Really glad to have discovered you! Will scan all your gallery now...

This one is gorgeous. As Mr-Glaceon said below, your inking is masterful, no need of color at all.
(But it is so nice to see what color others have come up with!!)

About your struggle with coloring (to which I relate) I tend to believe that when lines are so defined, carefully sculpting the scene, color either become a disturbance, or it steal the show completely without the same delicacy.
People that are good with color use lines as part of the coloring, so the whole become the sculpting. But when someone loves/adores the lines by iteself, like... in typography or architecture... color is necessarily a problem, a hindrance?
(my 5 cents)

Thank you so much for taking the time to look through and comment!! 

I do agree to a point... When someone makes beautiful lineart I think it's a shame when the colours overwhelm that. They should definitely work together. :) I'm actually one of those people who tends to prefer the lineart on its own, but then colour is so important as well, especially for published work. It's a hard thing to balance? 

Thanks again! :)

You're welcome. ^o^ Coloring is a whole other beast in itself, yeah. XD Your ink work is very solid, and that's always worth coloring when you have a result you're happy with.

Incredible work on the pose of the girl and her hairstyle! :wow:
The anatomy of the feline looks very well done, I especially like the eyes! You really captured them perfectly!
The background looks great aswell, I like the composition! You're improving with each new artwork, love it!
