I think you had a real vision what you wanted to do, and I think that you have made seeable in this picture.
I love the fact that this is original and how you have had your thought in this one. The lineart is awesome and that with you technique on coloring and posing is just great.
the muster on it's skin is greatly made and the places where it's are just right. The claws are nice and I like how they bring something dangerous with the ears to this picture. I also like the bit shining places in it's body.
This picture really makes a great impact with all those little details which cannot be seen on the first glance.
