Phantom is almost everywhere, it's not even funny anymore. xD But I love the way you draw the others <3 Especially the way you shade this hnnngggg~ I love those whiskers as well, it's always a nice thing to see on chars. ;u;
this came out super awesome Zan ;u; I love how they all look like they're cheering or singing happy birthday -at least that's how it looks to me-. The background is stylized enough to match the drawing but not so much that it takes away from the main focus of the characters c:. The shading is pleasant to the eye and I dunno why but I cannot stop staring at the table .
I like the style where you used the lineart to show the fur tufts. Somehow my lines don't look natural when I try that. The folds in the clothing are evident from the approach you used on their highlights and shadows. It's also interesting how you transition from the lit up characters and table back to the shadowed background.
