I just got done looking at your "Rookie" version of this character. I like the character design. Only thing I have to mention about this picture. Did he lose his tail in combat or something? In his rookie pic he has a nice fluffy tail, but in this one he doesn't have it. I like to point out insignificant details in works I like. I am very big into details.
Just a few critiques for you. None are bad, just things you could improve over time.
One: Your lighting. It's good, well balanced, not too dark in the shadows, not too washed out in the highlights, but it's not uniform. Some parts are brighter than others, and there's not one light source.
One helpful technique is this: If you're using a program with layers, create a semi-transparent layer and make a circle where your light source will be. Then take lines out from that point (either solid or dashed, whatever you want) in a radius out from the center, and there's your light source. For multiples it works too, but it helps to have two colors to avoid confusion.
Two: the anatomy. I know it's anthro, and you get some leeway in anatomy, but relatively the legs are slightly too large, and the head too small. The head's angle is also a little too flat. The nose is just a bit too small, making it look static, rather than the rest, which is spectacularly dynamic.
Hope I've been of some help! Again, this is beautiful. Good work! Keep it up.
I can see the great care and hard work that went into this, just by seeing the high quality of this piece. The details are phenomenal with not a single thing excluded. This is a guy you don't want to meet in anyplace shady. Great job!
Wow this picture is amazing! I love drawing animal people myself so this picture really speaks aloud to me. I was wondering how you did the detail in the colouring - could you please tell me? I'd much appreciate it thanks!
His right arm seems a little long and a little odd... likewise, his proportions are slightly strange, but being that he's an anthro character, it's difficult to really pick out exactly what seems off... But who cares? It's awesome and I love it. Love the suit, the eyes, the pose... everything. Instant fav <3
One of the best digitgrade shoe desigs I've seen yet... maybe the only. The design is really solid. My only nqualm is that the bottem half of the outfit works better, aesthetically than the top portion.

That's a badass stealth suit that you have there, I like the detail on it, especially with the knives. The posing is cool, and the pic kind of has a Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe feel to it, maybe Metal Gear as well. Definitely nice work.
