This is WONDERFUL! I do agree that maybe a little more work could be done in the tongue/mouth area (deeper shading in the mouth and at the base of the tongue) however overall it's a very nicely done drawing!
Yeah I did rush the tongue a little and should have done more work on that area. What I'm finding more difficult is getting the difference in coat color showing the light and dark tones throughout the picture. Practice Practice though you are right & I must try not to rush, my biggest problem but happy to be drawing again. Thanks everyone.
