Your anthropomorfised animal arts are great.. but I would strongly recommend to change the anatomy of the paws - they doesn't work well when the characters hold sth... I beleive this these would be perfect: [link] because they are still not 100% human and still have a strong animal feeling (and they have paw pads as well) but are anatomically correct;P Maybe you should take it into consideration;)

First let me compliment you on your English. I admire your courage to make such difficult observations in a foreign language.
Now, I want to thank you for those observations. I checked the link you gave me and I think you have a sound point and I will
attempt to take your advice in my next painting.
Thank you.

This type of art has been around for awhile. But to me it is different anthro art. Than the other style I have been seeing. A pretty picture of a nicely dressed female Border Collie. With the look of devotion and dedication in her face. Beautiful decorated staff in her paw, Pretty dress. Background contains sheep, horses and a man putting hey onto a horse drawn hay wagon. With a man on top arranging the hay. Interesting art and beautiful to look at.

The effect is of an old time post card, or a "magic lantern" slide.

Cute. For some reason I'm not surprised to see a Red Border Collie in this scene, since they were well-bred for herding sheep. Nice dress, too.
