Der Meister's art

My profile pic. I feel something is slightly off with it, but I can't put my finger on it. I am no expert at art, so some criticism would be very much appreciated.
This drawing also took longer than I expected. How long would it take you guys do do something like this?

it looks pretty good so far the fur/body looks really nice, tho the one issue i do notice is that the legs seem rather short.

one thing i learned from a drawing book that helps out well is to draw 1 vertical line, copy and paste it 5 times (stack them ontop of each other) the bottom 2/2.5 is how tall the legs are, middle 1.5/2 is the torso, and the top one is the head/neck (since due to species it might be a little difficult for the head/neck)

so in that picture try to double the high of the legs (it looks alot like the legs start at the knees)

The legs were intentionally short because weasels have short legs, but the legs do seem to start at the knees. Perhaps I should proportion them more like a human to address this problem.

The main problem I see is your character would likely fall backward standing as it is. Its sways good to keep
the center of gravity in mind when your creating a character. Otherwise it's pretty good.

Keep up the good work. :orbunny:
