Hello again

The biggest problem I had with this was knowing what colour the tinge was in the fur.

I tried setting highlight, shadow and neutral but found that I did better just setting the neutral and adjusting the a and b curves.

I assumed that the critter's eyes were red and adjuster the yellow to give a purer red without turning them into searchlights.

The tree trunk also looks a believable colour.

He looks pretty good..the color to avoid in the fur is green. 
Use the hue clock to check the dark parts of the fur for a green cast.
If you find one you need to remove it as much as possilbe. 

The idea here is that in a lot of protraits with dark brown hair the trap is green.  It is usually slight and hard to catch.
