Pretty good for a ten-year old. Congrats!

Things you need to improve:

- Coloring. It is considered a rule of thumb not to color in different or varying directions, like your A Lion art. The direction of the color goes circular around the paw print.
- Details. Don't lap up the fine details such us the whiskers. And the color of the whiskers look weird. But maybe that's just me. :/

haha, I was rubbish with paints at ten and I'm still rubbish at twenty.
You have the shading pretty good- I would concentrate on anatomy (the shapes of the animals)- I think this basically comes with looking at references (but not always copying them) and loads of practice. good luck!

I'd say anatomy as well. Keep the size of the head consistant with the size of the body.

But you're really good for 10. Ten...lets see, I was in... 4th grade? Yeah, you're much better than I was. Especially seeing as you're using paints.

They're really good, but I don't really believe in ages... it's just a number...

But if you study pictures of real lions, then you can improve

those are lovely
the coloring is lovely. the only thing maybe you could look at photos of real liones to get the bodies structure right, and maybe right the names on the back of the paintings so they dont up space on the painting? just a little thought ^.^ but overall I think they are goregous ^^

Those are very good! I couldn't even draw stick figures when I was 10. XD

The only thing I see is the first one, maybe the wiskers should have been darker rather then white? But it's all up to the artist to decide that.

I think your pictures are lovely!

Good philosophy! People always ask how old I am and I honestly don't know. I've stopped counting and I definately don't use that information every day. XD I'm so weird.

Those are some awesome pictures! 10 years old....that means about 4th grade for me. I think my biggest feat back then was a paper mache pony with 3 legs. It broke before I even got home too. I was mad. XD So yeah. I love the coloring, nice and bright!

I'll not critique this because:

a. I think you've got enough critique as is, you need a little uplifting comment
b. I never give critique unless it's something -really- obvious or looks to be an unnoticed goof.
