I was looking for fan art for the Anime AKB0048 when I saw this.
This kind of art really speaks to me, I love how life-like the women look. I did not know that AKB48 was an actual group and originally mistook your art as a 'realistic adaption of the anime characters'; the fact that they are based on real people and that you managed to capture their "idol-ness" so well makes me feel even more impressed with the piece. 
Great work, keep it up!
