Woo woo updates!
First off, watch out on those wrist areas, some of your hands seem a bit off there.
As for the CHOW, your original sketch actually looks better than the final, because it's not so busy. There's nothing wrong with lots of detail, but many of the things on him are quite large and confusing. Also in the final, there is very little value variation in the character himself. Although you do automatically win my respect for even attempting to make sense out of the mess (to me) that is watercolors.
Aside from that, the improvement is very evident lately. Keep it up man!
