It looks good. One thing I don't like is one eye, but I know that eyes are complex so take it as I didn't write anything against because if I would try to do it, it would be...  No good. :)
Will you try to make some more pet from Pandora ? :)

I think the eye are ok.
If Wokan did this sketch at the first time, it's really good! I'm *usually* really really bad at sketching people, but with more experience one will be better. I know that, because I did also some sketches here you can see my first Na'vi sketch...after some months, I been better.

Oh well, I think, I'm going to sketch something (can't sleep)...

This was my first go at drawing one of these.
I completely forgot about the other eye(s) until you brought it up lol.
But yes, I will be making a lot more of these Pandora drawings

Not bad.

The main thing that needs fixing is that you missed adding the secondary eye.

Aside from that, it looks quite a bit like some of the earlier concept sketches for Ikran, which isn't a bad thing.

The other minor areas that need some attention are:

- The neural tendrils (queue) "sprout" from further back on the head
- The lower jaw should not be shaded near the base; this makes it appear two-dimensional
- The lower jaw should have two rows of teeth (which would also help with the above)
- The eye should be more round
- The tip of the snout should be rounder

If you want some advice, the Ikran are basically (at least down to the neck) monitor lizards with fish jaws. Monitor lizards are all lizards from family varanidae, and look very similar to Ikran:

And some reference photos of fish jaws, in case it is useful to you:

Thanks for the feedback and positive criticism Raiden.
I knew when I finished it that there where many things wrong with it
especially the lower jaw... I was not happy about that part.
And yes, my reference photo was a piece of concept art that I found
on Bing  ;D
I've only been drawing for a little over 3 months now. So I still have
a lot to learn
