the second background works pretty nicely...for the future, i would definitely recommend against black as a ground to work off of...it makes it a little richer if there's a discernible hue (like dark purple, or dark orange, or something). g'luck with the chow, dude, looks like it's coming along nicely. the way the perspective is, her far breast should be lower than the closer one...would moving the closer one up and out a little help? what think ye? take care!!!
