This is what I have right now
To see the steps I took to get to this point read on.
I wasn't happy with the background color on my last step yesterday so today I started by glazing other colors over the background to cool it down and send it farther back. Next I decided on orange/yellow eyes and I also painted the detail of the shape of the eyes as well.
Here I continued to glaze the background and even out the ears some. Also glazed some orange on the face.
Then I glazed more blue into the shadow areas as well as some yellow in the highlights.
In step 14 and 15 I continued glazing blue and green into the background as well as adding color intensity into the Coyote. I also worked a little on the ears.
In step 16 I used a small brush and added some orange around the ears and took out the shoulder on the left side to match the right side. In the final step today I did some work on the mouth and ears as well as the eyes. I won't do anything for a couple days now but take notes on what I do and don't like as well as ask other people what they think. It also helps sometimes to look at a painting upside down to spot composition problems so I will probably do that as well.
