Well, I finally chose to redo the other version of this. This time, with better shading, but it's still crap otherwise. I actually loved how this turned out. I gave the eyes a glow (because this is what Spottedleaf saw in her vision) and the flame in the background has better embers than before. The fire also glows this time around!
There's some shading below part of his tail and such, and a glow on the shown blades of grass, but he also has some shading on his chest fur. I also did a better sitting position than before( before, his shoulders were almost as big, or bigger, than his head!).
What do you think? XD
