I made another layer over the base shading, and set it to a second shading layer (on top of my lines and color layers). I set this layer to Multiply, then select just the character with the select tool, then use the gradient tool (my favorite tool in PhotoShop, lol) to make a gradient of the shadows. :) Does that make sense?

For the base shading layer I just use a brush with soft edges and erase the bits I don't want with an eraser with soft edges. ;3

I know what you mean hehe, i tried gradient in some images but most of them look.. flat XD

I do erase that too as for basic shading :"D

The composition if great - those low clouds give a sense of height to the setting and the snow looks fabulous :D
Character expression and pose are awesome too :)

Well worth the wait; thanks again! :aww:

Really glad it could fit into his story! ^^ That's awesome, and he was *really* fun to draw. I love his wolfish tail with feline features. ^^

Thanks for Fura again - I just love the pic you did of her. :)

He was originally a wolf character, but Kanu described him now as an overgrown housecat with a wolfy-like tail. ;p He was a lot of fun to do. :) Thanks!

Thanks Gii. :) Trying to get better at action poses, they're much more difficult to do for me than standing ones, but I really like how this came out as well. I looked at a lot of different feline refs. ^^
