Hey, friend! I'm here from ProjectComment Sorry for my english in advance, as it sometimes fails me

:) - What a lion full of personality! I like the tiny details that make him, him - the optional freckles/lashes, the curly fur. It's well thought off, makes him unique and they're elements that blend well along the character, instead of clashing and coming of as "too much detail". 
I like his pallete too, as it's nice to look at and realistic. The curls you make are cute as can be - like clouds :lmao: - and the version without outlines looks clean and solid. 

:( - ah, this will be more about composition than drawing. All I have to say is that at the bottom one, interacting with Mimi, he looks too thing because the mane doesn't behave like a mane - because it disappears behind the ears, it's a "beard" > of course it's not, but anywho, it makes his head little and not very lionish. 
Other than that, only the way you composed the elements in the ref sheet. It could be a bit more organized, and be careful so your signature doesn't clash with the elements in visual weight. It should be there to protect your property, not to stand out agains your art. 

That's all! Great job, friend, keep it up! :w00t:

Thanks so much! I do have trouble drawing the mane from the front, I can never figure out how to get it to look good haha. I appreciate your comment so much though! I rarely get actual criticism!

You're welcome! I just showed to my girlfriend telling her Jamin is so well done and fluffly just looking at him made me happy. It deserved a comment! :love: 

I'm not a great animal drawing myself hahahaha but I'm good at observing, so I think I can help somehow

Look at my friend Haldir here: 
Haldir, the white lion by woxys
Notice how the mane goes around his head giving the notion of depth. There's a forward layer, the one that makes the "beard"/chest fur, and a layer behind, like "hair falling" (is so weird to equal it to human hair) but it's more or less like it. 

It's even easier to see it in our main man Simba:

Notice how his head and ears are surrounded by his mane. You can see the layers cleary - chest > friend > back 
Basically, there's hair behind the ears and in front of it :P 

I hope it helped!! :dummy:

Awwe thanks so much Neko Emoji-42 (Kawaii Moe Smile) [V3]Anime Emoji (Blushy) 

Yes, references! I really don't utilize references as much as I know I should haha..

Thank you! I'll keep that in mind next time I draw him(Which is pretty often... in all my school notebooks... because he's based off of the person I have a crush on irl... hehehe...)

Yeye! I probably should never let the real person see Jamin because he actually looks way too similar and the crush is pretty obvious imo already so he would probably suspect it's himmm. Buuuut hey random thing the crush gave me his number (w/o my asking him to he just randomly sent himself a text message on my phone aaaaa) when I was showing him a picture of my dog so thAT'S PRETTY COOL and also what a coincidence I just got a text back from him heeeeeee

If you can't tell I am in deep rn. Giant uncontrollable crush. I tell way too many people, he will eventually find out if he doesn't suspect it already lmaoooo
