I had a lot of fun and practice doing this picture...

... trying to get better and better. >_<

Read her story here! [link]

Edit: Revised the colors a bit, and changed the shoes thanks to a few people's suggestions XD

I don't remember if I mentioned this before, but this one of my favorite Era artworks! The colors, pose, mood and angle of the drawing is very dynamic and eye-catching! Since I've seen this drawing of yours, this one will always be one of my favorite Era artwork. (Although those postcard drawings with the read and grayscale tones are getting to be tied with this one in my opinion, I like the color usage and style).

I'm happy to see that you've put it on the slipcase for the printed version of Ibuki. ^_^

I like your art style. It looks like it's from a high quality animation! :)
I like how you drew the motion of her falling and the shattered glass.

This is a very good drawing. The coloring job is real nice and the reflection
from the sunset looks good. I think the background makes it pop to me
and you made the city interesting, so many different models of buildings
around the area, i think I even see a upside down city above, or its part
of a building thats connected to another that hangs down, I dunno.
And the clouds look nice though the sky makes me wonder since theres
a circular formation being formed, I'm wondering if something is happening as well
as her breaking through the glass, like something catastrophic. Nice job, definitely faving this.

Egad, that second critique is so OCD :D Anyway, if there are any errors, they're not immediately noticeable - you have to have Monk-esque power of observation to spot something like patterns in the glass shards. In any case, I think this is the best work in your featured gallery - I like it especially because the pose is fairly calm, even though it's an action scene. Also, the idea of a blind girl doing something like this makes the character just... interesting, and I want to see more of her.
