Here are the edited sprites + aurumoth for comparison:
I'll make my final submission tomorrow.
So final comments are welcome.
: wow! If this is your first time spriting, I think it's incredible! The colors look really nice, and the pose is adorable. But I actually like the unedited sprite more. It give a more frontal view. I would position the head a bit more upwards and reduce the size of the colar. Hopefully there will also come a sprite of argalis :)
