As always, your work is stunningly beautiful. There are a few things that stand out to me, as my work is primarily with equines.

Firstly, there is a bulge on the neck (I'm going to take a wild guess and say that's where the grown zebra met the foal?) that is really throwing me off. I really loved the upper portion of the zebra up until that point.

Second, the tail is a little strange, even for a zebra. I quite personally like it, but believe it looks a little too much like something Corella D'Vil would wear. (101 Dalmations, for anyone who didn't get my reference)

Third, the head and neck are not proportionate to the rest of the body; another factor that makes this look a little off.

I love the Harlequin and the rat, they both add to the playfulness of this manipulation.

Vision- 5 Stars
I really enjoyed the intent of this manipulation. :)

Originality- 4.5 Stars
The majority of this is unique, but you'd be surprised how many zebra's stripes are being stolen nowadays.

Technique- 4.5
Due to some things I spotted this didn't become a five star. But it's still amazing. ;)

Impact- 5 Stars
You really have to look hard (or now way too much about everything) to see the few errors (or, at least, things I didn't quite get) that were here. :)
What do you think?
