KOTA: Mika Concept by mistformsquirrel KOTA: Mika Concept by mistformsquirrel
Another piece of concept art - this is Mika; the first pilot the story will introduce. You can't see it in the picture, but she has a ponytail with a bow in it.

I'm iffy on if I'm going to leave her jacket green or not too... we'll see on that.

This is really nice! Even though I'm not a big fan of the manga eyes, I think you did a really good job on this. I especially like the simple yet effective curve of the lips and the fold on the jacket. The color really adds to the depth.

The only thing I would say is you might want to rethink the light source. As it is, the skin seems very bright, like a light is shining in the face but the light doesn't land on the chest or goggles in the same way. The only reason I bring this up is it would be a great opportunity to throw a shine on the goggles with a little sparkle in the corner (also on the clasp).

I think you just nailed what's been bugging me about this pic. I liked it; but "something" felt off; and I think that's it right there.

The light is supposed to be behind her; but her face is too well lit, and the contrast is too great between the shadows and the rest of it... hrmm...

Good spot check <,<b

I might fiddle with fixing this tonight, but I'll probably leave it as is and keep it in mind for next time. (I'm trying to keep up my pace of 1 piece of art per night. <>_<>)
