I like it a lot!

The shadow looks a little funny though. I mean, the shadow for the head and body look ok but the leg shadows don't seem right. Because of that, the feet sort of look like they are floating. I'm having the same problem with a composite of my own. I think the leg shadows look fat compared to the legs themselves and they don't seem to extend down to the feet......

I just noticed that the shadow also looks bigger than the ant...? How did you do that?

Over all I still like it a lot

I like it, nice rendering. But indeed the shadow looks a bit weird.

the light source seems to be coming from behind the camera in the background, but on the ant, its coming from the top...

Nice. There seem no shadow under the hand from the ant. Isn't the grass paintfx or fur?

Hey dude, nice work
The shadow does need a little fixing...
maybe less spread and maybe play with the angel
of the light source... because your character looks like it is floating just a little.

Keep it up bro.
