I love Tanchou! I will assume 'she' is a girl since I can't see 'her' front.

The colors of this painting are so warm and inviting, they work perfectly with the friendship theme of the piece. I love how you've displayed the characters emotions through the details of their designs and their facial expression.

I am completely in love with your shading style. It's so soft and elegant!
