Cats and Girls by bcnyArt Cats and Girls by bcnyArt
I did many attempts in this illustration. I seriously considered whether or not to blur the background. It's the final result.
Hope you'll like it: )

Oops I posted critique as comment, sorry my mistake. Could repost it if you'd like.

Forgot to add.
Overall you catched the "movement" very good, now the time to improve it.

Well it's a a nice picture, and since you requested critique:

The point of attention of this picture should be the near girl and her cats, but strangely when looking at it -  the attention goes into the center of the picture to the blurry houses.

Why? Maybe because

Dark girl onto dark background, she blends in too deeply
 
The left down corner looks empty, some small detail there like box, plant or another cat(s) near the girl (grey, orange or white to balance the cool  athmosphere) would bring attention to this part of the picture.

Girl and cats are very detailed, but the stones beneath her feet are painted roughly, like they are far away, would be nice to add there some minor details like cracks, thin shadows, grass roots or maybe flowers etc. 

Also the sky look.. sorta empty. Adding some (light) clouds or more visible gradient would fill it.

The houses at the back are overblurred, something like that we can observe only when heavy fog is occured while on picture we are observing noon and perfect weather.

The girl far away is blend into heavy shadow with her dark dress too, if not for her hair  -  we would not see her at all.

Details, more details.

____

Hope it helps.

Composition and artwork in general is good, but you need to work more on your anatomy I guess - the pose of the girl in the foreground left does not feel very natural.

Excellent layout! The blur gives a great sense of atmosphere and depth and helps keep the attention in the foreground where it should be, and bouncing between the two main figures. Great work!

I think that it is this street (Monastery on the hill), but there are no photos by street view.

Ok, definitly Prague ....  that would also explain why i know these buildings in the foreground somehow. I remember passing them when i walked down from the Hradschin.
But long ago^^

Beautiful picture

A detail: I seem to see that there is a concern of "height" of the character of the bottom. I see this character a little big.

Love it.  I like how it shows 'hey catch up' and the other girl is going 'wait up' and the cats are going this looks like it'll be a fun adventure.
