Hi. I love what you have achieved, but would you consider masking out the nose and eyes? And the top bit of fur - feathered? I think then it would look an amazing piece of art.
I wouldn’t suggest a full black mask - something subtle but to bring out the detail which needs to brought to the forefront.
But the eyes - they have to be masked completely, IMHO so they stand out as the focus.
Hi, thank you for your comments. I will have a bit of a rework. I totally agree with the comment about the top bit of fur.
The eyes are 100% masked (what you see are the original eyes) I did that deliberately to make them sharp, the photographer in me says that the eyes must be in focus, I’ll rework the original to see if I can improve on it. Thanks again
