^-^ You already know how much I love this one
I think you did a great job on the drawing - of course, you did spend a week and half on it, but trust me - the effort totally shows - this is one of the best pictures you've posted so far. Especially the expressions are priceless; one of the highlights on those is definitely Kielie's, who is looking all sneaky and playful (and of whom you can tell just by looking at her that she's going to pounce on a very very suprised Mary in the very next second, ensuring chaos and quite probably them scuffling, too /gg). The other characters' expressions are no less well done though - the way Iolana looks is just perfect, and Akiko giggling and laughing on the floor represents your personality so well, it's amazing ^-^ Her expression and her pose are great; probably the very best ones in the picture (and that means a lot, seeing how well the others are done!), and they capture the mood of the drawing so well too - one can literally feel the happi- and cheerfulness you embody, the huge amount of love and appreciation from you towards your friends, just looking at the picture.
Critique? The only thing I could think of, really, is that it feels that Akiko somehow has a tad too much of her body in the air - not much, maybe just half an inch or so, but then again, her current pose portrays her feelings so well, I'm not even sure whether changing it would kinda .. dumb down the emotions here actually, so I'd say; it's best left as it is ^-^ It's a wonderful drawing, wonderfully drawn, and coming from a wonderful person too - I love it to bits ^-^
