A fanart for the mascot of 2010 South Africa World Cup, Zakumi. [link] I just love this green hair cheetah boy, especially in his official web comic. [link]

I tried to draw him really look like a boy, because I always draw girlish boys which confuses people, and I think I should make a little change.

When this first popped up in my inbox, I couldn't help myself; I just had to click it right away, even though I always go through my messages systematically. The colors really applied to me, and when I got it up in full view I was even more surprised, I don't normally like anthro, but something about your style really talks to me, and I could stare at your pieces forever, if I would allow myself.
The simple background really makes the character stand out, and the pose and perspective is incredible! The fact that I like soccer doesn't make me like this picture less :b I also think you made his fur very nicely, with some great details, and his expression is great too.
There isn't really anything negative to say, because this picture is all in all amazing. There's only one thing, and that is even though he's a boy, and you wanted to make him look like one, I assumed he was a girl, till I read the description. But maybe that is just me, I haven't been watching you for very long, and I don't know your style that well, I guess some of your more "active" watchers could tell right away.
Well this was a real novel, I hope it’s an okay critique, I have never written one before, so please don’t kill me. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. :)
