First of, i just had to see this picture and thoght "wow, I'd love to write a critique to that." It not only looks supercute, it also has this handdrawn, realistic and high-quality touch I am missing in lot of digitally drawn cat pictures.

You did the colours really well. With making the background light blue, you created a very good contrast to the warm cat. The eyes are beatiful: With being the darkest thing in the picture and in the centre, they really attract your attention without looking too unrealistic huge. You can almost feel the fluffyness of Tiger. The only reason I haven't given 5/5 stars on technique is because when you look closely, you still see some smudges. That one snowflake on the left side of the tail is really bothering me.

Originality: Okay, it's a cute cat in the snow.
Impact and Vision: Awwwwwww a cat!<3

All in all, i really think you should continue working with oil on canvas: You are really good at it. Your painting is very good, but not extraordinary, and you can be proud of it:)

I like this piece. It's so sweet how the kitty's hanging on to the branch for dear life. Pastels add a nice impact, and it's a great tequnique! The eyes just have the perfect amount of focus and lighting. The whole thing is good, really. And you did a good job on the fur. The snow on fur was a nice touch. In fact, I could this being a real-life thing, with the ref a lot like this the tree bark looks good as well, and I can see that, despite the branch's size it can clearly hold the kitty.

Awwww, poor kitty.  :(  I actually like this "sketch" version better than the final version because the muted colors seem more realistic for a winter's day.  Anyway, the kitten's sad expression in this painting is just so heartbreaking.  It reminds me of my cousin's cat, who was left on the doorstep as a very tiny, very helpless kitten.  The kitty you've painted here is the same stripey orange as her cat.  So cute.  =^-^=

Having looked at both of your paintings, I find myself drawn most to this one. Perhaps it's the roughness or the imperfections, but I find the kitten in this version looks more weathered, perhaps he's been out longer than the other ;) But both are fabulous pieces of work :)
