I really like this piece of art, in general I like the step towards anime and drawing people you've taken. The weakness of the artwork is its originality, but hey, it's fanart so what is there to be expected? But besides that, there's a lot of good in your artwork.

I like the technique you've used - your Copic work looks great, and your colouring original, even though part of it is inspired by your reference picture. And on top of this, the Photoshop touch-ups. It is clear a computer has been used on this to add different elements, but what I like about it all is that it is not so easily traceable as to what have you done, exactly. Even though I actually saw what you were doing, I couldn't make a same kind of picture as this.
As an idea this fanart isn't that original, being done with a reference, but the technique you've used to create it is what gives it more originality and value.
Adding the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann title on the lower right corner is a nice touch, but I feel a bit sad that the first Japanese letter is hidden in the darkness of the shades in Kamina's cape. You can notice it's there, but I think a person who knows Japanese can't make it out what it is.

I enjoy the colours and the variation of contrast in this picture. The extremely dark parts against a almost white background seem to balance each other out. Though, looking at the lighter end of Kamina's cape, in comparison to the lights and shades everywhere else, makes you wonder where is the light coming from. Maybe you should in the future consider the source of light, perhaps?
The wind-effect created with Kamina's cape, belt and Simon's jacket gives the picture livelyness, as well as those black petals(?) flying about. They're all very good details that make this picture even greater.

In conclusion I could say that your technique and the impact you create with this artwork is what's really good about it, and things you could consider more are originality and details, such as where is the light in this picture coming from and somehow showing that one Japanese letter from the Gurren Lagann title. All in all, great job, keep it up!

I work(ed?) as a waitress/bartender, and they shut down nightclubs and restaurants over here for 2 months. XD Restaurants opened 4 days ago, but ours has decided to stay closed.

I just had an interview for a job related to what I study - IT! So here's hoping I can switch careers and work with what I am interested in ♥

Aww man I've put +300 hours into like... Witcher 3 X'D And Baldur's Gate 2, lmao

You should totally try a FF game! I recommend FF 9, it's imo the best but super underrated. ouo

Glad you enjoyed the lines! Lovely work ♥

Ahhh I'm currently unemployed due to the pandemic X'D
But I study from home! Hoping to change careers.  Yotsuba Pray 
I might be getting a job thru school, actually!
I spend a lot of my free time shuffling between drawing, training, and fiddling with my boyfriend's sailboat. I've never really gotten into Animal Crossing, dunno why! 
Games I'm kinda stuck on (because I forget to take time to play them "OTL) are Final Fantasy IX and Resident Evil 3 (Remake).
