    Awesome! I love the contrast of painterly strokes with the rendering in the face.

    The head proportion compared to the body is bothering me slightly, also the fur hood is too much on the large side.
    Aside from that it is well executed, would be best if those two things were addressed though.

    Smashing stuff! I really like the slight stylisation as well. The dogs are great, particularly the one at the back! I love 'His Dark Materials', and your take on Lyra is refreshingly different.

    Fantastic!

    If I were to crit, I'd say the face looks a little bit old...It makes her look like a short adult. Just a little more softness and you can bring back her youth a bit. But honestly, this is a great piece!! I love the dogs! Nice color...Great mood, sweet _and_ apprehensive.

    Tiffany GREAT JOB!
    Look at you, using thick impastos at the bottom of the painting...man...I am really impressed. I love the detail at the bottom of her coat...gorgeous touch.
    I gotta see this in person.

    I might have added more snow up in the sky...it's suggested (very tastefully I might add) towards the bottom, but snow generally falls from the sky (wise ass remark..sorry )

    If I were to be really really picky...I might have neutralized some sections of her coat, so it's not all so warm toned. This might help that great face pop out more, especially if you added some greys around the fur in hood. I'm being really nit-picky now..cause I love ya and I know you are just gonna become like..the best illustrator ever

    Beautiful

    hey! that's great! the only crit I have would be that the mountainy areas in the back could use a bit more atmospheric perspective, just softening the edges and making them slightly bluer and less saturated than the foreground. I think you did really well with the snow, that's a beast to paint!
