^-^ You already know how much I love this one :aww: 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 ^-^

:+fav: - Expressions, poses (Akiko and Kielie in particular), general mood the drawing portrays and conveys.

:giggle: I try ;P And you guys give me so much to feel warm and fuzzy about too (your surprises, for example ;P) ^-^ I'm still in my learning stages, and learning from one of *the* best artists out there, so of course I'd learn quickly!

Aww ~^^~ I don't know what to say, juust .. that it's a huuuuge honour and privilege for me to help little you through your 'learning stages' - and that I'd do it any time :aww:

Besides, I'm learning from you just as much - you're doing a great job on expressions and poses, much better I do ^-^ So, in a way, we're learning from each other, aren't we? :giggle:

Pfff, your poses and expressions are fine ;P I don't see anything that needs improvement with them ^-^ And I'm definitely learning a *lot* from you too ^^

:hug: to you too! ^-^

Meep, evil devArt didn't show me that you replied until now ^^; And really, I'm learning just as much from you - from poses and expressions, to lots of little ideas about what we could draw :aww: (See, *you* could be my muse - then Akiko doesn't have to be a muse for both of us :giggle: )

Plus, I love to have another hooopeless romantic to dream with, too ^-^
