I honestly like both of them! I think the first one is more eye-catching because the character is such a larger area of contrast, whereas the second one builds a connection between the character and the fox spirit. Either way, it's already so compelling!
I like the bottom one becuz just like what Kaylin said: the light builds a connection with the character and the fox/wolf spirit :)And OMG, a finished drawing from you!!!! :O AMAZING!!!
