This is the first of fifteen illustrations (what am I getting myself into) I'll be doing to celebrate my story Jinx's fifteenth birthday.

My goal is to get some background practice. I've never been really good at them, and I almost never illustrated environments from my story. This is me trying to change things!

This is the main character Samiko, doing Samiko things — sulking at night in her room at the Alliance (governmental armed forces) and thinking about how she doesn’t really belong anywhere.

It's so romantic in a 19th century art kind of sense. And I know you may think I'm making fun of you here so I would like to just point out that I mean it in a good way. :)

I'm surprise to see you write that you don't do backgrounds that often. This is really great. I love the atmosphere you've created. Can't wait to see more!
