Nice art.
Probably just me being waaay too tired, but the angle of the muzzle looks "off"...
Of course, the art would become better with more shading, to make it more 3D, and you could look into making the metal parts (spikes, metal part of the collar, etcetera) reflect light
Any particular reason you're wearing a belt around your neck, btw? :P

Edit: And if you get really bored, try adding backgrounds, the rest of the body, and some action-filled poses.
But that's for those who have time to kill to qualify for a massacre.

Its  a leather collar and I didn't wanna go too crazy on the shading. Just trying out more subtle shades by layering colors.

Wow....yeah, you're DEFINITELY still alive if you can draw something that well. I particularly like the detail you put into the hair. :)

YOU DARE ANGER THE GODS OF SHADING?
Well, then, I present you what you the result you could have gotten, if you asked someone with no artistic skill to shade for you:
Compared to the original:
See how it shines?!
See how it is in all ways superior to the non-shaded version?
See how I'm obviously being sarcastic?
I hope you do ;P

Meh, I'm weird, I'll edit whatever I want >:3
But, I already gave ya my critique (more shading, more background, the muzzle looks "off", and more "body")

Lols I don't get what was changed to improve shading
In any case, I cant shade with prismacolor markers for shit, but there are notable amounts of layering on the pic to show it.

I slightly notice the change. In Aerion's edit, it appears as though he took a white Prismacolour pencil over it to smooth out the blending of different shades in the hair and arms. At least, that's the only places I see it. It makes his hair look like it's illuminated. Shiny.

If you're up for a longer critique Cherry, I can offer my thoughts.

Kinda correct.
Except, I do everything electronically (and I did do his collar and sides, but they're hard to see, for some reason)
It looked like a bigger change "on the drawing board", honest.
Otherwise, I'd have used the burn tool on a higher setting.
But then again, if I was good at this, I'd be an artist :P

I remember when I first figured out how the dodge and burn tool worked. I went crazy with it :F but this isn't my thread. lol

1. DAMN YOU'RE HAWT Love the first picture. I can't draw for my life and your beauty dug a hole for me to crawl in.  OTL

2. I THOUGHT HE HAD UNDERWEAR ON HIS HEAD WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN AMAZING. However it looks off to a great start and can't wait till it's finished.
