Very tricky... the lighting and chopping while unprecise was challenging to create the real effect... please comment.. i made a change of the left eye to liven the expression. Full View is much better... thanks

Need an armored car to feed that kitty..hehe Might want to dodge the mane on the right and burn in it on the left to match the direction of light/shadow on his nose, since shadows are in opposition.
This has got to be freakiest thing I have ever seen.... Great Job
Perfect blending but the eyes (especially the right eye - from visitor's view) look plastic. Should be made darker I think. But I understand that they probably came like that with the source picture. Still I'd try darkening them to make the creature look alive.
Very real looking. The only thing...inside the critters mouth shows strong sunlight from the right, but the light on the mane & body is more diffused, like an overcast day.
