Any suggestions and critiques are welcome!
You could work on some of the darker shading, maybe try and make them a little darker to add some more contrast. Other than that, I'd say sign it, it looks done! Good job.
The fur and blades of grass are just perfect. Beautifully rendered. What program did you use? What brushes? These are two of the most difficult things to do - great work!
Thank you guys!
shrunkendesigner you`re right for the shadows.
@reachm I used Photoshop CS5. For 90% I used Basic Brushes and one from the new CS5 Round Point Low Bristle Count Brush with Opacity jitter - pen pressure.

his hair looks too much like a grass, i feel flickerning for that repeating of thin lines. Also eyes could be less human caricature
Thank you, man!
I think there's an issue in terms of detail; there's too much of it. The old masters didn't render and detail everything. It's admirable that you're capable of achieving such rendering, but compositionally, you need to decide where it can best be utilized and where you can let things fall off into "sfumato," or haze. In short, detail things that are most compositionally important (where you want the viewer to look), and don't be afraid to leave other things soft and blurry (like you did with the far background). The Mona Lisa is a prime example.
His mouth's a little ambiguous. Took me a while to know that those two white thingies lower down are his theeth. I keep seeing his mouth under his nose.
