Reika, Miki's aggressive rival for Hiro's affections, was a fun character for me to create. I wanted her to come across at first as a stereotypical 'bad girl', then gradually show that she had a legitimate point of view and was more than just a snarling villian. By the third book ("Autumn") she is, I hope, capable of surprising the reader with her actions.

If you'd like to see Reika in action, make sure you check out my Miki Falls preview, which features her prominently:

Have you ever thought about drawing gothic or emo characters? I have been trying to find out how to draw characters with that style but I cant find any books or pictures or anything to help me figure out how to draw them. I mean drawing chains and tatoos are hard enough. Can you help me?

Awesome work!!
I wish i could read Miki Falls...
But sadly it haven't been realised in Brazil, and my english is too limited, so i can't read it in english.

Her foot is a tad short, but that's a minor detail. ^^

I like her. I don't know why, but I do.

Lulz, she reminds me of Heather from Total Drama Island. ;P

Those snug black capris got me thinking....... How much of real fashion is actually reflected in cartoons and comics? I don't see welding goggles used as hair accessories much. But there is a Catholic school nearby that actually uses the uniforms. Hmm...

Why is her foot so tiny?
Anyways I am going to have to get your books. They sound like they could be a good read. Though I doubt I can get them in Australia D:

I remember the preview. ^^ I think you did a really good job. She does seem mean, but you can see her soft side at the end of the preview. Great job! ^^

I love how you made this! I love the back ground, her pose...
And I KNOW you didn't ask for advanced ctirique... Plus, I know I can't do any better for the time being, but feet are as long as your forearm. If you're going to make her forearm that long, he feet need to be too. If that was her in real life, she couldn't walk. Her feet would be too small to hold her up... Sorry if I'm being rude!
