Reminds me of whinny the poo style art like Piglet. Its really cute none the less. The perspective on the ears seems a little off, but that might be because its stylized? The shading and everything on the rest of it is nice though and the background shows you're definitely starting to get a better hang of the draw distance (I think thats what its called?) Also the cloud placement looks like steam is coming out of his ears.

Thanks! :D The ears are supposed to curl inward and aren't directly facing the camera but it's a difficult shape to imply with such a simplistic style, especially since I don't have that much experience with it.

I like it.

Two things I noticed, though: First, I'm not a fan of the shirt color being so close to the color of his chest symbol. It meshes in just enough that it's noticeable to my eyes. The color of the shirt being a bit lighter in that area can fix it quite easily. Either that or the shadow on the chest being just a tad darker.
Second, the shadow on the ground doesn't seem to be completely working underneath him. On his left foot, it's almost like his body is lifting up slightly above the ground. That may be due to the texture of the ground playing tricks on the eye, though. Something to watch out for there.

Also, not a HUGE complaint here, but the clouds behind his head kind of mesh with his cheek highlight. Not a huge glaring issue there, but I think that would be something to keep a watch out for later, especially if you ever get into the high-profile business of selling prints.

Other than that, I do like the style. It's cute.
