But I think the neck is too straight.
What do you think?

Overall, excellent job on this one!

I had a few notes on technique and such. The most immediate is that your brush strokes need to follow her fur. Fur typically flows in a vertical direction on the neck, and your strokes appear to make them flow horizontally. This is good for brushed steel and other metals, as well as turned wood, but on fur and other fibrous surfaces the brush strokes need to follow the "knap" of the fur.

Another thing I noticed is that the shading that indicates the interior of the ear should continue further up the ear, so that it makes the ear look less "thick".

Finally, the edges of the mane where the hair curves around should be rougher that the sides of the mane. This makes it look like hair rather than a sheet of brushed plastic.

This is a good painting, though! :)
