONE PERFECT CREASE AT THE KNOT AND ALL THE LIGHT SHIFTS FROM THE WAY IT HAS TO FOLD TO CONFORM TO SITTING HOWDAREYOUBESOPERFECT.

NOW PAWS. Paws are rough--every bit as much as hands on people can be. In addition to the whole "digits" problem, they've also got a really funky fur pattern that's easy to get sloppy on--but you didn't, and it really shows.

Wow! Thank you! I had never done an anthro that combined very refined human traits with animal ones like this before. So it's been great getting feedback (especially positive feedback ;p) on this. I'm glad you like it! I thought a really shiny/smooth texture for the tie would balance the slightly rougher texture of the pinstriped suit.

The design for the hand-paws was something I struggled with and talked to Nicolae about since neither of us were exactly sure how they should look. More human with fur or just paws like a wolf? We went with a nice in-between of longer "finger" digits but keeping the structure of a paw instead of a hand. Thank you for noticing and commenting on them. :D

:D The textures balanced really well--it looks really sharp.

It came out really well, I think! You can definitely tell there's a humanization (the digits were definitely longer), but they're definitely still paws!

Glad my insightful commentary could help! ;p

I am absolutely floored by the detail you put into this.  The longer I look at it, the more I see all the little details, like the folds and creases in the suit and the shine on the leather chair.

Thanks very much! I've done an anthro piece like before so it's great to get positive feedback. :)
