Here are some tweaks from the feedback we received from the first thread regarding the Faelora sketches. As always, please be constructive with your criticism, thank you!

personally i think the plants a round the males neck area look a little strange in comparison to the females as it is a lot less detailed, personally id maybe suggest adding a couple more leaves to it

I think make the petals around the males neck look dantyer and thinner as well as add a few more. Maybe make them look more curvy like the female. But other than that they are beautiful. I live the males fluffy neck

Ooo that was quick lol. The female's proportions and the baby male look pretty much set to me, I have no more complaints there :)

As for the adult male,,,
Well, I know many people in the old thread said the neck balloon could be replaced by fluff, but some have proposed neck leaves instead! And I am very much in that camp, so I will keep advocating for that :p

Here, have the gif again for your consideration, this time ft. proposed sketch 2:


I still feel that his overall proportions feel a little strange - his body seems a little long with how far forward his chest appears to protrude, and his neck-into-chest area still feels disconnected and uncomfortable.
Also, the antler angle problem is still there

I like the fluff around the male's neck/chest a lot more than when it was smooth, though I think it could be somewhat smaller still. :|c Proportionally, it makes him look a bit front-heavy. I preferred the previous line of his back as well, as it now looks somewhat stiff and lacks definition where his back legs connect to the body. I think making the back end a bit larger might work well. I also think he could use some more petals around his neck.~

Ooh, I definitely second dinnerbone's suggestion of more leaves instead of neckfluff - that does look really nice.

Yes! So much better already!

A few little things are still a bit odd though.
It may look better to either smooth out the female leaves or make the male leaves more ruffled like the females.
The front adult male leg lacks the pointy upper joint on the leg that the baby male and adult female have and it makes it look too smooth compared to the others. I'm not sure I like the pointed upper joint on the female but it may look a lot better that way with color

I still love how much more amazing they look though! Compliments to the artist!

Edit: After seeing the neck leaves gif I would like to suggest having the puffy fur as a mutation with a bit of puffy fur on the legs to compliment, and having the neck leaves be the standard no mutation look. I love the wreathing of leaves on the male, but the puffy chest is almost kingly in a way, so I'd hate to lose either look.

Male mane

I feel you can get the thick mane effect using leaves with a heavy flopping leaf.

I think the vine additions on all of them are wonderful and hope the coloration stand out like a counter color to the body. Biologically contrary but a neat look.
