    As you are looking at it from the front, you need to adjust the right side eye shape. The pupil should be up near the top of the lid like the left side.

    What Daniel Callahan says and it looks like the feet need to be adjusted, but the pic is too small to give detail.

    It looks like the cat's right eye is higher than the left, but it might be the picture because it also looks like there is a weird bump above that eye and on the top of the head making it look like the right side of the head is higher than the left.

    First off, the weird bumps over the eyes, they are supposed to be there. Not only are they there on lions, but also bobcats, raccoons, coyotes, and even your dog scruffy. The eyes look pretty good, just keep in mind you can almost never get the pupil too high. The ears bother me a little, but other than that pretty good for a first. It's tough to see much more due to the small pics. Here's a ref. pic showing those "weird bumps".

    Are you looking at the ref. pic, or at scruffy? I guess if you don't see any, they must not be there.

    You don't see the bump over the eye? In the above pic it looks like someone hit the cat in the head with a hammer, and it left a goose egg over his eye.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Ryan, Ryan, Ryan. Don't know about you. If you can't "see" them, then you don't understand what you need to be looking for. Do yourself a favor and get Phideau and hold his muzzle but wave a bone in front of him back and forth. I'll bet you'll see the "bumps" then. THEY MOVE. LOL

    BTW, thanx Cole. I was looking at his picture and I was thinking it wasn't too bad for his first and then I saw all those guys saying stuff that I didn't feel was an issue. You know them better than I.
