Last minute feedback for March contest?
This idea for the contest seemed so great at first, but now that I need to add the color (there isn't time for an ink painting with color, gah) it doesn't seem like it works.
The wolf is meant to look like a traditional wolf, but as you see her details, she has the qualities outlined in the contest prompt: naive and stouthearted. The Fae are the best classification I could find for small magical creatures that need to catch a ride because they do not have wings. Any impressions or suggestions would be so much appreciated and will be fully considered, even if i can't make the changes in time for the contest (the contest is not so important to me).

I really like the style. I think the middle picture where the wolf is sitting, fits the prompt, so I think captured the right feeling. I like the scale of the fae vs the wolf.
@Kim-Rosenlof Thank you so much!

I like the character. I say forget the ink, use these pencils as is and put a flat color on top. Or you can keep the wolf white and do a flat color behind

This is completely unique and looks fantastic! I can't wait to see what you do with the color, I don't think it needs much and agree with @Matthew-Oberdier, you can probably get away with just adding to the pencil sketch. Awesome work and good luck!

I love the way you drew the form of the Wolf with just applying simple strokes. I agree that just a light colour underneath should do fine.
I think it's great. No need for inks.
My only real critique would be the tail on the lower right, flows into the leg. In the thumbnail it looked like there was no tail/butt. Maybe lift the tail a bit to show they are separate? Really nice style.
@CLCanadyArts You could do that digitally, just with a lasso even. Not that you have to take my advice, it's just a thought.
@Matthew-Oberdier I'm going to do a flat color behind it later, thank you!
@Tiffany-Thomas thank you! turned out that to do the color i needed to make the fae actual characters
@Julia-Hegetusch thank you!
@CLCanadyArts thank you!! I fully agree with you about the tail flowing into the leg, but this version didn't turn out well either. was trying too hard to avoid it
I'm going to keep working on this after I finish the stuff I'm supposed to be working on. so helpful, everyone.
I'm too late to help, but I like how you've drawn this character!

I’m not sure what the prompt is , but I love the scale difference! Very appealing and engaging characters
