I really like this - but I think the lining on the orange parts of the fur with highlights is a bit too bright in some spots.. like on the legs. It looks good on the hair parts, but on the toes, and the tip of the tail, I think those lines would be shadier and not as lit up... does that make sense? other than that I really like it. Also, there could be more shade under the cat, instead of him floating on the sand. (word space word space word space word space word space word space word space) :P
What do you think?

Hello ;v; I see you would like some critique on your work and I figured I would help you out a bit.
The first thing I'm going to address are the limbs in comparison to the body. The body of your cat is a wee bit short compared to its long arms and legs.
For your next picture I suggest either shortening the limbs, or make the body a tad bit longer. Don't be afraid to use a reference, just searching up a picture of a cat to see its anatomy might help you.
I'm going to talk a little bit about the shading in the background, because it looks like the cat is sort of floating on the sand its meant to stand firmly on. I suggest that, before you do ANY SHADING, first find the source of light. It could be coming from behind, or from the side. Either way, where ever the light source (the sun) is coming from it will have a different impact on your picture. So that is something to think about. Try to add something in the sky as well. Maybe clouds? Mountains in the distance? Even some sand dunes. It will give your picture a nice and solid environment.
So after all this, just try to work on the shading and the where about of the light source, as well as the anatomy a little bit. I hope this helps you a wee bit. ♥
Cheers ♥

one thing that hasn't been said is his belly shading is coming over where his leg should be, so it kinda looks like his leg is behind his belly... here's an example (i picked a hairless one so it's clearer what i mean! ehehe!) [link]

i really like the picture though, the colour of the sky especially, it looks quite strange and helps the confusion the cat is feeling!
