Holy heck, this is absolutely stunning. Kiki here looks absolutely adorable. The line-art is very solid and the coloring is just beautiful, you also did an amazing job with the shading. It's quite an original idea too, I haven't seen anything quite like this, I love how she's drawing her surroundings. The soft colors really help it feel more dreamlike in a way. I'm sure you get this a lot, but your character design is great. The expression in her face is amazing, you really captured happiness in this drawing. I really like this drawing, 5 out of 5 stars.
